What I need so I can see the Menu in the Samsung 4KUHD player at start up is to be able to pass a 4k/60p signal- I have the Samsung HDMI signal running directly out to my JVC projector. Now I also have another 35 ft Cabernet Redmere HDMI cable coming out of my DVDO iScanMini, which is receiving the signal from my Pioneer 4k receiver to the iScan Mini to the JVC RS 400 projector and this signal will pass a 4k/60p signal? So the DVDO iScan Mini must be sending out a stronger signal to the HDMI cable than the Samsung is ?? Now last night I just tried a 20 ft Monoprice 4k certified cable and a 15 ft 4k certified cable and connected the 2 with the new Monoprice Blackbird 4k/60p extender and it is working and sending a 4k/60p signal. So I can now finally see the Menu at start up on the 4k Samsung 8500 UHD player. NOW note I just hooked this up last night so I haven't tried it out but 2 times, so I don't know how stable and reliable it is but for now it is a much cheaper solution than paying $300 or more for a HDMI optical cable. NOTE also the 20 ft certified cable is a lot thicker than the 15 ft certified cable, so maybe two 20 ft runs would work just as well.
It sounds like we're having the same issue. I cannot see the Oppo UDP-203 menu via the Monoprice Luxe at 35 ft. If price was no object, what 35 ft. runs out there would meet our needs? Obviously, I don't want to spend money unnecessarily, but I'd like to know if there are ANY 35 ft. solutions that would work.
I posted the below in it's own thread, but it appears I should have posted it here. Here's my original post reposted here:
Long Run HDMI Cable Recommendation
I was referred to this forum, I believe, to ask for a recommendation for a long run HDMI cable that will support my current media room configuration, which is:
Amazon Fire TV
Presently, I have the following cables between the source devices and the AVR:
Monoprice Certified Premium High Speed HDMI® Cable, HDR, 6ft - Black
I also have a this cable running from the AVR to the display:
Monoprice Luxe Series CL3 Active High Speed HDMI Cable, 35ft
However, the above is not Certified Premium, and apparently is not not possible to find long runs certified as such.
I have had some issues like not being able to get a signal from the Oppo UDP-203 when loaded to the menu screen with the display set to Deep Color On, yet it plays a 4K UHD and receives a signal when auto-loaded, video ghosting in small amounts, and random, infrequent audio dropouts.
However, on Blue Jean Cables they make it sound like a cabling issue is a fairly all or nothing type deal. These issues don't seem like that. Yet, I would like the peace of mind that comes with Certified Premium, so I am looking for recommendation on the most future proof, cost effective way to do one or two longer HDMI runs to my display that will mitigate these issues. Basically, I'd like to find a 35 ft. run I can be assured is Certified Premium even if the packaging itself doesn't say so.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
