I need some clarification on the video about high speed HDMI cables on Monoprice. Should the cables under 10ft that connects Xbox, BluRay, and HD cable box- to the a/v receiver be 24 or 28AWG w/t ethernet? And the cable that connects to the a/v receiver and the tv should be what AWG?

Doesn't matter. With or without EtherNet? Well, I know of no device that actually uses it, so again, doesn't matter.

At < 10' AWG shouldn't matter. Either should work fine. OTOH... want peace of mind? Spend the extra $$ and get 24.
As stated earlier, there are no devices (that I am aware) that support Ethernet over HDMI, so don't pay extra specifically for that "feature"..

Rodeothor, the only thing to be cautious of when using any gauge of monoprice cable is they are very stiff and get stiffer as the gauge decreases. If you are using them in your rack they don't have much bend and if you do try to make a sharp bend it puts a lot of strain on your HDMI connector. I've been using 28 AWG high speed cables from Parts Express or BlueJeans if my cable length is less than 2 meters.
