    Where did you buy the cable? I tried 4 different cables, nothing works.

    i bought this one on ebay: 6 Feet Micro HDMI to HDMI Cable for Blackberry Playbook | eBay

    works like a charm. wish i would have gotten longer but i think that's the reason why my last cable crapped out, it was like 25 feet.

    spend the extra couple bucks on a decent one,,, Bluerigger is well made,,, i've been using a 10ft/3m one for a year, no issues,,, i always leave it plugged in on the tv side in the hdmi3 slot & just connect when needed...

    Nope, always kept it nice and wound. Barely ever used it either.

    Not wound too tightly I hope. That will also destroy a cable. Especially if it's wind and unwind.

    I use the blue rigger ones too, good quality for a decent price if you ask me. Price does not always equal good quality - for example Monster. Monoprice also makes some good ones.

    Yes, I've had a monoprice hdmi cable hooked permanently to a monoprice hdmi switch box (with remote) for over two years and just plug my pb in. The cable is one of their 10 footers. I use a harmony remote to control whether I watch TV, Tivo, PB (and I just added the z10 with another cable) or listen to the receiver (radio). The hdmi switch box makes it all possible since my older sony only has ONE (sniff) hdmi socket!

    I Work inside a music studio so yeah, definitely done right and like I said, it was barely used and still crapped out. Price or quality I don't think it matters much with cables like these that aren't commercialized as much as say USB cables. Definitely don't trust monster.

    I've got a manual hdmi switch from them (didn't think I'd want a remote), but now I'm wishing I paid more for the remote, or dug deeper at least. Right now I'm looking (not very hard) for an auto sensing hdmi switch. Might even try to build one myself if I ever get off my arse lol
