Well, my sister, husband, and 2 kids are in the process of somewhat renovating their house they just signed papers on today(wednesday) and are looking to install an LCD over the fireplace. However, where they want to put all the equipment and cable box will need cables to be about 35-40 feet in length since they will run down into the basement, over to the other side of the room and up through the floor.
Now the dilemma, is it possible to get cables this long, and what kind of sacrifices in PQ is she looking at because of such long cables? Running it through the wall/ceiling is not an option since neither will be torn down.
On top of helping renovate the kitchen and bathrooms they want me to do the installation since they like how mine looks/sounds so I figured I'd ask the forum experts their opinions on running wires over this length. Also, the tv has 2 HDMI inputs so I plan on running 2 wires in case they decide to add the HD dvd player later. Will any interference be cause by putting the cables together and using zip ties to hold them?
I know it's alot of questions but I don't want to leave them disappointed since they are spending alot on the house and alot on the video/sound system, don't want to leave them disappointed.
As always, Thanks.
