Is a 50FT HDMI Cord reliable? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
So far all the feedback has been positive on their website so I might buy this cable.


DarkPhoenix: The way my internet is set up my XBox 360 has to be on the south end of my house and have a wireless connection. It's a bit confusing, but so far the options are use a 19" CRT and a Lawn chair or get a long HDMI cable and go back to my 42"HDTV haha. If you don't mind me asking, what exactly is a Cat5 cable? I've looked it up and so far it looks to me like its for networking? Sorry if I'm wrong.

Exactly. It'd be cheaper and easier to move your Xbox to the TV and run the Cat5 cable than to leave it and run the HDMI. Besides, how well does the controller work from that distance?

Cat5 or Cat6 is just your normal networking cable. They tend to be a lot cheaper then HDMI cables, can be run longer and are easier to conceal. If you are feeling handy, you could always try and run one from where ever your router is, assuming there is a safe way to run it.

Guess I never had to transfer audio over my 35ft, since its reciever to projector. However i still believe it would be fine.
Try it just for fun and see if you can lock onto DTS-MA or Dolby TrueHD. I couldn't and I have a very expensive preamp and a 10' shorter distance than you.

I'm sorry I should have posted this in the original post, but I have to have a wireless connection since I get my internet connecting through my HTC EVOs Wireless modem. My phone sits in the only spot where the connection is fast enough for gaming.

Aroc91: I've tested my controller and it seemed to connect fine even futher than 50Ft.


Also just to add, I do have a 50ft Ethernet cord I picked up from gamestop several years back, but like I said I have to have a wireless connection. Like I said my setup is confusing.
