    That is odd... The only interuptions I experienced was when an call would be coming in, the same time Tivo was making a daily call... Would show up in the menu as a failed connection...

    Retailer's love Monster brand cables more than you. Now, don't get me wrong, Monster makes a consistently good cable, but you are paying way, way, way, too much.

    I have a close relative who used to work in the private label sourcing side of Best Buy. You would not believe the unbelievable amount of margin Best Buy made on monster brand cables. He told me that Monster does so well based on the amount of branding they've got and the amount of margin that is passed to the retailer. He also said that cabling and other accessories are the "french fries" of electronic retail.

    There are many other cable brands with the same or better spec's that are considerably cheaper....up to 50% for the same quality and length cable is very common.
