Is their that much difference for a 42"? (non HDBaseT)
42" TV? It's not the size of the TV, since you're running 1080P on anything. It's the distance from the source to the TV. For 100' of run, you're probably not going to be happy with the non-HDBaseT solutions. They're basically hacks that attempt to use multiple Cat6 cables to extend the native HDMI cable. Subject to line loss and interference. HDBaseT is actually a processor designed to send full HDMI signals over a single twisted pair with error checking and correction.

One last question (possibly) about HDbaseT. Is there any difference in the regular HDbaseT and the HDbaseT Lite stuff, other than the distance? My longest run is about 100 feet.

which is?
Which is not an HDBaseT issue, but rather a general HDMI distribution issue - and only a problem if you're using a matrix or a splitter to serve multiple rooms. Extenders have no such issue. Search for "HDMI common denominator" for a ton of threads - it's due to the mixing of audio/video capabilities of multiple display locations with a single HDMI-connected source.

I have a question regarding: what if all TV are dd capable?
You'll get audio that is the highest-quality common denominator among the displays. If every display location (TV or TV+AVR) supports DD5.1, you'll get that.
