This is not CoreELEC specific. But using a HDMI cable in “good quality” is important I think.
While trying to solve problems with my devices I asked myself about the influence of the HDMI cable. There are often threads like “at least changing the cable solved my problems with audio/video/cec issues”.
But - changing to what?
Just to make a clear statement - I am not a promoter or hidden reseller of something.
In the meantime I have bought new cables. But I still don´t know if I have quality ones or crap.
I´ve spended hours to read user ratings on Amazon. A lot of cables there claim to be ok. for the newest HDMI Standards and High bandwith. But no matter if cheap or expensive - nearly every cable had ratings from 5 Stars to crap. And I saw funny discussions in the net about “this cable has a better Picture/Audio quality than that” although its based on digital signals.
Is there a objective way to test the quality of a HDMI cable ?
Does a piece of Software exist for testing ?
Are there cables known as “good” for a reasonable price ?
edit : another important thing for me is to change the power adapter. Nearly all adapters I´ve got with the chinese devices were crap. Take an old medium wave radio receiver near them and you can hear the problem…
