Noticed something strange today using an "approved" 3rd 6 metre party tour-grade ethernet-cable;
if i boot my KPA with remote attached the screen is nice and bright with a screen brightness set to a value of "10,000"
However, if i plug the remote in after the KPA has booted the remote brightness is considerably less.
I can crank the brightness-setting up to max and it is still not as bright as the mid-brightness setting available when booting with remote attached.
As part of the remote boot-up process, you should notice during the first few seconds the remote brightness increases from dim to max brightness over a short period of time before going off (this is normal) then, shortly after, coming back on and entering normal/running conditions
With the "rogue" ethernet cable this dim-to-bright process lasts about half the duration.
As an experiment, I used a bog-standard 3 metre computer ethernet cable and it worked fine, so it appears that the cable-length may be a factor.
Any other users have any tips or experience regarding cable types and lengths?
