Default 65 foot HDMI cable works from cable box, not from receiver.

I have a Pioneer sc-1527-k receiver with 2 hdmi outputs . From one I use a 6 foot to main tv, no problem. I run another 65 foot hdmi cable to tv outside. When I run it direct from cable box it works fine. When I run from receiver, no signal. When i run my 6 foot cable to my outdoor tv, no problem. Why does the 65 foot cable not work when coming out of my Pioneer receiver?

Probably the voltage drop in the cable. The Pioneer may not have as much power current capabilities as the cable box.

They make power inserters like this one to maintain the 5v at the tv input:

50 feet is about the max for HDMI signals, and it all depends on the quality of the cable, and where did you get a 65 footer? Or did you couple two together?

And remember that the HDMI signals are at high frequency's, so the dB attenuation at around 350 MHz on the cable may be too high for a good signal at the other end, and as stated the cable box may have a higher output level.
