Will my 7 year old HDMI cable cut it or have there been advances that I will be missing out on if I keep it?
Run length will be around 8 to 10 metres. Can folks please give their recommendations for a cable pared to this AVR?
Finally, if I buy a flash new cable but run it through my old wall mechs................?
I can't see any advertising when looking at mechs that go on about all the new standards? They just seem the same as I bought 7 years ago. I like to use these mechs to keep things tidy.
Thanks for your help.
Go to HDMI.org and catch up on the various versions and capabilities of HDMI. It just keeps changing. My preference is for solid copper passive cables under 20 feet in length. Longer cables and active powered cables can be a problem; so read up before buying a particular cable and make sure you can return it if it does not work. I never put HDMI cables in the wall but if you do put them in conduit to make it easier to run new cables.
I have no idea what the term "Mechs" refers to.
