I am looking for a good 1.3a HDMI cable.

I looked and could not find any mention 1.3 HDMI cables.

I have a PlayStation 3 60GB, hooked up to Onkyo S7100 Home Theater system to Toshiba 37 in 720 HDTV with an HD set top box as well.


I know the TV doesn't support TRUE HD so I don't need the 1.3 HDMI cable, but I will upgrade my tv to a true 1080i.

Link to Onkyohttp://www.us.onkyo.com/model.cfm?m=HT-S7100&class=Systems&p=i

* HDMI v1.3a Repeater (4 inputs, 1080P compatible)
* 1080i Upscaling powered by Faroudja DCDi Edge
* TrueHD, DTS-HD Decoding
* Slim, 7.1 speaker system with 290W powered subwoofer
* Powered Zone2
* Includes RI iPod dock
* Includes 1pr of speaker strands

It supports a 1.3 and so does the PlayStation 3.

My TV is the Toshiba 37HL67 REZGA http://www.tacp.toshiba.com/televisions/lcd/product.asp?model=37hl67



I have looked around the web and can't seem to find any major brands that flat out tell if the HDMI is 1.3 or 1.2


My current set up is the 360s HDMI cable, which I am sure is only 1.2 since the 360 is only that and a cheap Inland cable I got from Fry's.
I work at Fry's and just saw Monsters' rep show, and tell us about the cables, but even on their over priced cables I didn't see 1.3 written on it.

So if anyone has any links to any cables or know of any good ones please let me know.
thanks for any help.

Well I talk to a supervisor at Fry Electronics. He said most HDMI cables are 1.3, and if I want support for 120Mhz I have to get the Monster 1000 cable which is like 120 bucks.

I checked the Inland cable I did buy and sure enough it said 1.3 on it, and I found a cheap 1.3 cable at Frys.

So now I have the HDMI I got with the HDTV tuner on the PS3 and I don't see it saying 1.3, but watching Iron Man it goes from 30Mbps to 50 at one point.

If anyone has any advice about cables or anything then let me know.
