Question which is the best and most reliable active display port 1.4 to hdmi 2.0 adapter?

want to build a HTPC with an intel i3 10th gen.

it seems nearly all boards have dp 1.4 and hdmi 1.4. obviously i need hdmi 2.0 for 4k hdr10.

so i thought maybe use an active dp to hdmi adapter, as some boards with hdmi 2.0 seem to use an adapter on the motherboard anyway.

trouble is this pc will be on for days sometimes, but the tv its connected to will be off for most of that time, and im seeing even the plugable brand one failing in some reviews on amazon.

was looking at the plugable one, but some reviews say it fails with snow onscreen.

i also discovered some motherboards are using the same chip to do the dp to hdmi. so im wondering how they make sure they dont fail?
