Hi Matt,
I have used monoprice for over 2 years now-from audio, video, computer, network and more recently, HD cables. Obviously you work for their competition. Check out their reputation (9.33/10) on www.resellerratings.com if you're such a skeptic.
Sheesh man skip the theatrics and rantings.

Any 1.3a or b certified HDMI cable should work just fine with your 360. I recommend monoprice. They have very quality cables for MUCH better prices than the big names. The best connection for the Wii is component cable and it can only output 480p unfortunately.

xbox 360 is HDMI 1.2v so even if you have a HD-DVD player it can't do master audio or Dobly True. so really any cables because you can't even find 1.1 or 1.2 anymore. oh and 1.1 can't do 1080p just i.

You can buy an HDMI 1.3b cable for 3 cents plus $2.98 for shipping. Overall the cable will be around 3 dollars each and will work for your needs. I bought 3 of them and had no problems with Blu-ray or gaming in HD. No need to buy expensive cables.

- HDMI 1.0 (the original HDMI spec) is more than capable of full 1080p
- HDMI 1.0 is fully capable of hi-res lossless audio like TrueHD and DTS-MA assuming the source device can decode it and send it over HDMI as LPCM/MPCM, and your receiver can recieve LPCM/MPCM over HDMI
- HDMI 1.3 is only needed to bitstream TrueHD or DTS-MA, assuming your source device can send it and your receiver can decode it
- whether player decoded (sent as LPCM/MPCM) or receiver decoded (bitstream) it's the same lossless audio, no difference

I do not own an Xbox so I have no idea if it can:
- output 1080p
- decode HD audio
- send audio as LPCM/MPCM

No need to quote you again. Your previous unnecessary rantings in this thread speak for themselves. :)

Me a high schooler? Hardly, I'm a 45 yo business owner. But we'll just let any/all readers of this thread decide who the "high schooler" is. :)

But, yes, I'd love for you to "school" me on anything business related. Perhaps you could do a conference call to "school" my 11 employees (who have been laughingly following this thread). :)

It's a conspiracy in your mind if you say (quoted a second time):
"Seriously, how many of you Monprice trolls are there? Are there just one or two? Or is there are department with a Director of Trolls? I have to admit it seems you have a whole department and I also have to admit Monprice has a good strategy of having trolls post on any board they can find but for the life of me I don't know why Amazon allows it."

No apology offered. :)

I don't understand the relevance of "e-commerce has a cost". Umm....obviously. My point was if Monoprice sells direct to me, why would I buy the same cable from Amazon (or any other reseller) that is going to mark it up further?
