Hi all.
I have to connect an HTPC to a Yamaha RX-A3080, in order to view my movies.
Because HTPC it is 20 meters away from Yamaha RX-A3080, how many ways you know I can use?
Thanks in advanced.

The distance is why an Active cable is suggested, normal HDMI cables are good for only 5-10m or so.

You've got four solutions:

Standard HDMI


Active HDMI as suggested by @Peter Apruzzese


HDMI by CAT



Use a streaming device (AppleTV, Roku, Nvidia Shield) with wifi running HTPC client app to connect to an HTPC server app, and not run any wiring.
