    When you subtitle your article "How the designers of the HDMI standard screwed up, and what's to be done about it", then you better bring the goods in the text itself. Anti-DRM warriors can stand down, however, as Audioholics review is a purely technical analysis of the limitations of the physicals of HDMI cables to do the job required of them over distance. Interestingly, the increasing move to 1080p and the new HDMI 1.3 standard exacerbate the issue by increasing bitrate requirements while doing nothing to increase physical reliability of the HDMI cable itself.

    Cool, I was thinking about getting a long HDMI cable to connect my PC to the TV. Im using a 10m VGA cable at the moment and quality is a little fuzzy under normal use, but in games and DVD's with a lot of motion, especially were the picture is dark, the ghosting is unbearable. Im hoping HDMI can solve that.
