Home made HDMI Cable

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Ok guys this is my plan. I am tired of buying UBER expensive good HDMI cables. The truth is that if it doesn't cost more then 100 dollars there is some very obvious quality loss in quality.

So my plan is to make my own HDMI cable.

Problem is i don't know where i can find a heavily insulated cable with 10 pairs. Any one had a clue?

As for the connectors im going to us. Well im still hunting.

What are you talking about? I buy $2 (yes, $2) HDMI cables and they output the same quality as all of the others.

HDMI cables are one of those things; if it works, it can't get any better.

I buy the 2 and 4 dollar cables from eBay. I don't see the difference. And yes, I borrowed some high priced cables from a friend just to see what all the stink was about.

Are you insane?

Even if the freaking cable was pure gold and made by Buddha himself, it'd still output the same quality as ****ty/low/medium quality cables.
