HDMI cable

I just purchased a Sony ST5000 soundbar and waiting for delivery.
Do you guys use the HDMI cable that comes with the soundbar or use a “better” cable?

Use the stock one--rumor has it that Sony knows a few things about digital signals. HDMI works or it does not, there is no "better"--why digital signals are used and analog went away.

If you want to know more, look up how HDMI works, maybe start off at hdmi.org.
So relax and enjoy your soundbar, if you ever get snow on the xreen then worry about the cable at that point.

Enjoy!

Thanks. I will use the HDMI which comes with the sound-bar.
Surprisingly, there was no HDMI cable with the TV (Sony 85 X950G).

Questions:

1. Is there a way to “normalize” the audio output? There is a setting with my new TV called Advanced Auto Volume. When I tried to enable it, it says “Available when sound is output from TV speakers”.

2. The subwoofer connects easily with the soundbar with steady green lights on the sub. There is an option to connect using Secure Link. What is this Secure Link?

3. Is IR the only way for the remote to control the soundbar? I have FireTV stick ask well as Nvidia Shield 2019, I added Harmony Remote and they work well.
