Hi, I'm thinking of connecting my pc (which has a x550 pci express card) to my panny ae700 by using a hdmi cable to get hi def. Now, my query is this...firstly, what kind of picture am I likely to get? Does anyone know of a good place to buy a cable from for about 3 meters or so. And also, my pc is about 10ft away from my amp so ideally I want to run a optical cable from my pc (it has an audigy optical output) across the floor, but how long can optical be before it degrades in signal? Or doesn't it? It's either that of put my pc nearer my amp and pay a fortune for a 15ft hdmi cable to my projector. cheers Neil.
