    Ms state that a HDMI will be released when the demand is there.

    Hdmi cables actually appeared on the net at some point like lik-sang but disappeared (closed by Sony after legal issues with some products sold by LIK-S).

    Speculation is that the cable will hold some sort of HDCP chip to coincide with the HDMI spec.

    The consensus is that we will have to wait and see!

    Update for this is probable to add support for HDMI/HDCP 1080P etc..
