    As the title, I am looking for around 7m in length which is easy enough to find,CPC have them but there seems to be a choice. I am connecting HTPC to TV so am I looking for anything special or will anything pretty much do?

    Anything will do mate - as it's a digital signal the actual cable itself makes no difference. Don't fall for the 'gold plated super expensive cable' being better - it's just a con :thumb:

    Indeed cheapest one you can get, digital signals are either 1 or 0 . Word of warning make sure the build quality is good. Though this isn't dependent on price.

    I picked up a 10 metre hdmi cable from eBay and it's working fine no issues what soever and it cost me £7

    The Cablesson IVUNA range are decent - well made cables and reasonable price :)
