I have been looking for a longer HDMI cable which will reach my upscaling DVD player from my wall mounted plasma for a while now and to be honest the prices I have seen were extortionate.
I found this one and it looks like the price racket for HDMI cables is about to end.
There are other lengths available also on the site if this 3 metre one is too long for your circumstances.

HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a specification that combines video and audio into a single digital interface for use with DVD players, digital television (DTV) players, set-top boxes, and other audiovisual devices. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video plus standard to multi-channel surround-sound audio. HDMI benefits include uncompressed digital video, a bandwidth of up to 5 gigabytes per second, one connector instead of several cables and connectors, and communication between the video source and the DTV. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements. Instead of using multiple of the two dozen connectors on the back of a home theatre component, you use just one HDMI connection.
HDMI offers two big benefits: - Instead of needing multiple cables for the video signal and multiple cables for the sound signal, HDMI integrates all video and sound signals onto a single, thin cable. It makes it trivially easy to connect components together. - Instead of converting digital signals to analogue (to run through the cables) and then back to digital, everything on an HDMI cable remains in its original, uncompressed digital format.
