Where did you buy the cable? If you don't mind, can you share some information on your setup?

comment Truth about high quality HDMI cables
I'd be happy to find a $2.5 cable if it is 25' long, supports 3D and certified for in wall (UL3).

Thanks for the links. There's obviously so much written about this, it looks like I am not the first or last person wondering about this. Now I'm just wondering if i should purchase from a local store or an online store like Amazon.

comment How do I wire my wall-mounted HD TV?
Thanks @shirlockhomes and @Tester101! To clarify, there is no PVC conduit but just a rectangular space that originates in the wall behind the TV, goes down to the basement. This is an unfinished basement with a fully exposed ceiling. The extension cord is in-wall (behind the wooden panel) for only about 5 feet down. After that, it is again in the open, running along the ceiling and comes back up in a 4" hole in floor. The first solution looks like a PowerBridge solution. Can a junction box always need to go into a wall or can it be secured in any other way? I can send real pics if that helps.

Thanks for your reply, @TomG! + yes, there is wall on left side. Stand & subwoofer are backed up in corner of 2 walls. + Access b/w 1st floor and basement is rectangular space originating at 8" hole behind TV, reaching basement ceiling. The TV wires are drawn down through foam/insulation, just above the joists. The wires are then drawn along the basement ceiling, coming back up to the 1st floor through a 4" hole. + basement is unfinished, ceiling is fully exposed. there are bunch of pipes that transport wiring along the space shown by the horizontal dotted lines. + very happy with SmartStrip!
