MIKE..

Really depends upon a number of things..
One the actual signal being transfered..
If high resolution video then better cables are suggested.
Additionally..
Cable length also plays a major part, lets say one has a 20' run from the AVR HDMI out to the HD video projector..
Do not get suckered into that you need to get the $250 HDMI cables.
But stick with known, proven brands rather than the bargain bin special..

Just my $0.02..

They don't really cost that much to worry about it, just get the 1.3 Cat 2 certified and be assured for a only a couple of dollars more.
