I also had the HDMI 1.4 cables and it would not work with my Epson 4040. I upgraded to Monoprice Cabernet Ultra Series Active High Speed HDMI cables and everything has worked flawlessly for 2 years!!! (Projector was installed on 1/21/2017).
I have a 40 foot running from receiver to Epson projector (Monitor 1 out) and a 45 foot running from receiver to LG OLED in the game room (Monitor 2 out), and even tried a 75 foot running from projector to guest room LG 4K HDR 43" inch (Zone 2 out) and I am getting 4K and HDR with no drop-outs!!
The Monoprice Cabernet are rated for 18Gbps at lengths up to 50 feet and they go on sale frequently for 30-50% off. I believe I paid $20-$25 for each of my cables (40, 45, and 75 feet).
Here is a link:
I then purchased a few of the premium certified cables to connect the 4k blu ray players and Roku and ATV4k, and again they work flawless and are not expensive (under $5 each). I get 6 feet cables for connecting devices as I read they are the ideal length. Here is a link:
Hope that helps!!!
