I have my PS3 in a seperate room, attached to Yamaha AV system. It connects to my TV via a 15 meter HDMI 1.4 cable.
I want move, but cannot USB cable 15 meters? It is too far!!
So I either lose surround sound and have move. ...
or have no move.... and have full surround sound!
Anyone got any suggestions?

They sit side by side.....with 1m cable connecting them.
The AV system (which has MySky also going into it) then connects to TV via 15 m cable.
All is set up in different room (a side office).

usb is max 5 metres but you can get longer ones with a booster
add a 5m cable and thats 15m
For the same price you can get
to run USB over a network cable up to 50m but it only supports USB1.1 (not USB 2)
However i think you might still have trouble with the bluetooth over that distance if there are any walls in the way. Presumably your normal controllers work ok?

Another option is to move the ps3 to the tv, and buy and run a toslink cable for the audio to the amp. Disadvantage of this is you will lose the 'channel' switching of the source in the amp.
or do what a lot of others have done and move it all to the tv, and use gaffa tape to cover the led's and iother light sources. Thats what Ive done to my NAD, since all of its controls are an on screen menu system.
