1885 = Medicine show comes to town, vending who knows what concoction of noxious chemicals into "tonics" that are as apt to sicken and kill as to act even as a placebo, much less fix anything. Millions are suckered into purchasing out of outright ignorance and naivete.

1985-2010 = Savvy scam artists like Monster Cable make billions of dollars bilking ignorant and naive consumers with huge rolls of "litz oxygen-free copper braided interconnects" and $1,000.00 rolls of 10 gauge speaker cable. Semi-understandable logic in the analog era when impedance and ohms/resistance over distance runs were a legitimate concern. Amazement sets in skeptics minds when business becomes even larger with the advent of the digital era when consumers fail to grasp even the most simple rudiments of A/D and D/A conversion processes and fail to realize that any cables in the digital realm, as long as they are the correct resistance, can transfer any digital signal perfectly. Consumers continue to ridiculously pay billions of dollars for premium digital interconnects in a vast retailing conspiracy that not only manufacturers but vendors of all sizes and levels happily participate in.

Long live the $300.00 "gold plated ultra performance mega heavy duty" HDMI cable!

You managed to under-exaggerate how ludicrously expensive some sellers of snake oil price their HDMI cables. This range starts at over $300 for a 0.5m cable (about 20 inches for the metrically challenged). A 10m version costs $1,222.55 although it is out of stock & on 2-3 week delivery so they are either flying off the shelves or the manufacturer is waiting on a delivery of pixie dust.

Just a friendly reminder that this site is an *information resource* and not a ranting platform.

I doubt that anyone in our audience actually falls for the over-priced cable market, and besides,
the topic of this thread is the new HDbaseT cable format. Can we dispense with the snark and
get back to the natural spirit of DV Info Net, please? Thanks in advance.

I'll happily re-open this discussion if anyone has anything helpful or informative to say about HDbaseT.
