Monoprice rocks.  They have a great reputation in the AV circles as being a
source of excellent equipment and good prices.  I use them extensively for
LAN and networking products and learned about them from an AV/Networking

I buy for Dealextreme also and respect them as a vendor, but not for good
quality audio gear.  Some of their stuff is good and some is junk.  It's
kind of like Harbor Freight.  I have not found anyone who can beat Monoprice
for consistent quality and price.

John - Was the cable used to connect the computer to the TV a standard
monitor cable, HDMI or DVI?  HDMI carries audio and video.  DVI and the
Sub-D (standard monitor cable) only video.  DVI is a plug with lots of pins,
and one wide horizontal pin on one end, whereas HDMI, kind of looks like a
USB with truncated corners on one long side.  Adding the 3.5 mm plug for
sound is what you need.

OK, I looked it up from work.  This online store was recommended to me and
they have a ton of different cables.  I didn't look to see if they had this
specific one or not.  I buy computer stuff from, they might have
the appropriate cable too.
