By chance today I discovered a loss of audio only can be caused by the HDMI being not securely seated. In this case, unseated by a mere 1/16".

While the mechanical failings of HDMI are legion, I'm not sure this qualifies as an failure.

Homes have burned down as a result of electrical plugs that weren't properly seated.

I recently had loss of video but still had audio. The solution was the same.

I would classify it as wear. For the high cost of this Monster M1000HD cable I would have hoped for better endurance. Monster will replace it for free but I am thinking of changing all those Monster HDMI's to Monoprice Premium 24 gauge high speed.

Yamaha on their receivers chose a vertical orientation of the HDMI jacks and the cables withe the heavier casings and fitting ends tend to slide out of the jacks while the lighter el-cheapos stay put.

Aside from a stupid jack orientation and vibration from sound how would wear enter the equation?

As silly as it may seem, taking the HDMI in and out many times over the past five years. Only excuse I can dream up.

I found a dust wand that slips under the receiver:) Saves having to undo and reconnect after each time we dust;)
