Absolutely, but remember just if you are running 1080p/24 then you are using about half the bandwidth that HDMI could run with. So, that same cable when pushed beyond 1080p/60 (such as UHD/4K) may not work anymore. With any HDMI cable, the higher the bandwidth, the shorter you can go with no bit errors.
That's why your 50' cable works. It's a really good Standard Speed cable that works beyond 720p/1080i but how far beyond we don't know. A High Speed cable is guaranteed to work for anything planned for HDMI (at least until HDMI 2 comes out some year) but of course is not available at 50' as a passive cable.
