Okay. It has been my experience that cable companies will rip you off if they can (Belkin, Monster Cable). My question is this: does anyone know of any reasonable difference between a $60 Sony iLink cable, a $30 Belkin and a $6 one I can by from my local electronics retailer? In addition, from what I have read online, it looks like I need a Male-Male 6pin to 4pin in order to connect my Sony DVR-HC42 docking bay to my computer, is this correct? Thanks in advance.
