I can do 20ft but it's a little tight. I guess I'm better doing the MP CP cable rather than the MP Active.

My very simplistic suggestion is first unplug then replug in the hdmi cable. Does that correct the problem at that moment? Also, I've had two issues with my 788 and both were solved with a reset.
