Home Theater Wiring - HDMI, Cat-5

I am finishing a basement and I would like to put my peripherals (Directv receiver, DVD, audio receiver, etc.) away in a closet about 40 feet from the TV. As I only wish to see the TV on the wall, and without seeing any of the other peripherals, I was wondering if I was best served by connecting all this with Cat-5 cable vs. HDMI cables? I have experience with the HDMI, but Cat-5 I am wondernig what I would need to establish the appropriate connections to establish a High Def home theater system?

All you'll need is a single HDMI cable to display the video on the TV. All of the other connections will stay in the closet.

Problem is, the HDMI cable will need to be rated for 40 over feet. That cable will be expensive, but not as much as converting it to Cat5 and back.
