5 Meter HDMI Cable Unpacked

Superb quality transfer of audio and video signal digitally. HDMI cables are used to connect an audio video device with an HDMI output to a Plasma, LCD TV, Surround Sound Processor or projector with an HDMI input. The picture will look synoptical which ever HDMI cable you use, offering the cable is adequate of sending the signal without too much release. An HDMI cable with too much loss will be instantly obvious as the image will look like it has white dots all over it, referred to as 'sparklies'.

Features

Length: 5 Metre
Nitrogen gas-injected dielectric with quad-shielding for maximum signal strength.
Delivers Up to 1440p Digital HDTV.
Male to Male Connection
Mylar Backed Foil

Eh? This is a 5 meter HDMI not 2 meter and is a really good price for a 5 meter, so why so cold?
When it was £4.99 it was very hot LINK
#2
Good find. Just what I've been looking for. Thanks. Hot.
#3
I don’t need it but its Five meters:thumbsup: Ordered and heat added. Many thanks:-D
#4
Hot -
I paid the same for a 5m Gold plated hdmi cable off ebay.(Delivered next day too)
#5
Good deal but do remember, the longer the cable the more the
signal drops so if you can manage, get small.
#6
Good deal! Ordered, thanks.

Perfect for connecting my laptop to my 37 inch samsung...

Come on andy, you of all people should know thats how this site works sometimes :-D One day a post for a sky pink elephant statue gets 1000degrees the next a Ferrari 360 reduced to £1.50 goes cold as a cucumber!! I'll never understand peoples logic.

For me as someone who will shortly be needing some of these courtesy of M&S virtually giving away a lovely Bravia 5810 I think its a hot deal, Comet et all shoudl be hauled over the coals for charging in excess of £20 for these :thumbsup:

That's not true in the slightest, you can go to 100m with HDMI as long as it's a decently made cable.

That's analogue, digital signals don't drop. There are some issues with interference with long cables, but you'll know straight away if it's causing any issues (there will be data loss evident on screen).
#13
Is it me or does the cable from the link look like it has mini HDMI connectors?
Can anyone clarify if this cable has the normal size connectors each end?
#14
I'd be delighted if anyone could answer this.

Is there anyway I could output from my computer to my HD television using this cable? I have a ATI 4670 if it helps.

Has the card got an HDMI output? If not, you'd need a DVI to HDMI adaptor as well. Otherwise you should be good to go.
#16
Thanks, I'll check now. Didn't think it would be that easy!

Has two DVI ports, I do have a HDMI - DVI adapter already, so this is worth the risk for £4.

Going to try using it has a dual monitor set-up so I can play things onto the TV whilst also using the computer on my monitor.

If the adaptor is ATI and bundled with the card (not sure about generic ones) it will problay carry sound too, otherwise you will need another cable for the audio to travel though.

It's a generic ebay one. I do have some sort of adapter that came with the graphics card, but it seems to be an audio to yellow RCA/component? Something like that.

I'm not too bothered about the sound, but if I could find an adapter that would also carry that it would be a bonus.

Some of the ATi cards can detect if you've plugged in an HDMI adaptor (any kind, doesn't matter where you got it) and have an internal soundcard to output 7.1 through it too, my HD4770 does this, not sure if the 4670 will do it as well, but there's a good chance!

Digital signals certainly do 'drop' because the signals transmitted down the cable are analogue, there is no such thing as 'digital' in terms of signal propogation. So the quality of the cable, in terms of impedance and cross isolation, will have an impact on the received signal level and waveform integrity, and hence the potential for bit errors at the receiver.

I'm not suggesting for a minute that cables have to be expensive to work properly or that expensive cables will give a better picture than a well constructed cheap cable (they won't) but this 'digital signals are magic and will go down any cable' is nonsense.

Agreed any problems with the cable will be obvious not subtle.

Digital means just the method of sending and receiving information as "1" or "0". The information is then send or receive as a electromagnetic signal. And anyone who attended school from primary school should know that any electronmagnetic force reduces with distance (for example , a magnet with iron filing) and with other factor. This force is transmited down the copper wires of the HDMI cable and would reduce with distance and with impurities in the copper and with electrical interference. The reduction of this electromagnetic force is called attenuation, Even for DAB transmission, although the information is digital it would also result in poor reception over a certain distance, through sky conditions et.. Even fibre optics suffer from reduction... this was calculated to be 20 decibels per km distance by Nobel Price Winner, Charles Kao, from Hong Kong (China) who was the father of all fibre optics communications and the internet as we use today. You can find out more on Charles Kao and HDMI on Wikipedia.
To conclude the practical maximum length of a HDMI cable is 15 metres. The 100 metres length that you are refering to is probably for ethernet LAN connection.

check your TV manual to see what input resolution/refresh rates it supports.

Typically though its 50/60hz

The Amplitude of the transmitted signal drops. In fact if you had bothered to read properly , Spamcan61 said "there is no such thing as 'digital' in terms of signal propogation" - i.e. the SIGNAL will drop because of the propogation properties of the cable. On a digital signal, most relies on the Rx equipment having enough signal to re-constitute the original transmitted signal. If there' s too much noise in there, or the noise floor is too high, the receiver will be unable to differentiate between the noise and the signal, so parts of the signal will be missing. JUST AS IN AN ANALOGUE SIGNAL.

So yes, there is no theoretical limit in the cable length.

What most also forget is that a digital signal means that it's transmitted as 1's and 0's. An analogue signal is sent as effectively a varying sine wave, meaning that digital is a 1 or 0 (think as a light switch).whereas analogue is variable making it more difficult to pull out the transmitted signal over a highly degraded signal.....

as you say - "just another sweet case of someone trying to put another person straight while infact the're wrong!"

Lol

Of course they can drop, but if it drops you losing everything (everything in terms of the bit information that was being carried), you don't get a slight deterioration like with analogue.

Someone has already explained it perfectly on this topic, go and read it.

I discovered yesterday that there is such a thing as a crap HDMI cable. The one that comes with the sky box is a piece of crap. I was using it to connect my new media centre to my TC and when I pulled it out (not hard or anything) it left the end of itself still in the HDMI slot.

I previously had another sky HDMI cable which stopped working all together but sky man came back and brought me another one.

So in conclusion there is such a thing as a **** HDMI cable, apparently they come with sky boxes. But even that piece of crap gave a flawless picture while it was working.

Word of warning - I had an ATI graphics card and I bought a generic DVI to HDMI connector off eBay. It didn't work, but when I used an 'ATI' DVI/HDMI Adaptor and plugged an HDMI cable in it did work. I think there is something (or WAS) something funny about ATI DVI to HDMI connections that meant you had to use a proper ATI adaptor.
