I can only seem to find 1, 2, 4, and 6 meter monster cables...and of course a 2 meter cable is about 6 inches to short to work for me. So, am I screwed? Do I have to buy 4 meter cables and have 6 feet of extra cable collecting dust behind my av rack? Any suggestions?

Go with a different cable mfgr - Monster Cable is overrated and overpriced.

trigger...I hear that a lot. Who would you (or anyone else) reccommend I go with for good quality cables at an affordable price? I need 2 s-video cables, 1 coaxial digital cable, and 1 pair of audio interconnects. Thanks again for any help.

Take a look at http://www.soundcity.com or http://www.audioadvisor.com

Both of them carry a wide selection of quality cables other than the monster brand. Good ones to look for are AudioQuest, Kimber Kable, Straight Wire, MIT, etc.

Prices are all over the map, but there's always going to be one within the realm of reasonability.

BTW: Most companies do only make 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2, 4, 6, and 8 meter cables. Some may have different lengths, but those are the norms.

I honestly would recommend that you just use a standard video cable for your coax connection.... http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/smile.gif

I don't know what your setup is, but Radio Shack equipment is more then adequate for most HT systems. Their equipment will also save you some cash.

is it really possible that the thin cables that generally come in the box are as good as $50 or $100 cables??? Is it all just marketing hype? Maybe so, but I still feel like I should be using something other than free rca cables. Maybe that's why they can sell them.

Radio Shack has lots of decent cables... they have gold connects and are shielded and can compare to Monster. I don't think you'll notice a difference.
