Just installed cable and have a question due to blurry image
I know the tv is definatly 1080p so suspect i hope the cable as not 1.3
When on my V+ box I have it set at 720wide I get a good sharp picture but when have it set to 1080 wide the picture becomes blurry

think I may have discovered the reason for the blurry image but if someone can confirm that would be great.
If a normal broadcast(SD)is being shown you get the slight blurry edges mainly if text is on screen, but if you watch an (HD) program it seems to sharpen up does this sound correct this only happens when you watch through the hdmi cable

When viewing HD, HDMI and component should be the same (I prefer component for its better color saturation but that's just me) SD will look like crap but then again depends on the tv.

Are you sure it's actually an HDMI cable? I did a search on "E52534-D" and the results came back as a firewire cable.

Don't know for certain it is an hdmi cable it certainly has the connections at either end but can't see the company that sent it as a free cable, giving away anything more than they have to, so you may well be right about it being firewire. Am going to bite the bullet and get one thats definatly 1.3a just thought would wait and see what they sent on the off chance it was ok

The firewire cable is going to be a little smaller at the ends then the HDMI cable.





Firewire cable.





HDMI cable.

Thanks for all the info just recieved a proper hdmi 1.3a cable and the cable is a bit thicker so looks like they did use a firewire cable
