Unsure as to what cables I need for my new LCD

01-09-2008, 03:30 PM
I am about ready to purchase a Samsung LNT4071F, I think it will be great for XBox 360 gaming, and HD sports. I am very excited! However, I am unsure as to cables/etc that I will be needing. Is it necessary to buy that expensive HDMI set specifically made by Microsoft? I believe it's around $45. I read the HDMI scam thread, and do not want to pay huge amounts for HDMI cables if it's not necessary. I will need to connect my XBox 360 and Dish Network HD to my TV. I do not have the HD for Dish Network yet...I am waiting to order when my TV is delivered. Will Dish Network supply me with an HDMI cable? So what cables should I go out shopping for, and are they much cheaper online..if so where? Thanks!
