I'm just wondering how smooth it went. I just got the stupid thing at Christmas and now the HDMI output isn't working. I called and figured out the video reset which got the AV connection working, but the HDMI still would not work. My question is...I was told by one guy at playstation that it didn't matter what type of HDMI cable I connected with. In fact, he said "the cheaper the better". Then I was told by some girl, a short time after (when I phoned to set up a return) that if I do not use a PS HDMI cable I will have voided the warranty. Unfortunately I have not used an PS HDMI cable...will they still fix it under the warranty? Any other thoughts I should keep in mind when shipping? Thanks!
