Hmm sorry but won't it be better to run HDMI to home theater amp and then another to the TV? I heard optical doesn't carry all the sound from blu ray disks

Re: HDMI cables. Do not buy one from BestBuy/Future Shop. They overprice it so much. Look for cheaper online alternatives.

I believe we ordered our's from the US. Low price (<$5), does its job, and long lasting - still using them after 3 years.

Agreed, i bought mine years ago when i didn't know any better and went to Best Buy. Far too expensive

Friend of mine who's an expert in this sort of thing said there is literally zero difference from the top-end HDMI and the low-end HDMI. What you should end up paying for is the length of the cable.

On a related note some of the reviews on this $1000 HDMI cable are hilarious:

well i got an LG blue ray player for $50. It has wireless capabilites (although i was dissapointed i couldn't just get on youtube like the store employee said i could). HDMI cable for $7. All in all it's quite nice.

Fucking Gmail is so stupid. Obviously my recovery form isn't going to match what you have on file, I HAVEN'T LOGGED IN FOR 3 GOD DAMN YEARS!!!!.

I understand security, it'd be great if someone was actually trying to get in who wasn't supposed to be, but I'm just trying to recover some photos I had on there. How the hell am I supposed to remember the exact last day I logged in or names of the emails I've received.

it's just so whack. cities like new york, paris, they deserve this kind of thing. they got the character needed to make it incredible.

while ryry got some of the most character out of the schools i've visited, it's just not comparable, and ridiculous.
