tivo via hdmi switch and 10 metre cable - will it work

in theory I can get a "next room" option by using a HDMI switch ( I have an unused one), or a splitter, with a 10 metre cable.
has anyone successfully done this i.e. is a Tivo Ok with that cable length, and via an in-line powered switch ? Amazon sell blue rigger 10m HDMi which should be good quality. I use their " lifetime guarantee" shorter cables already. A crude "peice of string" test suggests 10m is long enough. But it would be a frustrarting hassle if the Tivo's output cannot cope

people have successfully put the tivo away in a cupboard ect before with ir over hdmi senders, it may well work but the only way to find out would be to test it with your Tivo and Your TV, the Tivo is rather fussy about getting a handshake from the TV and if it doesn't get it or the handshake is tardy it won't display a tv picture (though the menus work)
So I would set it up on the floor before running the cables and make sure you get the kit from someone who takes returns
