Not looking for a argument, just curious. You don't endorse Monoprice.com cable which seems to be the favorite for most on this site. Why not and what brand cable would you endorse?John Williams said:Well, that's a generic Chinese cable using 34awg wire. I would be surprised if that cable at 50 feet could pass 1080i. The problem is a cable like this, at that length should have never been manufactured at all... it simply will not work for most things.
You need to buy a new "proper" cable. Even a Monoprice.com cable would be an improvement over this - and I don't endorse Monoprice.
We still don't know what model Samsung TV it is. That would tell us what resolutions it can accept. If it's a small older model Samsung, it might not even accept a 1080p input (1080i might be the highest).
