A cheap cable will do.

There's no difference in short 1m runs.

I bought one from Mark Grants for £16 but i only spent that much because i was in a hurry to get one and he does next day delivery and they cost £20 or more in the shops.

Hello oldnovice

Keep in mind an HDMI cable is pretty much transporting a Digital version of the Component signal your already viewing on your Analogue connection. say that all sub 5m cables ought to perform equally well – though that assumes they are all built to spec and to decent tolerances; which is not always the case.

Many folk go the bargain basement route and get great results – others prefer knowing that cables are manufactured and engineered to a high specification and go with the likes of BetterCables or Octava.

If you want a relatively low cost but well engineered cable have a look at Octava they have 1m cables available for around 12.00 GBP – see
