How to get HDMI cable from electronics cabinet to televator on passenger slide.

Just had a new tv and televator installed in the passenger side slide. The installer was able to tap into the coax running from the electronics distribution box to the basement storage wiring.
He was unable to run an HDMI for the Dish Wally to the new tv in the slide.

That HDMI plug looks huge, so I was looking for advice on how others have upgraded systems. Removing the old overhead tv and adding a new smart tv on a televator in the passenger slide. The Dish Receiver is in the electronics cabinet over the drivers seat.

You might want to consider a wireless HDMI extender.

Wireless (Wifi / Bluetooth etc) HDMI are not good solutions. Compression, junk quality, EDID handling etc.

If you can't get and HDMI cable through, then run a Cat 6/7 wire and use HDBaseT Transmitter / Receiver hardware.
The next big step up from there would be HDMI video over IP...but that's even more expensive for stuff that actually works.
And yes, good stuff costs $$'s, especially video stuff.

Hello Dav L
Sounds like you have experience with this type of issue..
I'm thinking of doing the same thing as the OP
For our coach it would be a long run for the HDMI cable...is there a limit length for an HDMI cable ? Looks like we might need 30 - 35 feet. Do they come that long or can you patch two or more together ?
Thanks. LSBEH

We have run a 30 foot HDMI cable from our A/V cabinet (above driver's seat) to our main (mid-ship) TV. Works great!

I have a wireless HDMI from IOGear bypassing a bad cable from my AV cabinet to the splitter in the basement compartment. Has been working great for a couple three years.

Look for cable that meets that standard at the length you need. Under 50 foot is readily available. This will be more expensive than I am guessing your are expecting. Good stuff costs. One of our partner companies test equipment to certify cables is $500K.
Each certified cable has a serial number and is hand tested.

https://www.avprostore.com/category-s/2056.htm

Do not patch two cables together.

Double check the length needed anticipating extra length for all curves and up / down walls. Get the next available size. Do not kink the cable with too tight turns. Put split loom wire conduit around the cable when there are any sharp edges that might puncture the wire. Longer lengths require active electronics in the cable (RedMere) and have a Source and an Output end so be careful when installing it that it's not in backwards.

If you are just buying cables, just go to monoprice.com.

I have a 50 foot HDMI cable in my 5er. No noticeable quality loss. The bad news ,,a critter chewed into the center of the 50 foot length big time and killed the signal. Took me a few hours to install the original cable and didn't want to do it over again,, I took a chance and spliced the cable in the center , I got lucky and I was back in business with the same quality signal.
Also had 50 foot HDMI's in my S&B with no issues at all.

I ran a 50' HDMI cable from Monoprice between our front entertainment cabinet and the bedroom TV. Works great!

Please tell me more specifics as to how you “ ran” the cable. Particularly within the coach and a slide that moves. And getting down from the electronics cabinet, thx

I neglected to order a cable from my A/V center to the bedroom. Went with a Wireless HDMI from I/O gear. 1080, zero latency, no compression, has worked just fine for us to make the best of a bad situation.
