The cable seems solid, worked fine with the 6700 and it's that Amazon Mediabridge Ultra one we're all using basically.
I'm wondering though if that asinine port break-out box the 7500 uses might add to the cable's woes (10ft hdmi cable), worth a shot to swap it I guess.
Yup. That adds 6ft. 6ft + 10 ft = 16ft as the box isn't actively powered. For what it's worth, I have a no-name HDMI cable, but it's thick. It works flawlessly. Forget the ratings, buy the shortest cable with the fatest wire you can get.
> Why is everyone wanting these displays so much?! I get it... they're big. They can function as a monitor. Is that it?
Pretty much. The 4k (instead of 1080p which can be had for much less) res is mostly useful for combating aliasing artifacts in CG elements like fonts/UI. Otherwise it's a matter of bragging rights which has social value.
1080P res is mostly useful for combating aliasing artifacts. My 720P Xbox graphics is just as good as the PS4. Otherwise, it's a matter of bragging rights which has social value.
It's OK to be envious. However, jealousy is a sickness. I need to figure out the ignore feature.
