You won't see much difference with regular cable TV over HDMI. The source signal is garbage so you'll still see garbage. Garbage in, garbage out.
Depending on your TV set, you may or may not even get an improvement of your HDTV over HDMI/DVI then with component - but hey, if your TV has HDMI, you might as well use it.
Also, return the monster cable HDMI. $10/20 HDMI/DVI cables perform exactly the same. Digital is digital - you either have 100% of it or 0%..a higher grade sleeve plastic or extra titanium-copper insulated housings really don't do anything under normal operating environments
