What do you mean by "standard HDMI cable"? There really is only one kind of HDMI cable to use now and that is a High Speed HDMI cable. 30' is getting long so an active High Speed HDMI cable may help but yeah, if you're not getting sparkles and drop outs as mentioned above then it probably isn't the cable.
At 30' is your installation in-wall? If so, are you using a conduit to run your cable in? If not, it could be an installation issue (too sharp of a bend radius for example). Did you test the cable before installation by laying it out on the floor?
I never trust an atom, they make up everything.
