    Note: the inclusion of HD cables w/the 622 is incorrect. The tech portal info on the items included with the 622 should be corrected hopefully. Unfortunatly, most installers will not bring the required HD cables w/them

    The way this is worded you can take it to mean the installer is intended to provide only one of these cables. That being which ever is required for the install job. And, that makes a lot of since for Dish. They should not have to foot the bill for cables that are not used. I would like the description to state that fact rather than imply the cables are shipped in the box.

    I have an install scheduled for Saturday and I intend to show the list to the installer if he says he does not provide the cables. Let him work it out with Dish. I do have a backup cable if I have to produce it. I won't let that stop the install from being done. :lol:

    This is a big deal. HDMI cables are running $100 for a 4 ft. length right now at Best Buy, Circuit City, and Comp USA. I know cheaper ones are available over the web, but I'm talking numbers for the instant gratification types among us......

    I'm not very gratified by paying $150-$200 for cables when I only need a $10 cable (including shipping) to get the job done.

    I picked up a HDMI 6ft cable for $90 at BBuy the other day - not Monster but the quality is very good. I think the brand is called Advanced something...the salesman said there was no difference. Monster was almost 2X as much. Besides, I think you need to have eagle eyes to tell the difference between the two brands. They have the same warranty for anyone who cares.

    I just priced a 6' HDMI to DVI cable. The total including priority mail shipping is $10.49. As "ARNDUC" asked has anyone had any experience with this business?

    I have heard from other people they work fine. So far I have not been able to verify it myself. I ordered both an HDMI-HDMI and a Component set but they have not arrived yet. My 622 install is tomorrow so hopefully they will get here today. I have another cable to use if not.

    They also sell cables on ebay for .99 but they charge more for shipping on ebay sells. I think ebay may still be a little cheaper. That's where I got mine.

    I hope to be able to verify it for you in the next couple of days.

    According to Dish, the installer is responsible for bringing the HD cables. If they don't, get Dish on the horn.

    I purchased a 10' DVI to HDMI cable from monoprice last week that arrived the day of my install--2/21. They work great in the few days I've had them.:) No problem at all with monoprice as a seller. I bought a USB hub too--total price including shipping was $19.37.

    Good deal! ...but I am old school in some ways. If I don't see a contact mailing address on a website, I skip right away.

    I get most of my cables on E-Bay. Stores are WAY overpriced with this stuff.

    I stand corrected. I was looking at their Contact page. I'll give them a shot one of these days.

    Thanks.

    Anyone who tells you that there isn't a difference doesn't care and wouldn't notice! I assure you that there is a difference, ESPECIALLY in cases over 6ft! The loss of sound and color is very visible in HD on a 61" TV. It's worth the money if you have it to throw away...

    i have purchased many cables, speaker wire, etc. from monoprice including hdmi to dvi, hdmi to hdmi, digital audio and Y P Br component cables. The price is very low and the quality and workmanship of the cables is top notch. When i had my second 622 installed by the dish installer, i handed him my ten foot hdmi cable (Monoprice PID 2504) to make the connection. He said "nice cable, where did you get it?" I told him. when i told him the price ($5.24 + S&H), he almost passed out.

    Monoprice sells top quality stuff at an unbeatable price with excellent service.

    I can't see why anyone would pay $90 or more for an HDMI cable of average length.
