Component vs. HDMI for longer runs

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have two runs of about 70' and 50' to my panels from my direct tv hr20. My install guy recommends component but would not HDMI be a better choice given the cable size and digital transmission? Thanks

Yes.

Check this 50ft cable (<$55) and this 75ft cable (<$80). Longer runs would require equalizers (see 100ft cable ~$105).

I would imagine the reason your installer suggested the component cable option was those distances are well within the distance limitations of component cables.

Before deciding to go with and purchasing HDMI cables, perhaps read this thread:
