Default Gold HDMI CABLES??

I bought what was supposed to be the best type of cables for my 46" plasma but I've tried a couple different ones and can't seem to tell the difference?

Could anybody tell me the benefits of a certain type of cable and what exactly I should look for?

Thanks FORUM!!

Hello,
We can find many types of cables which can can be used with networking and telecommunications related devices. These cables are basically the link between a device and the power which makes that mechanism run. Such types of cables include different types like optic watch, firewire, serial, and fiber optic.

Thanks

I concur...and have been involved with many, many field and lab tests proving that there is no difference between the pricey cables and the ones that www.monoprice.com sells.

I am having lots of trouble with distrance over HDMI. Contrary to what one wanna-be cable expert on here says, 10 meters, roughly 30 feet really is pushing it. I cannot get 3D to my projector with my current setup. I have ordered a repeater in hopes it will help. I can see BD (1080p) but not the 3D signal. I talked to Denon and that is what we discovered by moving the projector close to the rcvr and connecting a short HDMI, the picture was great. I even tried using the HDMI over Cat5 and that didn't work either. Hell, I even tried using a different 3D BD player.. nope, no signal.

I limit my HDMI cables to 15', anything more requires a repeater. Too bad analog cables will not work for this (component).

Thanks for the response, my friend. I had a huge argument on here with a member that claimed 30 meters was the limit even though the HDMI.org claims 30 feet! A long cable can work and sometimes does but not in my situation.

I will keep you posted on this. Thanks again!

I've had success with 25' with an LCD setup, but I wouldn't go any longer (even with a 22AWG cable) without a repeater. Projectors seem to be more problematic when it comes to cable length. I remember reading quite a few threads about projector owners having a lot of trouble with even a 10' HDMI cable without some sort of active cabling solution.

There's no maximum length in the HDMI spec - there's just a requirement for adequate signal strength. The 30 meters that was referenced was, in fact, mentioned on HDMI.org, but it's referring to using active cables and boosters. There's no way that a plain HDMI cable would work at that length! Here's where that was probably pulled from:

A lot of time with the use of a high speed cable connection and she could have me babysitting regularly instead of using the call wave connection cable.

It's a single cable that carries both video and audio.
HDMI: Stands for "High-Definition Multimedia Interface." HDMI is a digital interface for transmitting audio and video data in a single cable. It is supported by most HDTVs and related components, such as DVD and Blu-ray players, cable boxes, and video game systems.

While other types of A/V connections require separate cables for audio and video data, HDMI carries the audio and video streams together, greatly eliminating cable clutter. For example, a component cable connection requires three cables for video and two for audio, totaling five cables in all. The same information can be transmitted using one HDMI cable.
