I'm about to purchase the following from Monoprice for my LG 7600 LED TV. (sorry if this is the wrong forum - wasn't sure)


10 ft high speed 28AWG cable (From Denon AVR-1713 HDMI passthrough to LG 7600)


3 x 5ft 28AWG high speed cable (PS3 to Denon, FiOS HDTV box to Denon, and HD-DVD to Denon)


Do I assume the aggregate length between source and TV for HDMI cable length purposes?

(i.e. 5ft from HDTV box to Denon + 10ft from Denon to LG7600 = 15ft total)


If so, would I lose the high speed capability of the HDMI cables? Will this have any real-world effect?


Would this be solved by using REDMERE cable between the Denon and LG7600?


Thanks in advance.

The cables in question would probably be fine. Personally, I'd spend a few extra dollars and get 24AWG HDMI cables.

Thanks.


I'm concerned that using 24AWG cables would be very difficult. I have an extremely low-profile wall mount, and doubt that I'd be able to make the cable bends with the 24AWG.


Would one 10 foot REDMERE cable fix the issue?

It's a crapshoot sitting in my home to give you a definitive answer.



Contact Monoprice for support, that way if there is a problem.... you can blame them.


My thoughts were to get "better" cables and hopefully run them once.

if you have any tight bends, avoid 24AWG

I understand that 24awg would work. Unfortunately, those cables would be way too stiff to use under the low profile wall mount.


I just want to confirm that I lose the high speed qualification becuase the combined length exceeds the standard, even though individually both cables are high speed (for 28awg).


My understanding is that redmere hdmi cables maintain their high speed rating over much greater distances. So would the main cable from the avr to the tv be sufficient if it were a redmere cable (using 28awg for the individual components) to maintain the high speed rating? I'd prefer not to use all redmere cables, as that jumps into the $100 range quickly.

28AWG will work (probably). Use what is easier for you. But, a 90 degree "wall saver" would work just as well if you use a higher or lower gauge cable.


You don't need Redmere cables. You won't lose "high speed" with a total of 15' using certified 28AWG HDMI cables.


As I suggested.... buy them, run them and hopefully, only do it once. Retrofitting sucks and is costlier. Call Monoproce for technical assistance/support. Pay now or pay later... your call.


Over-thinking is not equatable to Over-engineering (when applicable).
