I would like to mirror the movie I'm showing onto my sunroom tv where I serve popcorn. The problem is my projector is about 150ft away. Has anyone run a HDMI cable that long or have a suggestion on how I could get the video/audio to my TV? Has anyone tried the HDMI extender over cat5 boxes?

We use a cat5 extender at church. About 200 feet to the projector and works perfectly. It can be powered from either or both ends. I don't remember what brand or model but it is a single cat5. I will try to remember to check Sunday. I have all my equipment in my sunroom and use an HDMI splitter/switch. It is a sewell spyder. Works great. I can have one source on the pj and one on the sunroom TV or both on the same source. It cost around $120 and has 4 inputs and 2 outputs. My HDMI run to the pj is 50 ft ad works fine.
