Outdoor HDMI Cable Recommendation

I'm going to be running an HDMI line about 50-60 feet outdoors, most of it protected from direct weather (will be under siding). The end will terminate where I'm going to plug it into a TV that will be brought in and out as we use it.

I'm looking at a 75 foot commercial in-wall cable from Monoprice, anything better out there, or any better ideas?

Source - HD or 4K UHD?

External Grade CAT6 and use HDBT Extenders is our usual solution.

Any issues with the extended boxes being outside, or should I just rig up the TV with the box attached and leave the CAT-6 outside?

Thanks, Joe.

On a permanent install we would normally put the RX within a weather proof housing - for what you describe as long as during the operation periods you are not expecting moisture to be an issue then Velcro or Cable Tie the RX to the TV and simply disconnect the CAT cable when removing the TV/RX.

Our RX are PoC so no additional PSU at the TV and also provide an IR return path to the Source - though bright sunlight could be an issue for IR!

Just wondering what Joe's answer would have been if the cable was for 4K content?

HDBT can cover you for some 4K UHD format signals - likewise UHD over LAN is a similar configuration.

Fibre is an option - though external grade cable is less common.
