Re: V6 Box in the garden

If the TV is connected by HDMI, you will find that 20m is probably too far for standard cables and HD pictures probably won't carry. You can get active (amplified) cables but they are more expensive

Some details here:

20m is way longer then the specs support for HDMI let alone 4k. It might work but you'd be risking it not working. Try amazon or ebay but get some good ones

You'll find 12m HDMI cables on Amazon.

Of course, you could forget about the wired option & splash out on one of these:

Re: V6 Box in the garden

the V6 dosn't have scart so you'll need a HDMI splitter as well
