    I have a dilemma...I set up my home theatre a few months ago and ran HDMI from AVR to TV and ran it through a wall and it would be difficult to replace it. My question is....I want to move the location of my equipment/AVR etc about 6 feet but the current HDMI is not long enough. Is there a way to connect another HDMI cable to the existing one since I will have a tough time running a longer cable through the wall again?

    Help is appreciated?

    Check Monoprice.com. Here is one thing you can use: http://www.monoprice.com/products/p...=10240&cs_id=1024010&p_id=3345&seq=1&format=2

    Be conscious of how much you are extending. Anything past 30-35 feet you might consider using an active extender.

    Yes, get an HDMI extension cable

    Monoprice makes very good inexpensive cables. Get an HDMI extension cable. I am not sure how long you need, but here is a 10 ft extension cable for $11.31 the make other lengths.
