I'm not trying to be harsh. But, having inserted hundreds of different HDMI cables, into hundreds of different HDMI ports, on at least dozens of different devices, I have never once heard a "click". Given the fragility of HDMI ports, I'd hate for somebody to keep pushing until they hear a click, or start wiggling while pushing, trying to get a click. They may not be too happy when they finally hear a click.
The only exception is the special 2" dongle for chromecasts. That has an additional lip, no other HDMI cable, or extension has, that can make a sound resembling a click when you insert the chromecast into it.
If I'm missing out on some sort of new, improved, HDMI cable, that makes a positive click, when inserted, and prevents it from moving around when inserted, or pulling back out, I want some. Even my HDMI 1.4 ports, with HDMI 1.4 cables, don't click, and they are new.
The only Roamio connector I can find that clicks, is the network cable. All the rest just slide in, and bottom-out (or screw in).
If I'm wrong, I'll take the flogging. I'm thinking back through Premieres, and TiVo HDs, and don't recall any of them having anything other than a RJ-45 or RJ-11 jack, that clicked. Same goes for many TVs, streaming devices, HDMI switches, DVD & BD players... I miss connections that clicked. Even the clicking action of quality cablecard slots has been taken away, like many memory card readers, which used to have clicking action...
