How about when you bend the little metal part inside and S-Video cable?

I F-ing hate that. The cable it RUINED at that point. S-video is a nightmare.

That's where Monsters lifetime warranty comes in handy!

Not when you are knee-deep in an install and you just ruined the ONE cable you needed to make things work and it takes 24 rack screws to be screwed and unscrewed to put your rack rails in and access the back of your gear....

(you don't think I am bitter do you?)

Well I guess when you go High End you have High End problems!!

My fear is the 40' HDMI cable run through the walls & over the vaulted ceiling & bending one of those pins!!

Or that's when having the ability to make your own cables comes in handy (Naval Cryptologist, A+ Technician, and PARA certified - at one time) . I make cables using Cat5 or Cat6 - great cables!!!!

Funny story that my friends still give me grief for. When the original Playstation came out, I went out and bought one. My roomate and I were hooking it up and I needed to get behind our cheap entertainment center to hook up the cables. So I sat the PS on the ground in front of the entertainment center and proceeded to start to move the entertainment center away from the wall.

My roomate asked if I needed help, and of course I said no, I got it. Well, the e-center had a 27" CRT TV, various other a/v equipment and was kind of heavy. So I got the old Sauder moving on the carpet by gently rocking it, and being cheap, it had a natural sway to it. Well, as I lurched forward another inch, the 27" RCA TV tips out of the center and falls directly on my unplayed Playstation, completely crushing it. It was absolutely destroyed. Only one thing to do then - go back to the store and pony up for another one.

That has been my biggest cable-related disaster to date. I am much more careful now...
