I'm could use some help - I need a 50' HDMI cable - for a 4k tv . TIA Bob
Optical cables can support very long distances. The CNET article mentioned that some supported distances of over 100 meters (330 feet). The fiber-optic part of such a cable is immune to electrical interference (whereas with normal cables, you'd want to be sure to pick a well-shielded cable to protect against such interference).Another option is an optical hdmi cable . Is one of these preferred ?
Crutchfield: What you need to know about HDMI ARC and eARC: How to connect your TV to your receiver or sound baralso plan on using the smart feature in the tv to access Netflix so I want the audio sent to my pre-amp - should it be ARC or EARC ?
Brian - the extender looks like a great alternative. FYI - I am putting all my a/v gear and source devices in a closet so there will be no direct view of it from my living room.
I have a couple questions if you don't mind.
1. if all my source devices are plugged into my a/v pre-amp would i just plug the extender's hdmi into the hdmi out on the a/v pre-amp
2. if I'm using the smart tv to access Netflix would the audio from the tv's ARC HDMI out go back to my a/v pre-amp using the extender
3. would you have a recommendation of what brand / model I should look at
