Consumer Warning: Competing Category, Coax and Bulk Speaker Wire Products Don’t Hold Up to Spec Testing


failed-coax

Metra Home Theater Group can legitimately advertise that when it comes to our category, coax and bulk speaker wire, our brands meet or exceed specifications. How do we know this? We perform rigorous 3rd party testing on our bulk wires to ensure that once sealed inside walls, integrators won’t have an issue with our products. While other competitors state that they’ll “replace any wire that doesn’t work”, ripping out wires from a wall isn’t always an option for integrators.

Solving DirecTV Issues with Active and Passive HDMI Cables

Monday, April 17, 2017 1:03:39 PM America/New_York

DirecTV Issues with HDMI Cables

The technical support team at Metra Home Theater Group is getting more and more calls about issues with DirecTV receivers and their HDMI cables. This applies to active HDMI cables and longer passive HDMI cables. In each case that we have heard about, the system had been working fine (sometimes even for years), until something within the last 90 days occurred which caused it to fail. When the failure occurs, the TV displays the dreaded HDCP incompatibility message on the screen.

Integrators saw this same compatibility warning last summer, which you may remember from when we covered the good and bad news about the HDCP Pro 2.2 rollout on our Home Tech Tips Blog. That article included information on how the automatic update feature would affect custom integrators. While the DirecTV issue is an entirely new problem that we’ve been trying to diagnose, we think we’ve figured it out.

But first, let’s review some important background information on HDMI.
