Getting pretty tired of lugging my HTPC back and forth from my desktop setup to my theater....there has to be a way to make this work. I'm willing to run whatever cables I have to.
Right now I've got a desktop setup with a 3D monitor connected via dual link DVI, and USB peripherals. Audio is analog stereo.
On the other setup I've got a 3D plasma that's connected to a receiver, both audio and video feed over HDMI. In the theater I've got a few wireless peripherals, such as a handheld keyboard and a 360 controller, that need to be within range.
I've currently got a hardwired gigabit ethernet connection running between the rooms, but I'm pretty sure that's not even enough for the HDMI.
So....anyone that's got something similar know of a good way to go about this?
I'm thinking that having the HDMI and DVI connected at the same time will cause issues, because it'll assume it's a multi monitor setup - and the displays have such radically different requirements that it'll just be asking for trouble. Same with the HDMI/analog audio....so I'm willing to connect/disconnect cables as necessary.
The main issue is the ~100ft HDMI and USB cable runs. Anyone ever run those cables that far? I'm assuming I'll need some sort of signal booster? It needs to be able to flawlessly carry 1080p/60 or 720p/60/3D, alongside 7.1 PCM.
