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?

Hi,

HDMI stands for High-Definition Multimedia Interface

Yes you can connect your computer, as long as it has a hdmi port on the computer.

As long as you get a card with a built in HDMI port it should be fine, and as for cable length, that depends on how far away the machine is from the TV, but any length you think will be suitable will work fine.

No CAT6 is for networking and will not do what you want.

HDMI stands for "High-Definition Multimedia Interface". Many PC's already have video cards that include an HDMI output, and you can directly connect those to your TV. The HDMI interface includes audio, and some also LAN. If your PC doesn't have a video card with HDMI output, and you don't want to buy one, then you can also get adapters that convert your Video card's DVI output to HDMI. So with such an adapter you could go from DVI to HDMI. But here you'd have to separately use your sound card's outputs and feed those to the TV via separate connectors, as DVI doesn't include audio output.

Cables are available in shops at different lengths, just get one that suits you best, and no, CAT 6 isn't used for this.

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....

No. Simply look at the number of wires in the cable...

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