Could you expand on exactly what kind and how big differences will I see when running a HDMI cable for a "long distance"? And what distance are we talking here? Isn't it always the case of "digital signal = either it's there or it isn't, nothing in between"?

Reason I ask is I WILL run a long HDMI cable in the foreseeable future.

All MMO's are now baby-school weak. The only good MMO's make your eyes bleed and force you to eat glass. In my day we had to walk uphill in the snow 5 miles *JUST* to log in.
