According to HDMI.org the maximum acceptable length is 10m without an active repeater. It does add that the equipment at either end as well as the quality of the cable factors in.

The 40' length you linked would be pushing it, although I don't know what developments have been made in cable technology since this was published.

Hope this helps,

Rich

Edit: I will add that cable quality can make a big difference. I've read a lot around here that a cable is a cable, and there's no difference between a $10 one and a $100 one. When I purchased my 46" TV I tried hooking up my BR player to it using an Amazon Basics HDMI cable that worked great with my computers. It did nothing. I ended up getting an HDMI 1.4 cable that set me back about $45. It works great now.

Have yet to get one, but quality is still great.

Found these also, if in-wall is not what you want.
