So should it come with a Scart, Component cables as well then? Jeeez, you got a nice angled cable instead.
the DM800 lead is not a normal dvi-hdmi lead, its specially wired to also carry sound
Thats just being plain cheapskate..how much does a basic HDMI cable cost ? Not a lot...surely TM can afford to provide one witrh the reciever.
Even clone Dream recievers have a basic cable for connecting to a TV, 500's have a RGB cable, and 800's have a gold plated HDMI - DVI, standard SKY+ recievers have a basic HDMI 1.3 cable included...
The M-Vision HD300 doesn't come with an HDMI or a Scart Lead, neither does the Spiderbox or any Manhattan or Technomate receiver, Linux or otherwise. Most other receivers don't do either and all Panasonic DVD/Blu-Ray players don't come with an HDMI lead. The reason for this is partly due to costs incurred by the manufacturer and using a cheap HDMI lead to hook the receiver up to your 50" 3D Full HDTV isn't really going to do the picture or the equipment any justice unless of course your satisfied with it dropping out occasionally as the lead is manufactured with poor quality connectors and cheap cable. I'd personally go out and spend a few quid on a decent cable knowing that I have the best quality available and not having to worry that it could be better. You wouldn't go out and spend £1000 on a Hi-Fi and use the cheap cables that come supplied with your £500 CD player and be entirely satisfied with the performance.
