    Hi
    I am not ready to go in quickly and purchase a HD or Blue-Ray DVD player yet. I was going try an up-scaling DVD player first until I was priced £45.00 to buy an HDMI cable from Currys. Does anyone experienced in this field think that the HDMI cables from CPC priced @ £5 can do the same job. I also need to know if up-scale needs a cable that can handle greater than 5Gbps. Any advice is appreciated. For the record is was going to try the Phillips DVD player from Asda priced at £29.99

    There are plenty of topics about this in the cables section but basically any cable will work fine.
    If the cable is long (say over 5M) then a better one might be a good idea.
    Also if it is for a console where the cable is going to be moved around and unplugged then a better quality one might be a good idea.
    For normal use a £5 cable should be fine.
