So, this HDMI cable thing is way more confusing than I thought, or maybe I’m just making it seem that way. I hope there are some of you guys are hardcore HDMI-Cable-Nerds so I can get some help with this, so that I can take full advantage of my fairly expensive goodies.
There seems to be many versions (HDMI Cables) and the older ones do not have ethernet capabilites, and heard that a version 1.4 doesn’t mean that it has everything (features) that 1.3 has, and some are not “high speed”, which is required for 3D content, or was that a ethernet capable one that is required for 3D? … or does “high speed” = 3D + ethernet? Supposedly 1.4a is the version that is must-have, for the latest and greatest, but 1.4b recently just came out with no (that I can find) specifications for it. I can go on and on.
All I want to know is will the (3D) T.V. that I have just purchased (that was manufactured in early-mid 2011), and a 3D Blue-Ray player (also manufactured in 2011), and AT&T UVerse (HD/3D) set-top box work (look/sound/feel/taste) as they all should be with this:http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10250&cs_id=1025008&p_id=6106&seq=1&format=2#description
Thanks for helping me clear things up.
EDIT: Also, I was wondering if, say, I have an adaptor/extension (Female to Female) to turn two 6ft cables into a 12-footer, and both the cables are of the exact same type/brand with the same features… would it be possible that the adaptor not be able to carry over some of the newer features/signals of the cables if (the adaptor) is old/generic? Or it shouldn’t matter?
I never thought T.V. can turn into something so complicated.
