Hey everyone,

I need some help. I have to send my PS3 in to Sony for a repair and the instructions require me to send the original ethernet cable back to them. My house is already wired for ethernet so I just take all those cables I get with new devices and put them all in a box. So, I have a couple blue ones and a couple of black ones. Anybody know if DTVs cables in the boxes of the new HR21s are blue or black??? If I know what they are I can tell which are for my PS3. Thanks for the help!

I did not receive an ethernet cable with my HR21. I do not think that one is included.

Your PS3 came with a Black one I would say around 5-6 ft long.

:what: I would think you would want to know if it's a CAT 5, 5e, or 6 cable...since network cables come in a rainbow of color choices.

I am sure they are all 5e. Most network cables these days are 5e's.

You won't get one with your receiver, I got a 25' cable from monoprice for about $6 shipped. They have different colors so you can pick what you want.

Seriously? I wonder where I got all these cables :lol: . I found a picture online of the original items in the PS3 box. The cable is black, so I am sending them one of the black ones I have. Let me just warn other PS3 owners, Sony is more particular than a lot of other companies about doing warranty work. Be sure you keep all your original box contents and your original receipt.
