Ok, so I splurge for the Monster DVI400 Cable to connect my brand new 61 inch and my brand new Samsung 931 DVD player.


Guess what? The cable has a flared rubber side to it and the plug on the TV is recessed. IT WON'T FIT!!!


Can anyone recommend a cable that can be purchased at a CC, Tweeter or Best Buy?


BB had one in the computer section (Belkin) but I guess I fell for the Monster Marketing pitch as I didn't buy it. Will that one work?


Thanks gang!

Thanks! Lot's of rain and wind and the worst won't hit for several hours.



The Belkin was $70 vs $100 for the Monster.... Damn I hate to get hornswagled.

CW,


I would take the $70 Belkin back and go the CompUSA or some computer store and get a $20 DVI-D single cable.


There is NO difference in PQ on any short (under 15') cable, reguardless of brand, quality or price.


I started a thread a while back and it's been tested and proven. A $20 cheap copper vs. a $400 fiber-optic cable. Same PQ on both. The only difference is in longer runs over 15'. Then it either works perfect, or not.
