To be completely future proof you need an HDMI 1.4 or 1.4a it is ready for 3D if you decide to go there it is designed to carry the internet at super fast speed, it also supports ARC and many other features. But how much, Not £80.00 thats for sure. the salesperson must have thought you hadn't got a clue, and has try'd to rip you off.
I bought one of these a few days ago. It came with the Samsung Blu-ray Disc/DVD player, and I also bought a Humax HDR-Fox T2 PVR.
The man in the shop advised me to buy a £40 HDMI cable for the Blu-ray. He said to stick with the HDMI cable that was packaged with the Humax, though.
The question is: should I buy a better HDMI cable for the Humax? If so, can anybody suggest one, please? I'm completely new to all of this and don't know how to interpret the descriptions on Amazon. I'm willing to pay for a good one, but don't want to pay more than necessary. If you can make some suggestions I'd be very grateful.
