    Just buy the hdmi cables on monoprice. Get whatever length u'll need they work great. If u dont buy from there your wasting your money on anything else. If your directv receiver doesnt have hdmi then get the compontent cables instead.

    DevilDog speaketh the truth. Monoprice is the way to go. I've bought from them multiple times with excellent results.

    Just FYI, your DirecTV receiver will probably come with an HDMI cable. As long as the receiver isn't going to be too far away from the TV, I'd wait until it gets installed before I went spending a whole lot of money on cables.
