    So my situation is that I need to make my HDMI cable at least 2 feet longer to reach my BD Player/ Audio system. I already have a 50ft HDMI cable and read around the internet, where people say that 50ft is when the HDMI cable would start experiencing problems with video or audio output and quality loss. I checked on ebay and there's two different types of extension options for me. I was just wondering which one would should I buy where I would receive the least problems for extension of my cable.

    There's this one:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Gold-HDMI-Male-...emQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item2a02c28bbd

    Which I would have to use another HDMI cable to hook it up to the female end.

    and

    http://cgi.ebay.com/3-ft-HDMI-Male-...emQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item335b355734

    Where I would have to just hook it up to my system.

    Any suggestions on which one would be the best?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are already at the 50 ft. limit, you risk signal degradation is you use ANY passive device.

    Either of those adapters are just as good, AND just as bad.
