I always heard that there is no advantage to buying high dollar HDMI cables because the average ones work just as well.
that is absolutely not true. especially when using a 3d tv. as for something that long im not quite sure

You might want to read here:

or here:

etc...
I can't find anything on longer ones though.

I have a couple of 3d TV...seems you can hardly buy a decent TV now that isn't
However, we have never watched anything 3d on them, and I'm pretty sure we never will.

Most people say that normal HDMI cable should be kept under 20-25 feet or else you risk major signal degradation. I have successfully run Phoenix with a 25 ft. HDMI cable to my 70" screen. Talk about realistic simming but that's off topic.

Anyway, more than 25 ft. I would recommend special HDMI cables. Look here on Monoprice. With this "Redmere" technology they claim you can go up to 65 ft. and still get full speed. It will cost you though!

Well, all I can say is it's AWESOME! It allows me to stand, like in the field, and since I'm 5 ft from the 70" screen, it is SUPER realistic.

One thing I haven't tried yet is to pipe the sound through my A/V receiver instead of the speakers on the flat screen.

Shoot, one of the very first things I ever did was buy the sim card almost 3 years ago. Then plugged the system into my large flatscreen. I just couldn't see the heli on my 19" computer screen at all. One of the guys I fly with uses on on his 92". That is just awesome!

I also have it tied into my Yamaha/Klipsch surround sound.

The thunderbolt cable has spec for fiber-optic so I looked for a similar hdmi solution, how far do you want to go?

Why do I need 3d speed...does RF run in 3d?
I'm just using it on a cheap little 15" laptop so far.

Heck, those aren't that expensive, especially compared to the optical ones
Maybe I should just buy a new laptop with an HDMI port then I could use a 15' or 20' easily to the big screen. Probably wouldn't cost that much more than buying all of the stuff and doing all of the hookup to the desktop in the other room.

What about that blue internet cable that looks like a phone plug?

What's it called and how long can it be?

I'd like to run a hard line to my bedroom....About 50-60 feet.

Cat5 utp can run up to 90 to 100 (300/ft) meters without a repeater. 50-60 feet no sweat. I have longer runs than that run under the house from one end to the patch panel about 100 feet.
