If you buy more than 1 shipping is even cheaper, so the overall cost per hdmi cable goes way down.

Are you referring to the "used" one for $0.99? That's not in your title.

Anyways, if you have prime, the new ones are $5.90.

Hmmm, cheaper to buy the new one with free shipping or buy a used beat up one for slightly more.

These are cheap knockoffs. Buy the real thing or name brand, believe me, they are worth it.

@djspawn00: Hes talking about the actual xbox device, both he cable and the device are made to look like the xbox ones.

@wickedd365: Name brand cables are totally worth it? Do you even own an hd tv?

With the audio adapters, the bit that plugs in above the HDMI port if you want to run a separate audio line to your stereo or headphones, the third-party models have been known to cause problems. Most notably, if you change inputs on your tv without powering down the xbox, then flip back, it can force the xbox to reboot, thus losing any progress you may have on a game you left on pause. So, in this one isolated case, there is actually a good reason why you MIGHT want to pay extra for the official MS branded adapter.

These are official Microsoft HDMI cables. There just isn't a listing on Amazon for the official cable.

@djp519: It's not the cheap cable it's the fact that you have both cables connected at the same time.

Here's a quote for the relevant parts:
"I have the same problem. It's actually the Xbox... Question are you using AV cables to get Optical audio? I'm using the Component AV adapter sliced up for just the Optical output and HDMI. It restarts when I switch components.

From what my understanding is, the Xbox automatically detects when you switch to and from HDMI . And if you have the AV cables hooked up also it switches to the next connected mode which is: Component. The problem is the Xbox requires a restart when it switches modes.

If i take off the Component AV adapter, and just have HDMI the Xbox will not restart."

Don't be retarded! A new cable is less with Super-saver shipping @ Amazon!

@zapp brannigan: Actually I think djp519 is talking about the cheap audio adapters that are sold that are erratic with the connection. You can have the HDMI plug in the entire time, and when you go and wiggle the audio breakout box, it causes the XBox to reset because the connectors pressure fit contacts short out the other pins, making the XBox think you instead have a Component/Composite breakout box instead.

I have never had a problem with OEM XBox cables, and I seamlessly switch between TOS-Link and L/R RCA stereo plugs all the time. What that has to do with video mode I have no idea, since this deal is for an HDMI and Audio breakout box, not a Component/Composite cable.

Do note, the only way you can tell if it's an OEM cable and Chinese knock off, is by looking at the hologram seal, the Chinese versions have a hologram, but it is wholly different from the authentic ones, design and all.

@ressie: No I have the exact issue he has with my Xbox. It's not the switching of audio. I have this cable set for sell and it does the same thing. My xbox will not turn on unless the HDMI is selected on the TV, I used to be able to have my xbox boot then switch to the console, now I have to watch the splash screens. If I switch back to my dvr my xbox reboots. I think these cables are thinking the RCA audio out has video with them so even though there is no yellow port.

Could it be the cheap cable? Maybe, is it a PITA? Most definately. If it wasn't for my kids breaking my optical audio port on my sound bar I wouldn't have this issue but I am still trying to find out what I can do.

monster cables are over rated.. just like dr dre beats headphones.. but the only ones buying them up, are teenage angst kids... and their parents. if you buy either, you know nothing about headphones or cables....

Just hook your Xbox to your tv via HDMI, then run the optical out from your tv to whatever device you want to get the sound. Problem solved.

@wickedd365: When you finally make the transition from analog(RCA/S-Video) to digital(HDMI), the need for high quality cables is no more due to the way the information is transmitted.

Yes I have an HD TV. I have a 47" LCD 1080p and everything is hooked up via HDMI. I have used cheap cables before and they suck. I have used expensive cables before and they too suck.
I used a Dynex on my Xbox and Blu ray player and it was trash. Fuzzy and pixelated. The Monster was nice, but I noticed alot of lag with the Xbox. I picked up a Rocketfish and have never looked back. Paid the full $60 for the first one but now get them off eBay for maybe $10 max. Clean, crisp, fast picture and NO Xbox lag.

@wickedd365: Xbox lag, huh? Here's how to avoid that. Make sure your fancy Rocketfish/Monster/SuperSupremo brand cables are perfectly straight. So if you a have 6 foot cable, put your Xbox exactly 6 feet from your HDTV. If you coil up any excess length in the HDMI cable, you'll get lag. Why? As the signal flows through the cable, any coil in the cable will subject those electrons to centrifugal force causing those electrons to move to the outside of the cable. That slightly longer distance is causing your "Xbox lag".

@wickedd365: You talk about pixelation and lag... You are either a good troll or the dumbest person in this whole discussion. The only difference between cheap cables and high quality cables are the shielding and the connectors. Other than that the signal is the same. CNET uses cheap cables from Monoprice on all their gear and they have no problems. If it's good enough for AV professionals without a budget then it is definitely good for you.

@wickedd365: $60 for HDMI cables? What did you do, buy 60 of 'em? There's no reason at all to pay more than $2 for just about ANY cable. There is no difference in the signal; if there were, they couldn't be sold as HDMI cables.

Buddy, I'd really recommend you do a simple 5 minutes of Googling before throwing away $60 on a cable next time.

This is useless for those of us with ancient 360s that don't have an HDMI port... The title made it sound like it was an adapter for old xboxes to use hdmi.

This is for the digital audio dongle for those of you who don't have a slim 360.
