I bought my Optoma UHD60 a couple of months ago and have yet to install it. I have a couple of concerns. First, I currently have the Optoma HD26, which is a great projector, and I am still wondering why I bought the UHD60. Be it may, though, I did buy it for around $1,700, and now I want to install it. Second, I have the Sanus VMPR1 mounting hardware installed with my HD26. I tried to find out if the Sanus will also work with the UHD60. Optoma says that if I buy their hardware and it falls it will be under warranty.... wanna bet! I checked out their hardware and they look kinda weak. As a lark, I contacted Sanus, and they says the VMPR1 is the best (at over $200). I've not had any problem using it with the HD26, however, they had 2 reviews, both of they said the same thing.. that it was delivered without all of the necessary hardware to install it. However, everyone I wrote to said I need to get a new one. Is anyone using the SANUS VMPR1 with their UHD60?
Next question... my HDMI cables have been installed to the projector for a while. I bought the Cinnamon HDMI about a year ago. Any chance it is 2.0? My guess is it is 2.0, but I didn't see any markings on it. I had to throw the baby out with the bathwater. It's a great cable. I did by and replace all of my HDMI cables within the last several months. I first bought HDMI cables that had colored connectors because I thought it would help me identify them if I needed to do something with them. I bought them from Monoprice and I got a great price, however, the cable was kinda slim, so I did some research and it was recommended to get "certified" HDMI cables, so I bought some "certified 2.0 HDMI cables" from Monoprice. If I had bought them from Audioquest, I would have been broke, however, the price from Monoprice was great, so I replaced all my HDMI cables to hook up my DISH Satellite Receiver (AV3), my oppo BDP-93 Blu-ray Disk player (AV1), and my Samsung UBD M8500 4K UHD Blu-Ray Disk Player (AV2). All of that is connected to my Yamaha Aventage RX-A3070 Receiver. My cable from the AVR to the HD26 projector is only about 8'.
After all the dumb info...
1. Will the SANUS VMPR! Mounting hardware work with the Optoma UHD60? (to repeat myself, is anyone using the SANUS hardware?)
2. Should I throw the Audioquest Cinnamon HDMI cable out and get a new 2.0 HDMI cable? (Is there anyway to test the cable?)
Thanks to all.
