Hi all,

I'm looking to run an HDMI cable around my studio flat which is a length about 55ft/17m. Is it better to use an HDMI or a Cat5e/6 cable set up? I see that HDMI signals get dodgy around 50ft, but at the same time see reviews for 55ft cables saying the signal is fine - so wondering what is better?!

Thanks in advance!

Thanks. In your experience would that length of HDMI (55ft) cause issues? I only ask as my trunking might not deal with 3 Cat5e's!
