Hi,
Is there a such thing as non compatible HDMI cable? I tried to connect Panasonic
BD60 player to Panasonic 58PZ800 using El Cheapo generic HDMI cable and I got error code 72 on the player. Seems like the cable is no good? Any suggestions for
good HDMI cable? Not the Monster braond which is way too expensive.

U72 error on Panny BDs is related to HDMI negotiation. Most likely the cable is bad - ie. something physically wrong with it, or it's of too poor quality.

Cheap for a reason

I've had one bad HDMI cable so far (out of many) - it came with a Sony DHG-HDD500 HDTV receiver. They replaced it.

This is why I tell customers that the cables that come with things are just garbage va..., I mean garden variety cables.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Is there a true difference with HDMI cables? I wanted to purchase a cable recently so my son could hook up his XBOX to our HDTV. I remember these cables costing $75 and up for only a 1 meter length a few years ago and was kinda shocked when I found they were still pricey ($35 and up at Best Buy). A friend hooked me up with a 3 dollar cable (off Ebay) that did the trick. I'll probably go the same route when I purchase a DVD upconvert player in a few weeks. I don't want to loose picture quality, but at the same time my (non-pro) setup only consists of a $400 32" Dynex TV and the cable only needs to be 1 meter in length. Welcome all comments.. .

depends. At 1 meter you are probably OK unless there is a serious issue with a cable, but for longer runs and "harder" content you can get intermittent problems. I had a friend that had a HDMI cable with 3 meters (so not too long but not too short either) sometimes he would get these green spots on the screen, he thought he had an issue with the TV, then the player, but in the end it was just a bad cable
