I just replaced a $95 Monster component video cable with a $12.99 GE from Target, and guess what? My crappy picture problem disappeared! Same type of thing happened with my expensive Monster subwoofer cable - all kinds of short circuit humming if the cable was moved just slightly - replaced with an inexpensive one from Radio Shack, and what I thought was a problem with my Velodyne evaporated. Big money for junky product, IMHO. Anyone?
