Hello,

I am concerned about loss of video quality, transmission loss, etc.?
Thanks,
Cliff

The guage of the wire is increased when using extended cables to eliminate problems. I have used 25ft cables without any problems.

Same here. 15 feet cable should not be a problem. A  thick 15ft cable would not give me a problem before I started using HDMI so it shouldnt be a problem now.

15 ft is no problem at all  ==>  I've used 25' with no problems, and you can buy cables as long as 100'  [http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10201&cs_id=1020101&p_id=3574&seq=1&format=2 ]

The longer lengths are double or triple shielded, and generally have ferrites at the ends to further reduce any electrical "noise".
