Pogiboy67,

There are a lot of options out there, and some relatively inexpensive ones as well. You will, however, want to make sure that the cable is rated at a v.1.3 or higher for CEC capabilities.

Which one...

I have two choices:

1. Monster... Ultimate High Speed 1000, 15.8 Gbps, 1080p+, 120/240 Hz, 14-Bit Color, Monster 3D, Dolby/DTS-HD
or
2. MonoPrice item #4965

As far as I can tell, the comparable features on the MonoPrice are:
- Supported Resolutions: 480i to 1080p
- Bandwidth: up to 340 Mhz (10.2 Gbps)
- Deep Color: 10-bit, 12-bit, and 3*16-bit (48-bit RGB or YCbCr) color depths. ?x.v.Color??
- HDMI Spec: 1.3a

Does this mean that the MonoPrice will definitely handle the 240 Hz, and will the limit of the 10.2 Gbps hinder the experience? Also, the Monster is 14-Bit Color... I don't get the MonoPrice color comparison.

Please help.

skippyoz,

Many others have posted here about cables.

You will want a HDMI v.1.3 compliant cable for the HDMI-CEC capabilities and compliance (Anynet+).

The cable itself won't "handle 240Hz" because no source is offering 240Hz. All of the source signals are 60hz (Blu-Ray, cable/sat boxes, game consoles, DVD, etc), and are upconverted to 120Hz or 240Hz (depending on your model) after it reaches the television.

Just plugged it in last night for the first time, using the MonoPrice.

It looks fantastic. Just stunning.

I can't imagine it getting any better, so I think I'm returning the Monster.

Monster

Monster cables are way overpriced. Many of the cheaper cables are made by the same mfg.

Just like gasoline. All the brands come out of the same refinery.

Take a look at this offer. Its $8.99, gold plated, double insulated and guaranteed to meet the forthcoming 1440p specs.

To quote one buyer wo also has a Monster HDMI cable: "...the overall picture and sound that it offers is excellent. Switching between this and a Monster Cable 500 offered the same picture and sound quality, with no noticeable difference."

Amazon:

$90.00 or $9.00......it's your choice. Amazon has many many more, ranging from $0.01 up.

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?
