HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) is a specification that combines video and audio into a single digital interface for use with DVD players, digital television (DTV) players, set-top boxes, and other audiovisual devices. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video plus standard to multi-channel surround-sound audio. HDMI benefits include uncompressed digital video, a bandwidth of up to 5 gigabytes per second, one connector instead of several cables and connectors, and communication between the video source and the DTV. It transmits all ATSC HDTV standards and supports 8-channel digital audio, with bandwidth to spare to accommodate future enhancements and requirements. Instead of using multiple of the two dozen connectors on the back of a home theatre component, you use just one HDMI connection. HDMI offers two big benefits: - Instead of needing multiple cables for the video signal and multiple cables for the sound signal, HDMI integrates all video and sound signals onto a single, thin cable. It makes it trivially easy to connect components together. - Instead of converting digital signals to analogue (to run through the cables) and then back to digital, everything on an HDMI cable remains in its original, uncompressed digital format. HDMI 19 Pin Male Connector

Our range of HDMI cables are 100% compatible with all Hi-Definition Standards (720p,1080i & 1080p) They are also HDCP Compatible (High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection) - the content scrambling standard used in all current TV/Satellite and Cable boxes/DVD/Projectors etc.

We are so confident in the quality of our cables that we supply a LIFE TIME WARRANTY.

Thats a load of rubbish, HDMI works with digital signal so it does not get interference unlike analogue cables (Scart etc.) having gold on it does absolutely nothing apart from making people think they are getting a better product.

You still get a better conductivity with gold plating whether its digital or not, so valid observation IMO. And as you know gold does not corrode like other materials that may be used in other cables connectors.

We've heard the arguement a million times now so we all know that a digital signal either works or it does'nt.

Excellent deal.

I was wondering who'd be the first to say that HDMI either works or it doesn't and the gold plating makes no difference.
Does the same principal apply to my digital phones and Sky digibox which are both prone to interference?

Guys, my local Richer Sounds tried to flog me an HDMI DVD player and cable and priced the cable at £30, claiming that the cable shouldn't be skimped on. I bought a non-HDMI player anyway (Panny multi-region for £65 inc. the 5 year warrantee) but could use an HDMI cable for my 360 to free up the composite connection.

Will a cable as cheap as this really be any good/do the job? I balked at paying £30, I'm no mug when it comes to shopping.

Im i bit of an idiot, sorry. I have an xbox 360 and a new LG lcd tv, i dont think its full hd but is it worth me buying this cable to improve the picture??

Appologies for my caveman knowledge on this subject

It's not just the conductivity, plugging in connectors which don't have gold connectors (or similar) may lead to a capacitive effect on the connector which may lead to a filter of very high frequencies.

There is an argument over whether this would be noticeable to anybody but there is a measurable effect. Voted hot etc.

I read a website last week on PS3 HDMI cables which said they all do the same job and advised people not to fork out a fortune for the official PS3 cable and to shop around for a cheap alternative!

It's all to do with line attenuation. The longer the cable, the weaker the signal gets until it's unusable. As long as the signal is usable, it doesn't matter what the "quality" of the cable is. On a 2m cable, having a super high quality cable won't make any difference because the lower quality cable won't affect line attenuation. However, if you have a longer cable, say 15m, you'll need a higher quality cable to avoid attenuation.

This is why the HDMI standard doesn't have a specific cable length limit. If it works, it works, but if it doesn't, a better quality cable might work.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI#Cable_length

Gold plating is useful in that gold doesn't deteriorate when exposed to the atmosphere like other metals do, it prevents the connector from becoming tarnished; you wouldn't want gold inside the cable where it's sealed off from the atmosphere though, as copper conducts better.

Here we again.... why do people get out of their prams evertime someone puts up a post for HDMI leads! It gets really tiring... :whistling:
#22
there is ment to be a slight better picture with a more expensive cable Monster Cables, QED and another i forgot the name of have good reviews in what hifi magazine

just depends on how good a tv you have and whether you willing to spend £40 on a cable? you'll pay £900 for a 40" so whats an extra £40 for a cable to improve your picture?

peronsally i only have these cheap ones but i just ordered a new tv 40" samsung 1080p so a better cable might improve the picute even more!? only time and £40 will tell
#23
I've got a decent cable for my PS3 but will use a cheaper one for Apple TV. I doubt theres any difference if I matched them on a 42" Panasonic Plasma.

Only works out good deal if you're already buying something else to get free postage.
#24
I just selected supersaver delivery instead of the next day delivery and it came up with free postage

Only free postage on it's own. Add anything else and postage gets added.

Is HDMI noticeably better than using the HD component leads included in the 360 box? It looks fantastic as it is.

Yeah my 360 has a hdmi port.
#27
I have a cheap hdmi cable for a surround sound system on my tv and it keeps going out of sync with the sound and video, will one of these cables cure this?
#28
im pretty sure this has already been posted?
#29
Bought this back when I got my PS3, very good quality, no quibbles :)

might be chord

i paid £20-30 (rrp 50-70) for some hdmi cables, some are 5m but then i had a custom fit which included connecting them to my tv between the walls and also in/out of tall cupboards....i opted for sturdy build quality ones from qed and chord.....changing them would either cost £100's to resintall or hours of hassle/my time...so an outlay of £20-30 was insignificant to the time spent on the install alone, not forgetting the money spent on the pionner tv/onkyo amp/keg speakers

i wouldnt buy another cheap hdmi cable after the cheap one from play.com connected to my son's tv fell apart last week...ever since ive had it it just wouldnt seat/connect properly (might have been unlucky tho)

I'm already aware and am convinced.

I brought 3 of these cables a few weeks ago at £2.54p each. I was surprised at how solid they were for the money. Most of the High Street shops are charging at least £10 each for cables that are sometimes inferior to these.
#33
Voted hot, excellent deal.
#34
for some reason its gone up 2 £4.90
#35
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/130507 That link is to a £3.99 1m hdmi cable. The deal link is to a 2m hdmi cable and is now £4.90 still a great price for gold plated hdmi cables so take your pick. :D
Voted Hot!!
#36

#37
These are now back on offer - £3.55 and free postage (super saver).
#39
