    Default HDMI connections

    Hi All,

    I recently upgraded my system components and switched the cables to HDMI connections. I've done a fair bit of research on HDMI cables reading through various forum threads, cnet, BJC, Monoprice, etc.

    This is what I have set up
    Sony Blue Ray - BDP-S380: Connected to Onkyo w/6ft HDMI 1.3A
    Comcast DVR - DCX3400m: Connected to Onkyo w/6ft HDMI 1.3b

    Onkyo AV receiver - TX-NR609: Connected to Sony w/10ft HDMI 1.3
    Sony LCD TV - KDL-46V4100

    The set up seems to work fine now that I have the settings correct in the receiver. Pass thru works fine, Pic looks good from BD and DVR.

    Anyone see any issues with having 3 different cable versions based on my equipment. I have considered getting 3 6footers from BJC at some point to get a little future proofing in, but as of now this seems fine considering the cables were free from comcast

    Any input appreciated

    Thanks
    Shawn

    LOL no I think you're fine using 3 different manufacturer cables. But then again like your BJC HDMI cable idea of using them, I too use those cables.

    I like reading through the posts and learning what I can from it as well as posting now and then. I used to have more time to look around on the net for info and found this to be a great forum with good info and people with similar equipment.

    life gets busy so, not much time for reading the forums past few years. I am left to efficiently looking for information on an as needed basis. On vacation this week so i am getting in some perusing time an figuring out how to setup my newly renovated system
