- In my experience this is where things get fuzzy. I had tried both a 12 ft. and 15ft. run directly to TV no issues. Once I added AVR into the chain things became more problematic... 15ft + 12ft run resulted in signal drops. 15ft + 5ft. is running without issues. There definitely seems to be a point where total cabling length becomes an issue.
- Not sure anyone is going to be able to easily answer this.. depends on what is behind wall, thickness of cable, how much it has to bend, etc. Need to make sure connectors are properly protected when trying to do this, and be darn sure however you attach them together doesn't come apart. I usually first run high strength fishing line or "fish tape" rather then trying to pull one cable with the other, YMMV.
Interesting feedback regarding cable length. I usually run 15ft in-wall to be safe but I could get away with a 10ft cable. I am going to have a PS4->receiver->tv and a appletv->darbee->receiver->tv and I definitely do not want to deal with any signal drop issues.
