hdmi cable

19 posts in this topic

Wondering what cable you use...monster, sony, belkin for your lcd tv. Just purchased a 46" sony. Those top of the line monsters are spendy. I need 3, but can't buy them all at once. I started with one. Saw at target they carry sony cables less spendy, but wondering if they are of the same quality?

ditto on the cheapest. The reason being is that HDMI is a digital signal so it either works great or it doesn't at all.

Don't waste your money on the Monster brand. Do some searching around on the internet and you'd be amazed at the deals you can get on HDMI cables and they are no less of a product.

The one that came with my DirectTV receiver is cheap and works perfect.

Look on HSOList. I picked mine up for something like $3 apiece. I can't complain one bit.

ditto on the monoprice recommendation. well worth a visit. if you are spending more than $30 for any cable, you're getting ripped (monster and belkin are a notorious outfits, supported by BBuy and others. Like McDonalds and soda, they make their profits on the back-end via cables, mounts, ink, memory, etc...)

you don't need to speed $100 on a cable.

Yep....monoprice is the place to go for any and all cables. Great quality cables for MUCH less money. Do not waste your money on the over priced monster cables. You should see what the mark up is on those! shocked

Thanks for the info. Great prices on cables. So these other cables will transfer the information and color just as good as higher priced cables? I have a 120 hz tv and I want to be sure that I won't have blurring, loss of color, or sharpness because the cables can't transfer all the information.

Yes. An HDMI cable is an HDMI cable. It is sending a digital signal and a $200 Monster Cable is not going to transfer a digital signal any better than the $15 Monoprice cable.

The 120hz does not have to do with the signal coming through the cable, that's all in the electronics of your TV.

    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
    • I've never tried my booya poppin pad crashers Yet but are they really bad or just not as good? Just wondering.
    • Well, I got the bow out today and it took about a dozen shots to get it sighted in then I shot this group at 30 yards.    I am impressed with this CB. The trigger is really thing that I'm not impressed with but I have nothing to compare it to. It seems like there is 40 acres of creep before it releases.
