Amiga to plasma TV issues

I've just got an A1200 up and running after a good 15-20 years without one, and I'm having some issues getting it working right with my TV.

I have a 50" Panasonic plasma from about 2006, and this works well with a well-made RGB-scart cable (although the top part of the image is cut off, which is problematic for some games).

My main issue is that the TV is located nearly 6 metres away from the Amiga, and there isn't any way I can move them closer together. This means using the AmigaKit 4.8 metre RGB/scart cable with a 1 metre extension cable, but the extension cable degrades the image significantly, with waves of banding interference across the image.

I'm not sure what I can do to make that any better. I have considered the expensive option of an Indivision AGA board, but I've read that this outputs in 60hz which isn't ideal. I'm considering attempting to use a VGA adaptor, but would this be just as likely to have interference?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
