i thought as they were digital (1s and 0s) as opposed to analogue signal, that there was no loss in quality

How much it set you back?

With HDMI cable you get no loss of signal so they either work or they dont,The ones i had were bought at auction and were un named so were very cheap but unfortunately i dont have any left

10mtr ones are fine, ive used both a single 10m cable and 2 5m ones joined together without problems.. you would need to have a very long (100m? guessing the same as utp cat 5 for signal loss) cable before you start needing a repeater or something..

There's no clearcut answer for this - while hdmi is digital, the signal will degrade and over longer lengths the quality of the cable will be more of an issue. How long a cable are you looking for? I'd have thought 15m would be fine, probably squeeze up to 30m (with one like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000UVTATG/ref=nosim/?tag=hotukdeals-21) however any more than that and you'll probably be looking at extender/amplifiers or changing to cat5.

I've got one of these and happy with it especially at a cost of £11.73.
