I have these cables running from my monitor to my desktop PC:
- audio to speakers
It gets worse if you have audio to microphone.
3-4 cables running from A to B is dumb. I know that HDMI includes audio, but it's hard to get resolutions over 1920x1080 with HDMI. And, no USB.
I wish DVI had included channels for USB and audio. Then I could have a cleaner space behind my desk.
