It did cost a premium price but it works like it should! So for anyone that is in the same situation that I was in, I would totally reccomend the ATEN HDMI Extender VE800, just remember to try out the different EQ settings till it works. Direct mode and Extended mode works just as it should and I am so excited to be back!
Lots of good info in that thread, and seems even using oculus cable was causing some guy an issue:

Very interesting indeed
Are you still using the stock HDMI cable at the end, or have you routed a custom HDMI all the way to the HMD? Only adding extensions to the default cable has given me issues similar to yours, but I'm running with a 1m extension now to get the cable box on my desk and that works just fine.

I am indeed using the original cable! Because of the way the original cable is built (Very thin and fragile), the signal didnt quite reach the headset itself since the cable was so thin. But even though that I replaced the cable, it would still be unplayable.
My current setup is kinda messy right now, I tried to make it clean and hide the stuff, but atleast it works with everything original. (All those 3 cables that are together are the original DK2 cables with USB, HDMI and Sync.

Wuh... there are actually three cables in the combined cord? O.o I thought the sync was somehow baked into the USB as well, only USB and HDMI enter the headset! Does two of the cables terminate in a single USB plug? I realize I have not seen the thing picked apart
just figured it was the two...
Edit: Oh, right, those cables come out of the cable box... doh! It's late here, I'm tired xD

ThinkLogical has fiber optic HDMI/DVI extenders that are expensive but work great. For commercial/professional use, they would also be a good choice.
The stories I could tell back in the day at IBM of cable runs on token ring networks! LOL! I vividly recall pat everhart calling us in for a meeting because so many clients were complaining that ethernet solutions with just a few computers were faster than the token ring solutions - our internal tests verified with just a few computers the collissions were not great enough to be better than ethernet, token ring only really helped with many computers. http://www.networkworld.com/article/228 ... -ring.html
We spent MORE DILBERT BOSS MEETINGS going through how we could not talk about this, and deny this to our clients, yada yada yada, what a waste of time, I spent 80% of my time in meetings at IBM that achieved NOTHING! Wanted to get back to my terminal and play minesweeper! LOL!
