    Supra have the HF100 DVI/HDMI cable which is designed for longer runs. 20 meter is the recommended limit for DVI but HDMI can be a lot longer, can't help you with CAT5 though :thumbsup:

    There's no need to go to CAT5 for HDMI when your only going to 15m - our BetterCables Display Magic HDMI cables are available in lengths including 12, 15, 23 and 31m.

    We use/supply Gefen (and AutoPATCH) HDMI and DVI over CAT5 converters and whilst it has its place its a lot of unnecessary cost at these 'short' distances.

    The Display Magic cables are good for 1080P at the lengths indicated so more than adequate for any Home Theatre application.

    If you need 'Distribution' we also have Gefen 2x2, 4x2 and 6x2 HDMI Distribution Amps on the way.

    Best regards

    Joe
