    Needed: Correct HDMI wires (2.2)

    I am having a frustrating problem with HDMI wires that are going from my Marantz 7011 to my 4k LG TV.

    When I did not get an image, I called Marantz tech support and they said, correctly, that I needed HDMI 2.2 wires and it was best if they were certified.

    None on Amazon that I saw claimed to be certified, although I bought four, who had good responses, and two worked and two didnít.

    Can anyone recommend, and perhaps point to on Amazon, wires that are good and perhaps certified. I will need one meter and two meter ones.

    Thanks!

    I seem to recall David playing the cable game when he installed his 4K player. I'm sure he will chime in.

    However, it's sad that a regular cable won't work at one meter.

    You might try "monoprice.com" for your cable and connector needs. My last HT upgrade required that I replace many of my connectors and cables, especially the receiver to TV HDMI cable vs. my old component cable connection. Monoprice has a pretty good selection of HDMI cables in various lengths, wire thickness, quality levels and price ranges. Good luck!

    Barry, how long of lengths do you need? 4K signals are very troubling for HDMI cables, especially at longer distances. These Monoprice cables should work:

    They go up to 25 feet and I've tested them and they do work.
