Hi all

Just set up a projector for my friend and we have plugged in his Xbox / ps3 with a 15 m hdmi cable but it don't work, we just get no signal / not supported yet works fine with a shorter cable. The long cable works with sky / Blu ray player

Any ideas?

Cheers

Marc

I put a 10m hdmi cable from my sons pc and xbox into his samsung tv both work well. The cable only cost 17 but is good quality.

Have you tried the long cable connected to something else? It may just be a duff cable.

You may just need a better quality cable, the cable quality is much more critical over the longer distances, yes if it works okay then there is no benefit from a better one but it does have to work.

While I agree no company should sell a 15m cable that doesn't work as expected, it's against the Sales of Goods Act 1979.
