I've been told pound land. Hdmi cable just as good ?

They are probably manufactured cheaply with bad shielding etc. so no

You can never have enough shielding.

what would they be shielding a digital signal from?

Anyone seen any cheap optical cable lately? I use this hdmi cable, it's excellent.

yes, but what would you want to shield a digital signal from? and what is it you expect to be strong enough to corrupt the data?

Lots of things — nearby cellphones; passing motorcycles; noisy household lighting switches, etc.

that would be the case for analogue equipment but HDMI is digital, it is either off or on.

Ive got this and the 99p (ex-Dixons stock) Belkins.

The 99p Belkins are better for 99p as they are braided and a little thicker, but to be honest it wont affect day 2 day usage.

What is the reason / point for having ethernet in an HDMI cable?

I'm struggling to think of 2 devices I would need to connect this way that requires ethernet, that doesn't already have ethernet in both devices. A games console already has ethernet / wifi. A SMART TV already has some capability built in, either wifi, adaptor or ethernet, and older / non-smart devices wouldn't know what to do with an ethernet connection.

Or is it being used to transmit higher resolution images (4K x 2K in the OP), in which case TV's need to play catch up and offer more than 1080p

It is still an electrical signal passing through the cable so it can still have interference from other sources. While the chances are slim with a 1m-2m length cable, if it is poor quality there is still a possibility. You can test this with a cheap cable tap it and if the audio cuts out/crackles, or picture messes up you know it is poor.

These cables seem to be made with decent quality so should be perfect. Better spending 49p more for something that seems of a decent build, rather than a cheap cable that may or may not even be able to do audio return channel etc. despite what the listing says.

It is more for the future, you can connect an Ethernet cable to your TV, then all the rest of your equipment bluray, consoles, receiver, computer maybe will then only need HDMI connected to the TV. I think it is a good idea, especially in the next few years when everything will be connected to the internet, and wireless isn't always the best option for everyone, gaming especially.

Just to add, this isn't an ethernet cable stuck to a HDMI cable, it is built in, so there is only one HDMI connector on the end. Currently nothing really supports it, but future devices will not need an ethernet port as it will go through HDMI instead.

These cables are top notch, would be more if I didn't already have a drawer full :p

Picked up a 5m version last time works brilliantly

Shielding works both ways. It prevents interference radiating out of the cable and causing havoc with nearby radios or ADSL lines.

Fantastic, needed one for my Raspberry Pi - now to find the right USB cable :)

Hey guys,

I'm not really sure how this would work as this is the first time I've come across it.

I have a PS3 which is connected to the internet via wifi, could I use this cable to connect the PS3 to the TV and also gain internet on that?

Alternatively, I also have a laptop with a HDMI port, connected to the net via wifi, could I get internet on my TV using this cable?

Are there specific TV/console/laptop requirements I should be aware of. I have an LG Smart TV if it helps.
#26
I tried replacing this with the HDMI cable which came with Sky box, i felt the quality was superior on the cable provided by sky.
#27
well quality of the picture would be identical, do you mean the build quality of the actual cable then ? as signal either gets there or it don't, no in between.

I think it's because (most) people have experience of crappy SCART cables and compared them to better-made ones; you definitely saw the difference with those. People assume the same of HDMI.

Seems to be the norm on here, this debate or the fanboyism Apple Vs Android threads..

Still a good deal, but we're not comparing Bush speakers to Bang And Olufsen here.

Not true,

Signal can degrade just like analogue, but in a different way. Black dots, green dots, or smearing in picture, a flickering, etc. Heck even a snow effect like analogue sometimes.

...So many people still think HDMI cables either WORK or..... DON'T WORK.

Absolute tosh!
#35
I been doing av home cinema for the last 30 years, even bought connectors/speaker cables for like £500 when it did matter, when i mean it either gets there or it does not that is true, if you see breakup etc thats usually down to the length of cable, if you have 2 different 1m cables and you see the picture the other end they will be the same, trust me on this.

what would they be shielding a digital signal from?

how do you think it transmits from one end of the cable to the other? magical floating 1's and 0's???

The digital signal can degrade, in electrical terms

The individual cables inside the HDMI need to carry electrical signals from one end to the other, and thus require adequate shielding

The HDMI signal will fail if attenuation is too high, or if signal goes out of phase so that the receiving unit can't reconstitute them accurately, Crosstalk can also contribute uneven and random noise which will degrade the signal

As I discussed above, it’s not possible for one cable to look better than another, So like i say, your either get no image or an unwatchable image, so if both cables display a picture, they will be identical 100% regardless if cost £1 or £2000.

With the fails, there’s either no image, or an unwatchable image (flickering, etc). In all these cases, the cable is faulty or inadequate, and you should return it for a different cable.

So when a salesman says “this will give you a better picture” he is either lying, or doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

Not necessarily, for example, a cable could handle 720p with no issue, and be deemed to "work" but fail to transmit 1080p without data loss, the data loss wouldn't always produce an "unwatchable image" a few white spakles could be tolerated by some people i suppose hehe

What you actually meant is, not the fact if you get a picture or not, (as you could still get a flawed picture) but if the signal successfully gets from a to b unimpeded , then the resulting image will be identical 100% regardless if the cable cost £1 or £2000. :)

The cable represented here appears to be well built, however, i have purchased numerous 99p cables, and most of them are now in the bin

What he said :), i bought 6 of these the last time, and the ones i have tried are perfect, i am talking about lengths of up to 16 feet here anyway, you only need to worry about quality of cable if your going for runs over 40 feet.
