Sky q quality drop


Standard Member
Hello. I have quite a simple setup. 4k TCL tv on the wall, 3 metre hdmi cable through the chimney breast that was connected directly to the sky q box. I bought a sideboard and because i need a bit of extra length i bought a ugreen 0.5 metre extension cable and placed the sky q on the sideboard. Now what has happend is that with the extension cable i have noticed a reduction in quality. Its subtle, colours seem washed out a bit, movement isnt that smooth and mysteriously the dolby audio symbol is being displayed. Is is possible that a reduction in quality could occurr by attaching a 0.5 metre extension cable. Confused....its not just the sky q box by the way, the ps3 with an identical setup and extension cable portrays similar symptoms. Many thanks

Given that Sky and Sony both look worse with the extension cable, it's the extension cable that's at fault. Just buy slightly longer HDMI 2.1 cables instead.
