I am looking for a supplier of a 4 meter HDMI cable.
Any recommendations ?
The 'standard' lengths available from the various manufacturers of HDMI cables we can source are 2, 3 and 5m - with some longer (though expensive) cables coming along from the more esoteric brands.
The difference in price between a Molex 3m and a Molex 5m is less than £15.00.
Joe, talking of cables ,there is a website about to start selling longer versions ot the cable between Pio 434 screen and media box. Do you know what the maximum length of cable should be. I think they sell them up to 20m.
Can I have a 5m cable please. PM/E-mail me with details. I can phone you if you like. I live not too far away from you.
Do you mean a 'custom built ' R04 to PDP-434PE Screen cable or Pioneers own 10m Copper or 30m Fibre Optic cable's - if it is Custom I guess they are doing both the Video and Comms connections.
Pioneer don't recommend going over the 10m using a copper cable - I guess if someone's making a Custom one they will have tested it!
how good is this molex cable compared to the next one up?(2m)u
how much is the next one up?
The 2m Molex are excellent - over 2m they are pretty much on a par with anything else I've tried using a Standard Definition signal
The BetterCables Digital Magic cables do work well over long distances and I tend to recommend these if you are going to 5m or over using multiple cables.
I've yet to try the WireWorld which claims to have benefits at any length - and a price tag to match the claims.
Joe which cable would you recommend for a 2m connection between a pio 868 and pio 504. You have molex and digital magic on you website. You said the molex is good for short lenghts does that mean i would see no benfit if i got the more expensive digital magic one. Are there any shorter lenghts i.e. 1 m or even 0.5m
Have you tryed the Wireword at 8 to 10 meters?
Or any Other HDMI cable over 7 meters that's better than a good component cable?
Not yet - they WONT send me one on approval to test against our Molex and BetterCables cables!
PS I'll have info on the website about new HDMI cables from Supra in the next day or so.
