I moved the HTPC out from my room into the lounge, and now everything works OK except the Mediaworks channels.

Yip that is correct although I just brought a Cable that had DVI one end and HDMI at the other.
As far as the little cable unfortunately not. I grabbed one of the CD drive to Soundcard cables I had lying around and cut the plugs in half leaving two wires at each end. the one I used the wires were just wound together rather then encased is a plastic sheath so it worked quite well.
mentalinc: I am not recommeding or suggeting or saying this works
but you can get dvi to hdmi cables = no need for the adaptor (unless you already have the male 2 male hdmi i guess)
