Hello Everyone,

This is my first post so I am sorry if this is the wrong area. I have 4 questions that I need help with, the first 2 are the most important. I just bought a Sony VPL-VW50 Projector.

My first question is: I am going to need a 40-45 ft HDMI cable to bring video to the Projector. Is there a place or website anyone would suggest to buy from that has Quality HDMI?

2nd Q: Is there quality issues with HDMI cables or is one better then the other?

3rd Q: Do you think I will lose quailty of picture of the 40 Ft distance of the HDMI Cable?

4th Q : I just ordered a Pioneer Elite VSX-84TXSi, Is this the best option for the 1,000-1500 price range? I got the amp new for 1050.00. Let me know if you think there is something way better for the money.

Hello

Some of these signals are only rated to seven feet for DVI and maybe HDMI, beyond that length a fiber optic or other amplified cable may be required.

This one is a slam dunk...monoprice.com is the best way to go. They fully test the cables to certain specs, so the length of cable is irrelevant. The cables are good value, secrets did a review of them.

Thanks again for all the help. Well.........Monoprice has 2 different 50 ft HDMI cables 1 is a in wall cabel in copper, and the other is a normal cable in gold. The Gold cable is backordered for another week which might be a problem for my move in.

I am building a new house that will be done on the 26th of this month. In the wall I ran a plumbing PVC pipe all the way from the projector to the Amp so i can change out the tech. Do I need the inwall wire? Or is the PVC shielding enough.

Also is gold much better the copper for connection? I would really like to order the copper one so i can have opening night with my sony pearl! But on the other hand I want the best connection possible......Let me know your thoughts!
