So I got a "High-Speed" HDMI extension cable from Amazon and when I try to use it with my Rift, the visuals cut in and out, or flicker in different colors. I went to my local PC parts store to get another HDMI "2.0" extension cable and get absolutely no picture when I use it. With either cable the Oculus devices tab seems to recognize when the headset is connected and when it isn't, but the visuals never work right. The headset works just fine when plugged directly into my computer.
Are there different grades/types of HDMI cable and I need a certain type, or did I just manage to get two bad cables in a row?
