Hi, I'm taking delivery of my new HD tv&DVD player this week and i need a HDMI cable. Can anyone please help and advise me on what to look for cause i know very little about this part of it and if there are any websites to purchase these. Play.com have got some good offers but i don't know if they are of a good standard. Cheers
I have a 42" 1080p LCD TV (LG).. Bought a £60 HDMI (QED) cable to go with it for our Virgin TV box. Works a treat.
Bought a PS3 + £13 HDMI cable. That also works a treat and damned if I could see the difference between the cables. Now I am not saying that there is not a difference, just that is was not noticable.
As for surround sound through the TV. Luckily, the TV has an optical output and the surround sound amp has an optical input. Hey presto, surround sound from the PS3 or quiter 2 channel sound through the TV when listenign at night ;)
Because the site uses a white print, black background abomination, stroke your mouse across the print to highlight it.
There are many other sites which agree with the aforementioned engineer's views.
Basically unless the cable is in excess of 10 metres or so, a £5 to £10 cable will suffice. In this case, gold plated contacts within the connectors are a good idea. This is because most, if not all TV HDMI pinned sockets will be gold plated, so a good contact will be assured.
The ones that ALDI are selling this Tuesday for £4.99 are gold plated and triple copper shielded.
Judging by the quality of their past cables I have bought from them they will be terrific value for money.
