Re: Still more reasons why all HDMI cable are the same

I really like your graphic that shows the difference btw analog and digital. If there are still peoples who can't get it.... just take it as a fact and move on.

Re: Still more reasons why all HDMI cable are the same

great read! Much of it I was aware of but it's a nice refresher. I don't have 1 HDMI over $10. No issues.

Great read. Thanks!

I've posted in the past about my redmere experience. 50ft hdmi w/ redmere... Works perfectly and the cable is thin and flexible. Bonuses all the way around.

I wish I had educated myself a bit more before purchasing HDMI cables back in the day. I was fluffed full of misinformation and ended up paying almost $100 for my first. Really cool looking and neat packaging though.

Glad I could help you and others out. Now, how about offsetting the cost of my ignorance?
