Oops %#*@ typo :) , I mean to say the the cable is hardly repairable . And good luck with finding those 2 cable equalizer chips. So the trick is buying the cheap short plain vanilla cable with the Oculink end from HP and export the able equalizer chips to the extender cables, which can be replace in ta possible future failure ( 10 CAD each).
This combo cable is the weakest link. That explains why you can buy a headset (without anything else) for 22 S from ebay( I got one as a backup). As the good iFix showing if you open the Oculink male end, you will realize it is practically repairable.
Here is the trick:
Buy the short cable from HP. HP PART NO: L04717-001
Comes around 41 CAD (38+ TAX =FS). I believe it's a plain cable without chips, that's exactly what we want.
Buy two active USB 3 and HDMI 2.0 extension cables from Amazon 10 CAD each. You have to be careful with USB 3 extension cable- which deliver the 0.9 A power to the headset display. Not all USB 3 works.
I'll give you mine,which is working,
10 feet HDMI 2 extension- HAGIBISTECH
10 feet USB 3 active extension- Cable Matters
Each is 10 CAD. Buy 2 USB 3 as it may have a chip making it more susceptible to failure. If it does, use the other. Good Luck
