Looking for suggestions for a 15m HDMI to HDMI cable, to connect my Pana 46GT30 to my media cupboard, via the loft.
Is there a decent cable out there, or is Cat5/6 a better bet?
Look forward to your views
I'm using this That Cable lead (recommended to me elsewhere on the forum) and have to say I'm very impressed with the performance for the price.
This might be quite pricey at £60 .... the Neet® White Line - 15m - HDMI to HDMI Cable
This is a seriously fat cable ... its 24 awg!! I can't really recommend it yet as I bought the 10m version of this and have laid it under the floor as i am still mid-process of running all my AV cables at the momentm, but i have read great things and seems a sturdy cable.
I hope that helps.

... i forgot to mention CAT5/6. 15m is right on the limit of what i've read to be the maximum distance to run HDMI cables. On my two 15m runs, i've carefully run a budget HDMI cable to each in the hope that it'll work ok, but i have also laid 5 runs of CAT6 cable to each as back up. CAT5/6 is really cheap these days, so don't be shy with it, go daft!!
WireWorld make long HDMI cables, up to 20m.

The Ivuna cable from Ukhdmi was recommende to me by another forum user. I got a 15 metre one for 43 pounds and i think it looks great, although I have not compared it to any other 15 HDMI cable.
Interestingly, ThatCable doesn't advertise cables longer than 10m as 3D compliant. Better to check before installing.
