Re: blu ray and hdmi cables

I've got a BDP-S760 and use the thatcable hdmi (1.5m length).  At £4.99 it is a complete bargain and I can testify to the lovely picture it produces.  As for wiring up the Sky HD - you'll have to use an HDMI for the picture and the optical out for the sound - sorry, Sky boxes are a bit of a pain that way.

Whether the HDMI cables go to your AMP or screen depends on the exact Sony amp you father has and also how many HDMI ins it and the screen has...

AV: Marantz SR7009; Monitor Audio RS-LCR, Silver 8i, RXFX; BK XXLS400 Sub; Pioneer KRP500a; Sony UBP-X800
HiFi: Arcam A85; AE Compact 1; Arcam DV79 (as CDP), ProJect Debut II

I will be upgrading all my cables for thatcables as I have ones that are either ones that came with the item and are cheap and old

I wont spend more than 10.00 each.

I have the subwoofer cable from them, and I have to say its top quality
