I'm not sure if this is the right section to ask but I was wondering if anyone has tried running say a 40 ft hdmi cable from their pc to the living room receiver for gaming? I have a read that hdmi cables at long distances have trouble sending 1080p content cleanly or even at all and was wondering if games would apply to it aswell. For example, running skyrim at 1080p on the gaming pc connected by the HDMi cable to the receiver and then to the HDTV. I would use an xbox 360 controller as my gamepad. Everything works, but I'm not sure if the signal would reach the HDTV.
I have a Gigabyte 7870 OC so I know it can render games at 1080p at high settings.
