Outdoor hdmi


I have about a 25 run of hdmi cable to an outdoor tv on my patio. 15 ft runs through my basement the remainder is run through a hole I drilled out my siding and outdoors to the tv. What method and materials would be best to weather proof the cabling and secure the wall opening.

If I were you, I'd pick up a waterproof HDMI cable.

I was hoping that one was obvious.

You could run the hdmi cable in conduit to a weather proof box and use a keystone jack. Then when you need it just plug in.
