Mono price Redmere 30 and 40 foot. Prefect, never once a drop or sparlly or any other cable related issue as of 1 year now.

But I use Cmple 28 AWG HDMI

No offense, but discussing the brand of an HDMI cable is the most useless thing ever.

Yup. Digital so it doesn't matter. I usually get $1 cables from eBay.

Ive heard of redmere for thin cables with the chip to push the data. Now I seen a sony slim cable. Its really thin. Im not sure if it has a chip in it. Is it ppssible for a thin cable without the chip to push all the data correctly?

Monoprice cables all'round, + a 30' Redmere to the PJ... no complaints whatsoever...

Extron's longest super thin HDMI cable that is passive is only available up to 2m in length, for what that's worth.

Pure marketing b.s. Plain and simple. Any HDMI cable that comes with a certificate of compliance for the length you buy will work just fine. Presently, 25' is the maximum length that can be certified for passive high speed hdmi. Thicker gauge wire can be used just fine for longer lengths, or if your runs are under 25', you can probably get away with a smaller gauge wire if you need the flexibility and less strain on the connector end. If you need an active cable, Redmere works great.

I use to use those too but they are so heavy and rigid they started to break my HDMI inputs on my AVR's
