I would suggest you all take a look at IZarc! I was shocked when it wasn't mentioned here.
I wouldn't swap my copy of IZarc for a farm down south.

POPCORN!
About 40 years ago when cable TV came along and then Showtime, we signed on for the service.
We got the movie channel connected and a program guide. My wife was all excited and wanted to invite her folks over to watch our first movie.
I told my father-in-law that I would buy the movie tickets if he bought the popcorn.
They showed up at the appointed hour and my FIL had a jar of Orville Redenbacher popcorn. We popped the corn in my electric popper and enjoyed the movie. My FIL bragged about the quality and flavor of Orville Redenbacher's finest the entire time they were here.
I had to replenish my popcorn supply before the next movie so added it to the grocery list. When I checked the popcorn isle at the supermarket I discovered that a bottle of Orville Redenbacher's finest cost about the same as four movie tickets. On the same shelf was a one pound plastic bag of JollyTime popcorn for 29 cents.
I opted for the JollyTime, came home, refilled the Orville Redenbacher jar with the JollyTime, hid the bag in a lower drawer, and placed the jar in the cabinet where it was usually kept.
Showtime came around and the folks showed up as usual. And as usual, we broke out the popcorn popper, which I dutifily charged with a shot of fresh kernals from the Orville Redenbacher jar. We watched the movie and enjoyed hot popcorn, Redenbacher's finast from the JollyTime bag. Everyone commented that you could really tell the difference when you bought the best. I agreed!
Until the day he died my father-in-law ate JollyTime popcorn from an Orville Redenbacher jar, raved about it's flavor, and enjoyed every kernal.
I buy nothing but the finast! <G>

That's how legends are made!

Do I need monster HDMI cables?
No, HDMI monster cables are simply a monster rip-off.  If a cable is HDMI certified, it will by definition offer you a perfect digital signal.  Despite the fact that the electrical signals traversing an HDMI cable degrade as a cable gets longer, it will still offer perfect digital transmission so long as the signal loss or distortion is within a certain tolerance.  Analog cables might benefit from extra thickness and insulation because there’s not much you can do to fix analog signal loss or distortion other than to amplify and maybe filter the signal a little to mitigate the bad side effects.  But when it comes to digital technology, the signal is either all there or it isn’t.  There is zero measurable difference in the digital signal quality between the $6 HDMI cable and the $60 monster HDMI cable.

Caveat Emptor!
