Need to replace HDMI Cable...

... I have a broken "end" on the HDMI cable leading into my DirectTV box. The problem is that HDMI cable runs from the large TV in the middle of the coach to the front where the DirectTV box is located - about a 15/20' run.

It looks like the cable runs up from the cable box to the ceiling and across the coach and back down a cabinet to the TV. I need to replace the cable, not sure how to go abou it.

Anyone have with suggestions on how to tackle this one?

This is on a 2011 Monaco Knight with the bunk floorplan.

If you pull on one end of the cable do you get movement on the other end? If so you might be able to use the old cable as a fish tape to pull in the new cable.

Google "hdmi cable repair"..... It can be done and Pacific Cable or Toby Electronics even have kits for plug change or repair.

Another option would be to run the hdmi signal over cat5 or 6 cable. Several companies make the cat5 to hdmi converters and the cat 5 cable can be much easier to run/pull since it won't have that bulky hdmi connection on the end. I've done this on several of our emergency response trailers and there doesn't seem to be any loss in video or audio quality.

Just another option...
