Playbook to stream video to TV (+25ft HDMI)
Has anyone connected a Playbook to their TV using a 25 foot micro-HDMI to HDMI cable? I read that is close to the max you want to run an HDMI cable. I want to know if anyone has had troubles doing this.
I recently dropped cable tv and I was thinking of buying a Playbook to stream web TV content to my TV. I currently use my laptop to do this but that is rather clunky and awkward. Anyone opinions from people currently doing this?

I have used a regular 30 foot hdmi cable to connect my tv to my "entertainment" system. It runs down through a wall where the tv is mounted, across the basement ceiling and up through another wall to the hdmi selector box in a closed cabinet with tivo, receiver, dvd player. Cable and remote controlled hdmi selector box were purchased from Monoprice.com.

As for HDMI cables, a lot of the "high quality/low quality" is marketing. Sure it may have a higher transfer rate but in reality the signal is being transmitted digitally. Either it works or it doesn't. VERY few times, and I mean VERY few times have I seen an HDMI cable work with issues. It happens yes, but in reality if the HDMI cable works without any distortion when looking at the display panel, plug in a 200 dollar HDMI cable and you probably won't notice the difference.
