I use a 3 ft HDMI cable from my 9242 into an AV receiver, then a 6 ft. cable going to an 8 port HDMI splitter, which among other output lines has a 35 ft. Monoprice cable going to an HDMI wall plate, which then has a further 10 ft. HDMI cable going to the TV in that room. No video artifacts or audio dropouts of any kind on that or any set in the house, and all cables are pre 1.4 spec (2007 era HDMI). The 35 ft is tin plated copper 22AWG for in wall installation (CL2 rated), with gold plated contacts - it was around 40 dollars when I bought it. The 3, 6 and 10 ft. cables are 28AWG, and I'm also using 1 ft. port savers on each splitter connection to keep the substantial cable weight off the HDMI ports. Never had a problem with the signal.
