Say,

Please explain what HDMI stands for?

We have a 46" LED full HD Philips monitor with the HDMI kind of input - can I connect my computer to it using HDMI connection?

What card will I need for a regular PC & what length cable you think I should run to achieve this?

Lastly, can CAT 6 be used as well for the same thing or not?

Tx. I understand that Cat 6 is for network, but can one not use this cable and just make the connection across it? Logic for this is as follows: Cat 6 cable is in place and saves running alternate cable....

Certified around 12 meters, but it will probably work beyond that.
