I want to connect a couple of different 10 meter HDMI cables directly from the Marantz to the projector before I snake one through the wall. So here is the question. What is the easiest way for me to determine that the JVC is receiving the correct UHD signal and is displaying the pixel shifted 4K signal? As you can imagine, I do not want to go through the hassle of snaking the HDMI cable through the wall only to find out that it is not passing through the correct video signals. I'd like to see some proof on my screen that the correct video signal is being passed through. Is there a button on the JVC that I can press to visually see what signal is being outputted by the JVC?
Just as an FYI, the first HDMI cable I will try is the 10 meter Ruipro HDMI Premium Certified cable which has been tested and shown to accurately pass HDMI signals. But one always wants to "trust but verify" such claims.

Test the cabling by hooking it up between your Oppo -> 8802 -> JVC before going through the wall. I'm using a customzed URC remote but I think there is an info or menu button on the JVC PJ remote that will give you the info or just scroll through the picture menus as I think it's the last selection on the right.
