  1.  Picture degradation on HD Freeview using this cable


    I very much hope I can be of service in highlighting the problems using a good quality HDMI cable with High definition digital TV such as HD Freeview and essentially a forewarning to those people who are currently experiencing problems with HD Freeview using this cable or thinking of buying this cable for HD Freeview.
    OK here's the spill, it is not this particular HDMI cable 'per se' that is causing the picture breakup on the HD channels but all GOOD Quality HDMI cables have a picture issue with HD Freeview reception. Strange as it seems and having experienced this myself, the best solution for HD Freeview is to stick to low quality (and not necessarily cheaper) generic HDMI cables that come with the box or the ones you can buy off the shelf in the supermarket. Also apart from good antenna on the roof, invest in good quality coax cable with good leakage insulation i.e. multi-Screen Shielding with Ferrite suppressors, this also helps greatly and try not let the Coax and HDMI cables touch, keep further away as possible.
    Putting the caveats to one side, I also purchased this cable recently and I agree with most of you, the picture and sound quality of this cable belies it price, the picture quality is sublime particularly for Blu Ray and HD Satellite, crystal clear and good colour definition throughout. Hope this helps.
