Free HDMI cable from VM?

Hi All

I'm about to purchase my first HD LCD set (Panasonic LXD70 32in) I'm told HDMI cables can be expensive (I know little about them) but sure I recall reading VM will send one out to "Update/upgrade" my system. Is that correct or should I just DIY?

If you have a V+ box then they should have left you one.

HDMI cables can be expensive if bought in the high street ie currys, dixons, etc etc these cables are no better than the cheap ones (at short lengths).

scan sell them for about 8 quid if you do wnat to splash out on a better cable than personally i don't think you can go wrong with mark grant cables.

They never left one - probably as it was a Sony Wega CRT - I never asked for one, but just had confirmed on another thread they will post one out.

Cheers!

Engineer left me a new scart lead and HDMI cable just to be sure. He offered to leave me another, but I had no need. Nice guy :thumbsup:
