HDMI Cables

I just purchased an older model Xbox 360 with an HDMI port.  Do I need to purchase a Microsoft HDMI cable, or can I use one I have laying around the house?

You can use ANY HDMI cable for your Xbox. I'm sure of that.

If it's not microsoft's (or licensed by them) it likely won't work. Strage enough, the reverse isn't true - the microsoft hdmi cable WILL work for normal television, your video player(s), and ironically, even the PS3. (seriously.)

Only really need the offical one if you want to use an external sound system (speakers et al). If it's just the TV speakers you're using you have a bit more leeway.
