On HDMI there are several different versions. Later versions are backwards compatible with earlier versions so (at this point in time) you can't go wrong getting the latest version. Well, it will cost more money, but it won't hurt anything. The r-pi is HDMI 1.3a so if you want to max the bang for you buck, buy an HDMI 1.3a cable. It will let you use all the HDMI 1.3a features, but won't cost you for features you can't use (for example HDMI 1.4 can do networking)
For me that is sufficient confusion?
I can't go on Amazon and look for 'an earlier' version?
So go on Amazon and look for HDMI - DVI cable and pick a mid price item (bearing in mine the later advice on avoiding the £.98 items)
What of the power cable? I don't want to power it from my pc,
any recommendations for a 240 - USB 'power' usb cable+plug please?
What current required pls?The wiki still says 7.5v?
HDMI - DVI http://is.gd/HHAgbM
will they suffice please?
Rest are common enough cables
