i'm hoping that the technology has started to catch up since these postings.
I have an onkyo TX-NR585 receiver in my audio closet that's 40-50ft hdmi cable length away from my tv (after it goes up thru the rafters and back down).
and i'd like to take advantage of some black Friday sales and buy a new 75" UHD LED tv....maybe LG 75SM9070PUA (claims a 240Hz refresh rate).
i'm ready to rip out the drywall and lay some pvc pipe in order to future proof, but don't want to do all that if there isn't a cable that'll feed the new UHD TV's
is there a cable out there that I can run from my closet that'll support the new UHD TV's? pls don't tell me that i'm doomed to live with my current 8 yr old 55" 1080p tv. I currently run a 55' monoprice active hdmi cable and it works fine.
i'm not a full-on techy like most of you folks, so my eyes glaze over when I start seeing all of the Gbps and copper wire discussions. but I've got a half way decent surround sound system in my living room and i'd like to tack on one of the newer UHD TV's to it.
btw...is 18.2Gbps capability for cable performance what I need?
does the AWG really make a diff at this length?
some cables that I've seen online are...
