I have the Roku Ultra 4800R (2020) and I'm really happy with it.
I wonder if it's okay to substitute my own HDMI cable for the one that came with my Roku. I'm only asking because all my home theater cables are black, and it would be easier to distinguish among them if they were different colors. Also, the in-box HDMI cable is 5 feet long, which is 2 feet longer than I really need, and less spaghetti behind the TV is better.
If it's okay to supply my own cable, what are the important technical specifications that my replacement HDMI cable needs to have?
None of my Rokus (and I have a ton) have ever come with an HDMI cable, so I've always used my own and whenever possible I get them at the dollar store. Unless you have a 4k TV and are watching 4k content pretty much any cable should work. Try your own cable and if you have problems you can always go back to the one supplied.
