UE40D6530 & Humax HDR-Fox T2 -- HDMI leads advice

by DigitalPiglet / July 22, 2011 7:06 PM PDT


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.

Don't Get Riped Off

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.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
