Is a 50FT HDMI Cord reliable?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I need to connect my XBox 360 to my 42" HDTV, the only problem is that my XBox 360 is 50ft away from my TV because it has to be in the opposite end of my house for a internet connection. Would it be possible to have a 50ft HDMI cord from my 360 to my TV like that?

I've just looked around at different cords. What do you all suggest?

The cable should work fine. Just remember that these cables tend to be over a cm in diameter so be sure to plan for a stiff cable when routing.

Another idea would be to purchase a 50ft Cat5 cable and move the Xbox. Would be a bit cheaper.

Yep was going to recommend monoprice. I use their 35ft one in my theater room. Its the size of a garden hose but never given me any troubles.

You'll probably be okay, but there's no way it would carry 1080p with multichannel lossless. Lots of people will tell you that it can, but it can't For what it's worth, I had to replace a 20' monoprice that didn't have the bandwidth for multichannel HDaudio with 1080p, but you're probably only needing DTS,DD,etc.

Just make sure it is a stiff thick cable. At 24 AWG that shouldn't be a problem. You might have SLIGHT distortion since it is 50 ft long, but shouldn't be too bad.

Or use a HDMI extender kit. Basically 2 little boxes, that use Cat6 between them to carry the signal. But, if your gonna do that, might as well just get the longer cat cable and move your Xbox. Could also check out using a Powerline kit to move your Xbox so you dont have to route a long ethernet cable.

Ya no lossless codecs from an xbox.

Guess I never had to transfer audio over my 35ft, since its reciever to projector. However i still believe it would be fine.
