I was wondering what the longest HDMI cable run people have tried (and succeeded) when connecting their Mitsubishi HC1500 Projector. My current proposed setup calls for a 46' cable run connecting my Yamaha HTR-6080 receiver to my projector. The run would consist of a 6' cable, then a manual push button splitter, then a 30' cable, then a coupler, and a 10' cable.
Can I realistically expect this to work or should I be seriously reconsidering things? What's the longest cable you've been able to use with this projector?
IIRC, the original spec for HDMI was up to 15m. You can go longer with adapters that get a little pricey. You can even run it over cat5 with adapters, but it can get touchy. Generally, you want to minimize runs and directly connect components, without using any adapters or switches.
