    I doubt very much whether a Lindy cable that long will work at all well, people often experience problems with their 10m cables. For runs that long you have to start thinking about 'premium' cables and they are not cheap, £100 would be a minimum IMO, though some consider such prices 'snake oil' .. I paid £150 for a BetterCables 10m guaranteed 1080p.
