Extension cords

Hi,
Recently bought these two cables (3m/10ft) to extend my Rift setup but unfortunatly I encountered an issue. Sometimes when I play Rifts screen goes randomly black. You can still hear sound but display goes black for 1-2s and than it switches back on. It happens randomly, Sometimes I can do 2-3 songs in Beat Saber, and sometimes it goes black 2 times in one song. My guess is that there is a connectivity issue with hdmi cable. Do you have any recommendations what to do or maybe what cable should I buy? These two cables amazon suggested based on my previous purcheses and other users :blush: I would really appreciate your help.

    I purchased the recommended 6' extension cords for USB3 and the DisplayPort, but could not get them to work....of course, nothing else much worked with the Rift S that I recently sent back to the store.  Hopefully the new replacement I'll have on Monday will be different.   With all the bad reviews all over the Web with the Rift S not working correctly though, I'm not going to hold my breath, but I'm keeping the hope alive.
