DON'T pay big $$$ for cables!!!! Monoprice.com has excellent cables at low prices....not to mention (....but I will..;) ) great service!
Save your dough for more important things....like flowers or candy when your SO finds you blew the 401K on a bass boat......(jk!)....:nono2:

I had a DVI-DVI cable that I was using, and bought an HDMI-DVI adapter from Monoprice and there are no issues or problems.

HDMI and DVI-D have identical signals except for audio.
