Burned by ATZEBE 100' hdmi cable.

I purchased an ATZEBE cable from amazon (hybrid fiber) to connect my media rack to my 4k TV.



Media rack consists of: PC, Roku Ultra, Denon AVR-X2600H reciever.



4k TV is an LG OLED65B9PUA.



4k has never reliably ran between these devices. I already have a quality Cat6A cable connected between the two (the media rack is also the home server rack). Should I be looking for an HDBaseT product?


I've seen the RUIPRO cables tossed around, but after the ATZEBE, i'm not convinced.

ATZEBE cables are a virtual clone of the Ruipro4k cables, with considerably less quality in build and components used. However, 100' is going to be difficult for any cable unless you can go source to sink, with no extenders, wall plates, adapters, etc in-between.



HDBT is an option but you are limited until the latest Valens VS3000 chipsets are available and incorporated into the units. They were announced a year ago but have yet to appear in consumer devices, yet. If you consider HDBT you should run solid copper core CAT-6a (non-CCA/CCS and not CAT-6 pre-terminated ethernet) cable. At 100' I assume you have easy access to your cabling or are using a conduit.

I never trust an atom, they make up everything.

Plenty of folk have the longer length RuiPro4K cables working reliably in very similar setups to yours - assuming you have a decent returns option from your supplier I would give it a go.

Alright,



I've got the Ruipro cable installed and I can confirm another happy customer. 4k60hz 4:4:4 works on my pc through the denon, as does 4k60HzHDR 4:2:0 on the roku ultra.



Now i've just gotta see about getting a return from amazon....
