I wanted to extend my PiCam distance from my RPI3B, and purchased a CSI-to-HDMI module ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XDNBM63/re ... UTF8&psc=1 ) and a long HDMI cable ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009A ... UTF8&psc=1 ), but when viewing the PiCam output, it was a magenta screen, with ghost-like movement, unrelated to where the camera was aimed. After swapping out various components, it ended up being the HDMI cable. Another HDMI cable that I had handy, worked just fine, with a perfect image. The cable that worked, isn't anything special, that I'm aware of, but it's not very long, and too bulky and inflexible to go ahead and just use it. Was the particular cable I bought too long? Is there a max length (I haven't found one for this use)? Is there some particular spec for HDMI that I should look for when I buy a new one, that will work with my PiCam? I've had similar issues between computers and monitors, where one HDMI would work, and another wouldn't.
Thanks in advance!
