CEC not working with Fire TV Stick 4k when used with HDMI extension cables


Standard Member
I have a Fire TV Stick 4k plugged into a Yamaha RX-V683 and when connected directly, CEC works consistently with the name of the Fire Stick being displayed on the amplifier and on the TV's source menu along with being able to control the Fire Stick via the TV or amplifier's remote. When connected via an extension cable, CEC often doesn't work. The Fire Stick is so large, the extension cable is required if it's not to obstruct the two adjacent HDMI inputs on the back of the amplifier. I've tried four different extension cables and the issue is seen for most of the time with each cable whereas when plugged in directly the issue is never seen.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on or what the solution might be? Can anyone recommend a short ~10cm HDMI extension cable that will be likely to work?

Thanks in anticipation!
