Just UGH!! I have the Epson 5040, Oppo 203 and the Marantz 7702mkii. I have no choice but to run an approx. 30 foot cable due to my room layout. I have been using PJ's for 20 years. My first was a Sharpvision LCD hah. Anyway my current set up has been nothing but problems due to my HDMI run. I have used Cat cable with Key Digital, Audioquest HDMI's and Celerity fiber optic cables. My last cable was a Monoprice active HDMI.
With my new set up I just keep loosing the signal on everything, Optimum box, Oppo, Xbox, PS4. I finally tried the Celerity 35 foot fiber optic cable. It worked for a solid week with everything including 4K movies. I ran it through my ceiling, worked great for 3 weeks. Last night I put on Da vinci Code 4K, the signal kept dropping out. 20-30 times during the entire movie. Than I tried TV watching, same thing.
How can it work for almost a month and now problems. Maybe I turned it on in a different order...I am going to do more troubleshooting later on tonight. I have about had it. I hate to say that this might be it for me. Looking at the biggest TV's money can by right now. I hate to give my PJ hobby but I have about had it.
I purchased the wireless Epson, the UBE. I can't even get that to work. With the PJ and receiver only 8 feet apart, it will just drop out the signal. No idea why. It will not even recognize my cable box. It says no signal but transmitter located. It will run Oppo, Xbox, PS4 (with some drop outs) but will not bring up a picture using the wireless. I am just ready to throw in the towel, just UGH...
