HDMI or DVI - either one makes sense if your system is going to be installed for the next couple of years (or more).

I'd also stick in a Composite or S-Video as sometimes these can be a life saver if your having problems configuring for Component or Digital.

where can i get a price on HDMI cable in the UK ?
I have ordered component cable from blue jeans cable in the USA
because UK prices came very expensive. I will ask them for a quote

Plenty of places that supply Component cables at reasonable prices in the UK - I'm biased I think OUR prices are reasonable for the brands I supply.

I have lots of HDMI cables in stock so drop me a note and maybe our pricing on HDMI will meet your requirements :)

Does anyone have any info on how good the high end HDMI cables are, is it worth going for a digital magic cable (£67 for 2m)or a wireworld cable(£200 ??) as opposed to the Molex cable(£22 for 2m).

Although based on what I have read so far about HDMI it does put me off spending loads of money on a high end cable. Although I suppose if I want to get the best out of my HDMI gear I need to get a decent cable.

If you cant decide between Molex and BetterCables have both :)

Seriously though if you want one of each to try and then keep the one you like best please drop me a note.

PS I've asked for a WireWorld Starlight5 cable to try it out but no stock in the UK at present (other than the ONE cable doing the rounds of the magazines).

Does WireWorld Starlight5 cable make a difference ?

According to WireWorld it does :)

I've not seen any comparative reviews as yet and as per previous post I cant get a cable to test at present as the ONE cable that's in the UK is doing the publicity rounds.

Best regards

Joe I did PM you, but nonetheless I will take one of the better cables, what do I need to do from here? Incidentally which one do you use or do you not use your HDMI socket?
