I am having a problem, with my HDMI Cable. Here is the problem. I have an HDTV, I have my HDTV connected to my cablebox, using and HDMI cable. I am using an HDMI cable that I bought from Monoprice, it is a standard cable, at least that is what I am lead to believe, from the different articles that I've read on the Internet. My problem is sometimes when I am changing channels on my cable system sometimes the sound goes out, and for some reason, there is always one channel that I can go to, that will bring the sound back. My question is, if I buy a "High Speed HDMI Cable," would that solve my problem? I have checked with my cable company about the problem. They gave me a new cable, but that did not solve the problem, and I don't think that they gave me a High Speed Cable.
Thanks In Advance for any help given.

I've never known an "high speed" HDMI cable to change anything, other then the price tag to be honest. If you needed something like 20'-30', then ya I might spring for something of better quality. But if it's a shorter cable, there is no need for it. Honestly, it sounds like either you cable box is being screwy, or possibly your TV. Have you checked with another device/port on the TV to see if it happens on everything you attach?

This cable company, will, send you a free HDMI cable to disprove the myth, on HDMI cable pricing.
They clam their free cable is as good as any cable in existence

Have your cable company come out and check your receiver, and the signal-its usually free. I strongly suspect the box to be the culprit. I had to replace my receiver last year because even though I had a good signal, the sound to my TV kept cutting out.They say technology slows down for no one. I know it outruns my wallet. I figure its because my wallet isn't light enough yet.
