After three years of letting XtremeMac and Belkin provide the "official" HDMI cables for the Apple TV, Apple has now released its own version -- the HDMI to HDMI Cable ($19), which was quietly teased in early Apple TV promotional images but not announced until Apple's Back to the Mac event in October. Billed as a 1.8-meter or 5.9-foot way to get high-definition digital video and multi-channel audio from the Apple TV to a connected television set or receiver, the cable has nothing fancy relative to same-priced Belkin options and less expensive third-party ones, using a device-matching black glossy plastic and matte rubber color scheme with plain connectors rather than the gold-plated ones some companies offer for the price. Apple's HDMI to HDMI Cable works with all HDMI devices, including recent HDMI-equipped Mac minis.



Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
