I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

For the red/white audio this would work better.

Anything you get from monoprice is going to work pretty well. They don't necessarily sell "commercial grade" or "home-theater/reference quality" but they're pretty good.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.

I've compared some of their HDMI Cables to my Monster Cable (that I got Free from a friend) and neither my wife or I can tell a difference so I believe Monoprice definitely has great cables at super prices.
