    Hi and welcome oldschool,

    Multiple ways possible. 30 feet is still in the range of HDMI, so a 30 feet HDMI cable should work.
    Alternatively you can look @ HDMI extenders over CAT, like this:

    I think the HDMI extender is a cheaper solution, and has 3x the range so you can use it over larger lengths (if needed) in the future, but you'll have to do some math on that ;)

    Hi.
    Since you installed StreamedMP, you could be taking about MovingPictures (community plugin) or My Videos (core plugin).

    Anyway, to view movie details, you need to set a path, ie "c:\My documents\My movies", weather it is MyVideos or Moving Pictures.

    Assuming the former, see http://wiki.team-mediaportal.com/1_...gs/4_Videos_Settings/2_Video_Folders_Settings for MyVideos

    More help:

    PS: Wiki is quite good :)
