HDMI 1.3a is good.

What I don't understand is your 2.22 American Wire Gauge. Just get a reasonably priced HDMI cable online from monoprice or blue jeans, or pick a Philips cable up locally from WalMart or Sam's Club.

The version of the HDMI cable is what is important, and 1.3a or 1.3b is what you want to buy. As for gauge, 22AWG is fine. Gauge only really plays a part if you have HDMI cable runs of up to 100ft. For your normal 6-10ft HDMI cable, gauge really doesn't matter.

And yes, as Bill said, order from monoprice.com. They have well made HDMI cables for WAY cheaper than any instore option.
