    Stress Relief

    I was having a problem with my HDMI output cutting out and audio crackle from my AJA ioExpress box and Protools Mbox. If I lifted up or jiggled on the cable they would reconnect. To remedy the problem I used left over foam blocks from customizing equipment cases. The blocks are 2" and have grooves cut in. Now the connections are fine because the cable heads are level to the device & stress free.
