My current 24' 24awg standard HDMI can only get me 30hz at the 32' distance.
If I'm following you correctly the Yamaha is the hub, so the the ATV is connected via the 3' HDMI cable to the Yamaha and then out from the Yamaha via fiber (once it gets here to your tv).
AWG24 is a pretty thick cable which means you lose flexibility and increase the strain on your HDMI inputs so using a thinner cable is a good idea. By standard HDMI cable do you mean it's not a High Speed HDMI cable?
Which ATV? The ATV3 (1080) or the ATV4k (HDR)?
I would use a Premium High Speed HDMI cable from the ATV to the Yamaha. If all of your HDMI connected devices (ATV, Yamaha, and Sony) have the same HDMI hardware versions (HDMI 2.0b for example) then you shouldn't have any issues. However, if one of your devices has the HDMI 1.4 hardware, then your HDMI chain will be limited to the protocols that are part of the HDMI 1.4 chipsets. HDMI is backwards compatible but only to the in-common protocol sets.
At 33' be mindful of bend radius. In other words, if you need to make a bend in the cable run make it as gentle as possible.
What are you trying to push, 1080, 4k, 4k HDR?
