xbox360 + hdmi
« on: December 28, 2008, 11:37:52 AM »

Let's get this out of the way first... yes, I bought Microsoft.  Thing is, got a 60GB for $150 plus an extra controller, play and charge kit, something else for an additional $50.  Tough to turn down plus I didn't have to figure out how to talk the wife into letting the boy have a new 10/22 for Christmas.

So here's the question.  Does a standard HDMI cable work on the 360?  I've read a bunch of threads out there and I know there are spacing issues given the proximity of the ports on the unit itself.  But I *think* I'm gathering that's only a problem if you're trying to run HDMI video and optical audio.  I sure as hell don't want to buy a M$ HDMI cable for $50 if a $15 Monoprice cable will suffice.

Anyone?

Wow.  Compared to Nov. '07 they have reduced their prices as much as 50%.

HDMI 1.3a Category 2 Certified CL2 Rated (For In-Wall Installation) Cable (24AWG) - 6ft (Gold Plated)  -- $15.03 to $9.98

HDMI 1.3a Cable male to male 28AWG - 3ft w/Ferrite Cores (Gold Plated) -- $5.38 to $3.96

Woot.
