Thanks BUT - all the electrician said was that I needed a 30ft. HDMI cable...The site has many, many to choose from.
How do I know which one to pick??

I clicked on the bluejeans link. The front page says the BJC Belden Series-F2 HDMI Cable is good for short distances and the BJC Belden Series-1 Bonded-Pair HDMI Cable is best for long runs.

You have a long run, so I'd get the latter. They have a 30' cable.

FWIW I have the same cable but 50'. No issues ever.

Hi,

HDMI is an expensive cable even though how short or long it is. You can try shop through the internet. They'll be posting some prices for their valued customers.

by the way...ALL hdmi cables are the same! No matter how much you spend it doesnt matter! With HDMI either you have audio/video or you dont! It is a digital signal, not analog... So if you spend $25 or $100 there is no signal degridation! You can get good HDMI cables from www.partexpress.com or try ebay...

"by the way...ALL hdmi cables are the same! No matter how much you spend it doesnt matter!"

Not necessarily true. While digital either "works" or it "doesn't work", some cables are better than others and are better at passing the bandwidth than others, especially when it comes to longer cable lengths.

If you have a 3' cable, sure, use whatever you can get. You won't see the shortcomings of lesser cable in a very short run unless you tie it in knots.

In longer runs, which this poster had (30'), a higher quality cable with better bonded pair wiring can serve you versus a shorter cable which may not work at all, or may work intermittently. It'll survive any bending better, too.
