    So I was looking at HDMI cables for my cable TV and Xbox and noticed one cable from Phillips said just "Hdmi". The next cable said "High speed HDMI 1.3a". Both were the same price for the same length, and you know you usually pay more for better.

    So it looks like the 1.3a can send data faster, and I read it can do "deep color" (basically just better than RGB?). But is it possibly worth anything in my situation? If not, go ahead and get the 1.3a (assuming it's compatible with what I got)?

    Cool. Looks like I might as well get the 1.3a. Won't help make things better now, but may in the future (or if I get a PS3).

    At Wally world, both cables, regular and 1.3a, were $35. They were by Philps, and I'm not sure what "version" the regular HDMI cable was.

    I know you can get them cheaper on-line, but I was in need for a quick fix :grrhee:

    Puck, I got a question on the A3000. The quickest way to describe the problem, if it is one, is it seems like I have lots of black spots on the screen. It only really shows up on white pictures, or light colored pictures.

    For example, on the 360 startup screen (the white pic with the Xbox logo), these black dots are very noticeable. They are everywhere, and the seem uniform. The uniformity of it makes me think it may just be normal....but I want to find out.

    ^ i'd have to see it
    I don't notice it on the 2020 may have something to do with the Hz doubler
    how large are the "dots" ?

    can you take a picture in macro and post it up ?

    I can take a pic on my camera, but it may not be that great.

    The dots are very small, and there's a whole lot of them. So many and so uniform that it looks like it may just be that way, but I don't remember the units I saw elsewhere having the same problem.....but you really have to see it on a light or white picture to really see it.

    The best way to see it is on the 360 startup screen where it's all white.
