I just received a new official high def pack for my Xbox. I was expecting to get a short cable with a breakout box attached and a (thin) component cable (which I was going to replace) as per every picture I've seen about this product. Instead I've received a cable that is much thicker (higher quality by the look of it) than the original cable with the optical out moulded to the Xbox plug end. The TV/PJ end has 5 very good quality gold phonos on it. All in all Im please I received this cable and not the box version, it seems really good quality. When did MS start selling this cable? and does it produce a better quality picture than the original kit? (as I've not hooked it up yet).
