JVC RS2000 4K HDMI 40FT Run - Need advice

I am going to be taking delivery of my RS2000 in the next week or so and I am starting to question my HDMI Run. I currently have a high speed 40ft cable that is run to my 5040UB. I have never had any issues with it but obviously it is not a true 4k PJ.

I have been reading a few blips here and there that long run HDMI cables can fry your Receiver's HDMI board? Is there any truth to this? I have a Marantz SR6011 that I have been running this 40ft cable for 2+ yrs no issues on 1080P.

I do have some cat5e run from my closet to the PJ.

Should I try and see if the RS2000 will work with my 40ft cable or is there no chance?

Do I get HDMI over Ethernet Kit? Something else? How hard are these to install?


Looking for some advice as I am going to be excited to get the PJ up and running and I don't want to damage anything in the process.

Thank you!

First check if your current HDMI cable is rated at 18gbps. If, so try it with the new projector. I did a 60 ft. run from the back of the Marantz 8012 receiver to my RS1000. No problem with the image.

I would suggest that there is no need for a separate thread for this question. Check out the JVC NX7 RS2000 forum for more information.
To avoid all kinds of issues I suggest a fiber optic cable. Many uses have had great success with the ones from Ruipro. These seem to work with no problems.

Thank you for the response. The RS2000 thread is a nightmare to read through.

The problem with adding a new cable is my basement is finished and I don’t have an easy way to fish the cable. That will be a last resort.

For the moment I may run a temporary cable but I am now curious what options I have with my cat5e runs?

High speed HDMI that supports 4K is extremely finicky as it is. I wouldn't recommend adding more complexity by trying to make cat5e do the job. I'd get a fiber HDMI cable and run it. If you have a dark light controlled room, you can probably get away with running it along the baseboard as the room will be pitch black dark anyway.

I took a look and was initially thinking maybe I could pull the cable via the cable that exists but it feels like the installers tacked the cables in the ceiling

I can get by with a temporary cable run outside the walls but the wife nor I will want that. Looking at my space I think it's probably doable for a pro to run the cable.

I measured and I think I can make the run with a 30ft cable too.

Would love to hear any other input from anyone regarding any options or things that have worked.

Do I need a fiber optic cable? I am concerned about it getting damaged if I run it in the ceiling.

At 30' you can use a premium certified cable. Much cheaper than fiber optic. Also not near as fragile.
