Sorry if this is the wrong section. I want to try to get some short HDMI 1.4 cables to go from receiver to bluray/cable box, etc. I don't need 3 foot cables, I really only need about 6-18 inches. Does anyone make 1.4 cables that short? I don't see them anywhere. Thanks

Try Blue Jeans Cable. They have lengths from 1 foot-100 foot and prices are reasonable.

Vanco, BJ(mentioned above), Amazon Basics and MonoPrice all make "half meter" HDMI cables... You have to search in "meter" instead of inches. I know of nobody that sells an "18" HDMI"...but you'll find ".5 meter" Matter of fact...here's one... http://www.amazon.co...eter hdmi cable

And oh yeah...there is no such thing as "HDMI 1.4 cable". You buy... Standard Speed High Speed High Speed w. ethernet Those three are your choices.

1 meter seems to be the shortest HDMI cable that most online retailers have. I know you can buy 0.5 meter HDMI cables from some places. Maybe try Mono Price?
