Which HDMI cable?

by cobrachilde / April 13, 2009 10:17 PM PDT

Hey there everyone...

I'm new to HDMI technology and have a HP Pavillion Dv7-1050ea entertainment PC and wish to connect it to my HDTV through HDMI.

Both the TV, and laptop have HDMI ports, and was wondering if anyone could give me advice on what cable to buy, and any other tips that may come in handy.

your help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.
