    It’s 10pm And You Need A HDMI Cable – No Problem This Week in Vegas

    TechCrunch TV is using a LiveU mobile pack provided by our partner Ustream for our live streaming coverage from CES. Our camera connects to the pack via a HDMI connector cable.

Actually, of all the places in the world to have this happen, we were… Read More

  • Is Sony Ditching Component Video On Future PS3 Models?

    Is Sony Ditching Component Video On Future PS3 Models?

    Component video’s glory days are behind it. Sony might even be getting rid of it on future PS3 models. But, if this is true, it’s likely more to do with the Blu-ray’s restrictions than Sony’s hatred of the average consumer. Kotaku posted a screenshot of what is supposed to be info on a new PS3 release. The important thing to note is the statement that indicates the PS3… Read More

  • Bow Before The $2,200 HDMI Cable!

    Even if you had the money I’m not sure we should go recommending things like this. It’s the AudioQuest Coffee, a $2,200, 40-foot HDMI cable. That works out to $55 per foot. Not even Alexandria at its height would have supported such excess!* Read More

  • Was HDCP Just Cracked?

    Potentially big news here with respect to DRM, our rights, donuts, etc. Supposedly the HDCP master key has been released. Effectively, that means the copy protection found in your HDMI connection (which prevents you from easily copying anything going through that HDMI connection, including Blu-ray discs, over-the-air HDTV broadcasts, and so on) has been cracked. Maybe—things are still… Read More

  • Don't Fall For The HDMI Marketing Blitz


    Most of us know that big-box HDMI cables are generally not worth any more than the packaging they come in, but yet they can cost in some cases hundreds of dollars. Sure, it’s shady, but snake oil A/V cables are nothing new. Gary over at HD Guru just posted a fantastic article where he goes into the different schemes used by cable manufacturers to trick consumers into believing they need… Read More

  • HDMI coming to more netbooks in 2011

    HDMI can be found on a few netbooks right now, but it’s set to become standard next year when Intel’s Cedar Trail-M platform hits the tiny lappies. Most of the current netbooks with HDMI are built around Nvidia’s ION GPU platform, which also drives up the cost. But by moving HDMI support to the CPU, it should come on nearly every netbook.

  • Citizen CrunchDeals: 10-foot HDMI cable for 74 cents plus $2.95 shipping

    CrunchGear reader Steve Jabs seems like a reasonable and trustworthy guy. Patient, too, as he’s been reading the site for quite some time now and clearly hasn’t removed our feed from his RSS reader in a fit of rage over one of the many half-assedly researched and grammatically baffling posts that have graced these virtual pages for so many years. Steve alerts us to a ten-foot… Read More

  • Atlona has some nifty swivel HDMI and DVI cables

    I’m a sucker for products that make installing A/V equipment easier and these cables from Atlona do just that. The ends swivel to allow for tighter mounting against the wall. You see, some cables feature large, cool looking ends that don’t like to bend against a wall, which then pushes the flat screen out a bit or forcing the installer to cut into the wall. But these cables bend… Read More

  • Today is 'Free HDMI Cable Day' (plus $5.99 for shipping)

    HDMI cables are the new fool’s gold. And by fool’s gold I mean “things they sell at Best Buy for $30+ that you can get on the internet for next to nothing.” Read More

  • HDMI over Powerline by Averlogic

    Now this makes sense. Can’t you see the future when all you need to do is plug your new flat-screen into a wall outlet and the video will magically appear on the screen? Averlogic has a system that’s not that advance, but can still send 1080p24 video with 5.1 audio over standard power lines. Both ends of the transmission of course have a box, but hopefully someone, somewhere is… Read More

  • DIY: Speaker and component cables

    Making A/V cables used to be a hobby of mine. That was before HDMI took over my gear though. But just a few short years ago, all my A/V equipment was hooked up with homemade cables. The process is easy enough as long as you can use wirecutters and crimpers. Speaker and audio cables are the cheapest to make as they generally do not require any special tools but component cables aren’t… Read More

  • Mini HDMI connector developed, the future looks bright

    It’s looking good that HDMI might become a standard port on small gadgets if the new connector is approved. The prototype mini-HDMI connector (far left) can transmits all the data as its full size counterparts, but is significantly smaller. How small? It’s half as small as the current portable size and even a touch smaller than micro USB. Somehow the 6.4mm wide connector still has… Read More
