Its alright I guess, the camera takes much better pictures, just everything seems off when i take it off a TV. I've seen some pretty nice pictures of TV's before so just trying to emulate the quality I guess. No biggie though.

All HDMI cables will look/sound identical to a $100 monster cable.

FWIW cables are where everybody makes insane profit. They make jack sh*t on the TV's, DVD players, computers, etc. They make up for that by selling cables. With cables that carry digital signals, there is almost never any difference between any. Even the most expensive cables are extremely cheap to make. Those $100 monster cables have $10 worth of materials in them at the most. I know it costs me about $4 to make component video cables that work better than the monster ones do.

That's at most, then Monster makes a 200%+ profit in selling them to places such as Best Buy, who then makes 400%+ profit in marking them up to the consumer. Once I have all my HT components picked out later this year, I'll find out exactly what cables I need and order them all online.

QFT! I used to work at a CompUSA back in the early 90's and I remember buying a USB cable at cost for about $2 while the store would sell the same cable for about $29.99. The markup on accessories is outrageous!!

Madden looks pretty good in that pic. I've been wanting to pick that up but haven't had the chance.

Nice pics Bad_Boy. I can't seem to take pics without the flash without them being pretty blurry.

You need a tripod or something to sit the camera on I think.

Yeah, I think it has to be perfectly still. I've seen some mention using a macro mode or something also. Wasn't sure what that does unless it's just using a timer to take the pic so you can take it without touching it.

I can't get anywhere close to the quality you're getting. What are your lighting conditions when you're not using the flash? Not that it'll help me, I tried it both ways and neither came out very well (well lit room and with a dimly light room). I also seem to get almost like a moire type pattern that isn't there when just viewing the LCD. I was able to keep it from being so blurry (when not using a flash) by setting the camera on some boxes and then just dealing with the button to take the picture. I guess that was steadier than me trying to hold it and take the pic.

Darker the room the better I suppose, theres a window where my tv is at that doesnt have blinds on (its kind of a semi circle window) it so it beams sunlight right where my tv is so I'll wait till its darker. I can see the tv fine in day time but pictures dont come out right. Pretty much everything else is auto settings, no flash, and no digital zoom. Tripod would be better with a timer to get the blur out like Marvel_us said.

Also if your tv has a "still" function I would try that, it kinda helped me get better pictures. (though on my last pictures you can see the "still" pop up at the bottom). I took some pictures of fight night but they ALL came out blurry, I'll have to retry those with the still function on later.

Well, I like NBA2K7 pretty well so far. It is taking a little getting use to since the controls are different than NBA Live 07 and I'm use to that one. I like the use of the tilt functionality for the free throws but I'm pretty bad at it so far (only hit like 3 of 8 so far).
