Its confirmed.
HDMI settings on the Zappiti set to AUTO with HDMI CEC Enabled and Disabled .....the fiber HDMI could not detect it...."No signal"

However, AppleTV 4K and Zidoo works just fine

Anyone using 15m hdmi cable for your Zapitti?
I find the Zap very sensitive to the type of hdmi cables used.
Doesn't work with the Moshou and now using another 4k hdmi cable and the PJ cannot detect it
But both hdmi cables no problem on Apple TV

Let me know which 15m hdmi cable is compatible with the Z

Thanks

Thanks Audio
This brand beyond my budget
I will isolate problem by using the zidoo using the 15m cables that I have on hand
If still cannot then I will consider the FiBBR

Any other budget friendly brands to recommend?

The Moshou fiber hdmi doesnt work on the Zap too

It is frustrating.   Even a $2,000 15M Wireworld HDMI is not quite as reliable as the FIBBR, in my experience.

I recently heard some HDMI chatter from some manufacturing expert that wired metal HDMI is superior to optical HDMI.  The issue is the double conversion from electrical signal to optical and back to electrical again occurring at both ends.   But damn, no point bragging about colour or picture fidelity when you keep experiencing frequent blackouts and unaccountable handshakings while you watch your media.

There is no shortcut.  I started optical HDMI with another brand and by far, the FIBBR is still the most secure.  With the amount of long HDMI cables, I have tried / bought, the FIBBR is the real bargain.

Really frustrating for such HDMI cabling sync issue.
Am happy we have forum sharing here among bros.

Whom test it out with the right brand of projector or right model media player and tested working before i commit to my fibre HDMI new cable purchase too.

Cheers.

Agree.
The Zap is a finicky player when it comes to using the right hdmi cable

I have replaced the Zappitti with the Zidoo UHD2000.  No issue....just disconnect and plug the new unit in.  No issue at all.

I’m using this brand of optical fibre hdmi cable as well. Mine is 15m. Very reliable signal.

On the zappiti support site, they warned that some hi-end HDMI and Optic HDMI cables are not compatible with their media player

So, it looks like the FIBBR cable is the safest bet
