It seems to me that a coax connects the Traveler to the Satellite box, NOT an HDMI. The HDMI cable connects the Satellite box to the TV!
Also, a HDMI cable, if ever defective, should be replaced, not repaired!!!!! The suggestion to buy a 2nd cable and cut off the end to splice to old cable is not practical. AND, most of the time, a HDMI cable only needs to be 3'-6' long so buying a short one to cut up to replace another short cable makes no sense.
PS- I described 2 types of cables in my first post. Even with that description, you still insist it's a HDMI????
