    HDMI Extender Advice needed ASAP !! Thanks

    Thanks John - the electrician tried getting the head of the hdmi through the tubing but it wouldn't fit.

    Looking for recommendations for a 50' HDMI cable

    Brian - the extender looks like a great alternative. FYI - I am putting all my a/v gear and source devices in a closet so there will be no direct view of it from my living room. I have a couple questions if you don't mind. 1. if all my source devices are plugged into my a/v pre-amp would i...
