So basically, I am running a 50 foot hdmi cable from my computer in one room down into the floor, into the crawlspace underneath my house and back up to my family room and into the t.v.
I'm already quite wary about using a cable that long but my T.V. is only 720p and I've heard it should be fine even at that distance...1080p is another story.
By computer is really good. I just custom built it so it could run as an HTPC. On my motherboard, I've got an optical out..
Now heres where I'm concerned the most.
Optical cables don't work well at all at very long distances...i.e. more than about 25 feet. What if I got a cheap little 3 foot optical to digital coaxial cable, plug in a long a** coaxial cable so it can run underneath my house and then plug that into my audio receiver directly if I'm in the mood for some surround sound action...
Anyways, I'm not worried about the HDMI end because it carries both video and audio and delivers it at around the same time (pretty much). I'm worried that If I want to use my receiver to get some surround sound theres going to be a delay....
P.S. Wow, that was extremely long winded. But thanks for any input that you can provide.
