    Re: HDMI help

    HDMI is suppose to be backwards compatible with other versions. The most updated HDMI is HDMI 1.3. It shouldn't matter what type of HDMI you run, they will still work with HDMI ports.

    Edit: HDMI is not "forwards-compatible" like I said earlier - I got ahead of myself. A basic HDMI will work between HDMI devices, but newer HDMI (like HDMI 1.3) are suppose to communicate between devices so if you were to turn your PS3 on the HDMI 1.3 would send a signal to your TV and turn your TV on.

    If you only need 6 ft. there will be minimal to zero loss on the cable between the PS3 and your TV, so go cheap and save yourself some money.
