Post removed Great prices and their cables are as good as any others.
elizabeth- meaning turn on the tv first and then the dvd player, did i get that right? and thank you for your recommendations....i have everything plugged into the shunyata hydra for conditioning...
Elizabeth, having numerous HDMI/DVI connections, I can say the only time I ever had an issue was when I broke one of the connectors on one of my HDMI switchers.... What are you using that you have to do as you describe??? You should not have to turn things on in any order, nor make the connections in order either.
Try Lots of different cables to choose. Prices were cheapest I found. I have used their cable for over a year without any trouble. I did not compare other cables with this one, but I do not feel the need to replace it. Can't think another cable would improve anything this cable does. Brian
Lots of people use monoprice or bettercables. I sometimes run into issues with my cable box if I change inputs on my tv when I come back to the hdmi connection all I get is staticm turn the tv off and then it is fine again. This all started after a firmware upgrade by the cable company, used to be fine.
Harmonic Technology makes a great HDMI cable for a resonable price.
I bought a 5 meter cable for around $150.
Over at AVSFORUM people are real giddy over monoprice. I just got a box load from monoprice and I have not hey had a chance to try them. I think that for digital they will be fine and the price is fantastic, and way beyond belief.

Thanks for clarifying that for me Elizabeth, fortunately for me I haven
t had any such problems, but I am using different gear.
I have been selling a Philips HDMI cable for 3 years now with great response. Remember the HDMI is digital so error correction takes out the problems associated with most typical cable problems. My 6 foot cables sell for 42.95 + 4.95 shipping.
FWIW I have had good luck with the HDMI cables, and they are dirt cheap
Recently I put a $20.00 CALRAD brand hdmi cable on a friends new Sony LCD with a $200 Sony DVD player and the picture looked almost identical to a good quality component cable. We tried 3 different cheap to fair to good audio cables and the Calrad HDMI was as good as any of them. I think the limiting factor in the above setup was the low cost DVD player and just using the stock TV as audio output. Anyway, my motto is try the cheap stuff first, it sometimes is satisfactory.
Let us know how it works out, thanks, Mike.
There are "clear" differences in HDMI cables. I've tried 4 different cables from 4 different companies and find the Wire World top of the line cable (5.2) to be the best. The picture this cable creates on my sony sxrd tv is simply awesome.
sherpa- how much is that cable?
i hear ya cheapmike, i appreciate your suggestions.
