Advertisements Well I've finally upgraded to HD with a Philips 50 inch plasma. Now it's time to feed it correctly. My modified DSR6000 (going strong for nearly a 3/4 of a decade) is OK, but definately doesn't do justice to the TV. DirecTV is installing an HD20 for free. I understand I'm going to hate it because of the lack of dual buffers. Hopefully D* will fix this. Here's a few questions: Cables- I notice that HDMI cables on eBay are a lot cheaper. I suspect that it's because they bypass the royalties that more legitemate companies must pay. I don't like junk cables, but also don't buy into the monster cable hype. Is there a source for cheap, but good cables. Is length a significant factor (10 ft vs. 15 ft.)? Mods- Can any mods be done to these? 200 hours seems like a lot, but I figure HD recordings could eat up a lot of that pretty fast. PS- Before flaming me for not searching, remember that I was on this board counting down to the release of dual tuners while you were in high school.
