-- Some time ago, an AVS member asked me about similar cables. I looked them up, and they are guilty of false advertising. Those cables just won't work, and I'm not sure if Vanco will accept returns. A data speed of 10.2 Gbps is nowhere near fast enough for 1080p video.
You best bet (for any cable over 25' - the maximum specified for HDMI 1.3) would be those Blue Jeans cables. Before you install the cable, be sure to hook it up first to verify that it does work (Blue Jeans will accept returns). You don't want to go through the hassle of installing it just to find out that it's just too long to work. You should also note that BJC also states that only "Category 1 cables are guaranteed to work for 50'". The rating for Category 2 is only 25', maximum. The fastest speed, required by xv color and high speed 1080p video, is Catagory 2 cable (at least from a testing and guarantee standpoint). That doesn't mean a Category 1 cable won't work, it's just that it may not.
Because those heavy duty cable are very stiff, you will have to be very careful when using them. They won't bend sharply, and cable stress on the connectors could damage the HDMI connectors on your equipment (AVR & projector).
You might want to check out the "HDMI Port Savers" from monoprice (http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
). They will reduce the stress on your equipment connectors (you need one on each end) when using heavy duty cables.
BuffaloJim is right. Getting a 50' HDMI 1.3 cable to work is going to be tricky. I seriously doubt you will be able to do xv color with that length (and there are no Blu-Ray discs that support that either).
For 50' lengths, you may need to use a HDMI booster. Monoprice sells them, but you need to be careful which one you get. Gefen sells HDMI boosters too, but for a lot higher price.Jeffcom
