Yesterday i took delivery of my new TV set, a Samsung Q7FN.
Due to space constraints and the way everything was set up prior to the TV upgrade i had a really long 3.6m cable going from the HTPC (Ryzen system, RTX2070) to the TV and it was never able to handle HDR [email protected]
signals on the previous TV set, you could count on it going haywire trying to handle that kind of signal, which hasn't changed in this new TV.
Anyway, i picked up two shorter 2m cables i had lying around (a cheap Pix cable and a mid range priced Diamond Gold) and both managed the HDR [email protected]
signal like it was no big deal, i even played Forza Horizon 4 for 3 or so hours and everything was nice and smooth.
So i come to ask, what is the maximum cable lenght advisable to use in this scenario before having to go with active boosted cables or optical fiber?
The beauty of this new TV is that i can move the one connect box pretty much anywhere in the equipment rack to achieve a desirable lenght, so i'm mostly just curious about the topic.
