I've got a situation that if wired as desired I would need a 40' to 50' run of HDMI cable from the DirecTV STB to the TV. I've been told by installation "experts" that runs of that length are hit or miss using HDMI but when I check out site like Mono Price or Blue Jeans Cable I see plenty of HDMI cable at lengths up to 100'.
If a 40' run is so hit or miss why are reputable sites selling cable that long or longer without a disclaimer? I suspect that the truth lies somewhere in between what I was told by the install pros and what the sellers claim.
So in light of all of this I now turn to the MR gang for your opinions. If I proceed with plan "A" and utilize a 40' to 50' HDMI cable (good quality) how likely, if at all, is it that I will experience some sort of signal degradation or outright fail?
Thanks in advance....
