X1 cables

#1ste_1Posted 10/5/2013 2:26:21 AM
Just wondering if anyone knows how long the hdmi cable is that comes with the X1 ? My x1 will be about 1 meter - 2 meters away from tv so unsure if i need to buy a longer cable.

Also i need a new ethernet cable will i need a Cat5e or a Cat6 im unsure of the difference .

I have no clue how long the hdmi cable will be, but if I were to guess i'd say about 2 meters. It makes no sense to put a 1 meter cable in there. Based on previous purchases, i'd say they wont go cheap with the cables. You can easily Expect 2-3 meter hdmi cables.

Hdmi cables are cheap to make. The cables that they used with launch 360s were heavy duty and they looked expensive, so I expect about the same quality when it comes to the Xbox One.

Cat5e or 6 will work just fine, but it's always best to install the best cables. Cat6 has twice the available bandwidth as cat5e and prevents external noise interference much more reliably. There are currently no publicly available applications that require the extra bandwidth that cat 6 provides.

I'm pretty sure in the unboxing video they confirmed the hdmi cable is 2 meters.
