HDMI without a shadow of a doubt,

This passes 1080p and also passes the hidef sound to your AV receiver as LPCM which can then give you out the hidef sounds.

Component will only give 1080i. And will also mean you have to connect an Optical or Coaxial to get the sound which cant pass the Hidef sounds to your receiver.

With regards to buying the HDMI if you are using <1m you can buy any cable really as it is a digital signal.

For example this one from Kenable for less than &#163;5 1m HQ HDMI Cable
