    Hi....

    I have just purchased a Pioneer 42XD Plasma & 545 DVD/HDD player both with HDMI connections. Could you please advise on a decent manufacture of HDMI cables...

    Have read many threads but none really point me in the right direction...

    I have seen one up for sale in Play.com, which is around £9.99 in the sales... Any views??? :lease:

    Thanks

    Bear in mind that HDMI cables carry digital signals and as such the degradation of signal possible with analogue cables due to interference etc dosnt really apply. In other words if you pick up a cheap well made HDMI cable that works, you are unlikely to see any improvement by buying a more expensive one, however much you spend.
    That said, QED do some nice purple ones that seem very popular !!!!

    Nothing wrong with those.
    And £9.99 is an excellent price.

    Nothing more expensive is going to improve things.

    Ended up getting 2 of the Linx 2.4m HDMI cables from Play for £9.99 each inc shipping.

    Also got 2 IXOS XFT02 1.5m Scart cables from Amazon for £10.43 each free shipping.
