Long cable from AV eqpt to LCD TV?

    I'm buying an LCD or plasma TV, but room layout dictates that all AV eqpt must go on other side of room, which is about 8m cable run away. I was looking at TVs with separate media box (e.g Sharp LC32-GD1E) but choice is limited/uninspiring and not all have long enough cable.

    Does anyone have any suggestions please for connecting the AV eqpt together and then running to TV in a single (or few as poss) 8m long cable(s)? Would something like a Joytech AV center be the answer, connected to TV with a 10m scart? I figured I should avoid IR video senders, assuming that picture quality will be poor.

    The AV eqpt will include new freeview/HDD/DVD recorder, HDMI-equipped DVD player, trusty old VHS and 2-channel stereo amp (not yet moved up to surround sound!). If I buy an HDMI-equipped DVD player, would a separate 10m HDMI lead be likely to improve picture quality to justify the extra £100?

    All ideas/comments would be much appreciated.
