I have 2 hdmi cables. They are both 6ft long and different brands. Here is my question: If I cut them both is it possible to splice them together to make long one? Also, just out of curiosity... If they are the same brand is it possible then?
You should be able to run a 50' hdmi cable without requiring a repeater, so the length is not an issue. I would buy a longer cable. You can't splice them like coax because hdmi has multiple separate channels -- it's not just one RF signal like coax. Just take a look at the plugs and you should be able to see 19 contacts. But if you have the hands of a brain surgeon, then take a look at this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=640545
