Title says it all. I need to run a 50ft high speed cord from my media closet PS3 to my Samsung 3dTV as my receiver is only 1.3 passthrough, and then an optical cord to my ps3 for sound. Monoprice deosnt make such a cable so can I buy 2 of these http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2 and then use a coupler or a repeater? If I understand right a 1.3 cord will not pass HD and 3D. Would like to order something ASAP. Anyone know what should work?

Q. How do I run HDMI cables longer than 10 meters?

There are many HDMI Adopters working on HDMI solutions that extend a cable's effective distance from the typical 10 meter range to much longer lengths. These companies manufacture a variety of solutions that include active cables (active electronics built into cables that boost and extend the cable's signal), repeaters, amplifiers as well as CAT5/6 and fiber solutions.


Try monoprice or amazon.

The monoprice 22awg & 24awg cables should be sufficient. My bet is that they are not rated "high speed" only as Monoprice has not dumped the money into certifying them; not because they are incapable of passing the signal properly. And, as Augerhandle pointed out, if they are not up to the task then you can try a passive extender near the display or an active-extender anywhere is the display chain (though, again, preferrably near the display.)
