    Paul, I was looking into this, I dont doubt your claim but how can this be so when the connection is all digital. A cheapo HDMI cable still transmits the 010101`s just like an expensive one would do? - Open question to all AV guys.

    Carl,i find it hard to understand as well but prior to getting my new cable i could tell on my pio 434 plasma that when the samsung logo came up i noticed jaggies around the 'loading' notice,now with the new cable it is clear and sharp with no jaggies, i also found the screen very bright before with the supplied cable,but now the colour is natural therefore there is a notable differance in the quality of picture :) depending on the cable being used.

    As I recall,the better cable allows a cleaner signal,which doesn't need to rely on error correction so heavily,when eventually processed.

    its more to do with sheilding, if a cable is made with poor components it may be more open to interference, but digital cables are a different bag than say analog ones. It dosent hurt to use the best you can but you do not need to spend alot. A well made £15 cable will be just as good as a £400 quid one. what you usaualy find is the longer cable lenghs required the more important the quality will become.(in theory).

    I use a wire world 9m cable that cost £300+ because at the time you could not get a HDMI lead that long from anywhere. Having done a A/B with the one that came free with the pio 868i i (molex)could not see a real difference.
    Both produced a very fine pic.
    Try the free cable first.
