Margin mugs: A bank paid how much for a 2m Ethernet cable? WTF!

Hang on.

I have a dual zone setup using a Denon receiver that allows me to interdependently choose which HDMI input I output to Zone 2; in my case the conservatory.

This setup (posted about sometime ago here) works perfectly well using a bog standard 12m HDMI cable from....

CPC.

I tried the all singing active version and the signal would not go through and used to break up. This runs through the wall behind my unit, along the garage wall, into my dining room (now under the flooring) and finally through another wall into the conservatory where it connects an unput inot my single zone receiver. I even have a length of CAT5 running parallel for similar reasons.

Absolutely no reason to spend silly money on these cables.
