Default 10m DVI - HDMI cable - cannot play HD ?

I used a 10m DVI-HDMI cable to connect my rig to a HDTV. When i played HD movies from my rig, the TV shows a noticable lag and unsycronize. It didnt occur when i play DVD.

Do you guys know why and how can I solve the problem?

thanks in advance

What media player are you using? Try using VLC Player if you're not already. Could also try Media Player Classic, as well.

i am sure it is not the issue of the player . I used VLC also. The cable is 10m long, is it the cause of this lag ? the movie is not streaming but blueray.

So what is it like on a monitor (not through this cable)?
