Cabernet 50ft HDMI Cable with RedMere Technology

Pros: Cheaper and better than HDBaseT technology. Future-proofed at 18Gbps for 4K UHD. Less parts to install than HDBaseT kit. 100% plug and play.

Cons: None.

This cable rocks!!! I bought this 50ft cable to replace Monoprice's own HDBaseT Extender kit (10225) that doesn't even spit a picture! I thought I would also have to buy an amplified splitter like Monoprice's 7522 because of my cheap Chinese TV in the basement but this Cabernet cable boosted the signal just fine connected to the TV, using the same generic Chinese splitter I have in the living room! No fiddling! No hassle! No sparkles in the picture! Really plug and play! I just love RedMere technology! This beats HDBaseT technology anytime! And it's cheaper too! Don't hesitate, buy it!

Cabernet Series Active High Speed HDMI® Cable with RedMere® Technology, 50ft

Pros: Works for the 50' run.

Cons: Didn't get it sooner!!!!!

I have the Cabernet Series Active High Speed HDMI® Cable with RedMere® Technology, 50ft so I don't know if it's just a naming change or if my cable is an older version. Anyway, I got this because I wanted to connect my desktop computer to my Onkyo 805 receiver that's in another room. This is the second receiver connected to my desktop, upstairs I have an Integra 50.4 and it's connected to the desktop's HDMI out by a HDMI® Extender using Cat5e/CAT6 cable and it worked flawlessly. Since I wanted the basement receiver, (Onkyo 805), connected I thought I'd try this HDMI cable. I talked to a monoprice rep & he said I could have an issue because the cable is directional & my receiver has auto return. Since I don't use this feature & I can disable the audio out via HDMI on the receiver I decided to give it a shot. Well, it worked. I'm using the dvi out with a dvi to HDMI female adapter & since my Invidia card supports audio through the dvi out along with video I am in business.
My picture is flawless & I have the audio set at 192. 24bit and it's working fine, (the Onkyo can only output this at stereo but the Integra can 7.1 it). I also ran a 35ft usb cable upstairs into the stereo cabinet, added a usb hup, wireless keyboard & a external dvd burner. I can sit on the sofa , pull up my desktop on the 60'' plasma, surf the web, burn dvd's stream Kodi on a dumb tv... Ok, I, but this cable is perfect for long HDMI runs. Get it, you won't be disappointed.

50 ft HDMI

Pros: Advice online was that long HDMI runs needed some kind of "boost" to the signal. Redmere cables do that. Since I had to fish the wires thru walls I can't say if a non-active HDMI would have worked, but I can say that this 50' Redmere cable gives a great picture and the price was right.

Cons: None. Install note. This had to go up/down, around several corners and feed through a wall. I measured the other side of the wall, thought I accounted for all the twists, turns and up/down and thought 40' would easily do it. Good thing I got a 50' cable because I have only 1-2 feet left over. Just saying be generous in your estimates!

Works perfectly. Quality appearance. Great price. On-time delivery.
