The cable is about 2m long. HDMI and USB should be extendable ( no official statement).

Any suggestion (unofficially) on extension options or best practice?

@safiery, did you need to use HDMI/USB signal boosters, or just standard extensions?

Used Ethernet over HDMI cable. Two of the HDMI pin outs are for the Touch function. No repeaters needed.

Any chance of a link as to which cables/setup you used to extend?

so the HDMI has touch? USB is just supplying power?

I seem to remember reading somewhere the cable is NON-extendable. I can not find that detail now. 78inches is too short for me, so a deal breaker. If extendable, I'll reconsider

..just to verify: if you look into the GX50 product page, at the bottom of the 'notes' section, it clearly states the fixed GX50 cable is non-extendable. that is unfortunate.

Note that some HDMI over ethernet systems compress the data which is sort of OK for video but artifacts on computer graphics and characters can be significant.
