I've been saying this since day one! I wish they had kept something like DVI-D that allowed you to screw them down. FWIW you haven't lived until you break off the little circuit board that is inside the female end of an HDMI connector...... It's a truly religious experience knowing your attempt to connect your new device just ruined it! Fortunately I have only done it on a switcher that was under warranty (Gefen was kind enough to honor it too!) but it really put a damper on my fun that day, not to mention the emergency trip to BB for a temporary fix to the problem........
I of course fear this EVERY TIME I have to connect these damn things now, so I guess I am an HDMIaphobe!
