Ok, question about HDMI & HDMI Mini (again, sorry)

#1RawePosted 1/1/2014 7:32:18 PM(edited)
What is the different between 1.3 and 1.4? I want to hook up my GTX 570 to my 39" HDTV 1080P and want to ensure a clear fit, does it matter if I get 1.3 or 1.4? Thanks.

Also, should I get this, and will it ensure True 1080P HD?

I see, so 1.4 is only for 3D, so since I don't use 3D, I won't need 1.4.

I was just reading 1.3 supports all of the 1.4 features, except for the ethernet function, when would that be used exactly?

If you have a 1.4 cable and a pair of devices that support 1.4, then say one device is your Blu Ray player and one is a smart TV. If your Blu Ray player was hooked to a switch/router via ethernet, it would share that connection over HDMI to the TV, and the TV would be able to go on the internet too.

Pretty pointless really, all it does is save a switch port.

The rub is for some elgal reason manufacturers aren't allowed to put what version a cable is on the packaging, or the cable itself for that matter. So it's pretty much impossible to know which one you've got without testing the feature set.

Ahh ok, thank you. I'm going to be hooking up my PC to my HDTV thru my GTX 570 via HDMI (as you have noticed in my previous topics) and want to make sure it's outputting TrueHD quality 1080p. Bsically the highest quality it can produce. So 1.3 is the way to go eh? (if a cable says 1.3 I shouldn't worry and just it reight?)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI#Version_1.4

You can read about the versions there. 1.4 adds some new features, but odds are you aren't going to need any of them.

The key thing to note is that as I said, manufacturers are forbidden from putting the HDMI version on devices and cables. This makes it harder to know which one you're getting. Make sure it says "high speed", and see if it lists the features on the back. If it says it supports ethernet it's a 1.4 cable. You might as well get a 1.4 cable as it's not going to cost anymore.

I was reading the specs of my tv and noticed its 1080p/24hz. Does that mean I cant run it at 60hz so I won't get 60 fps from playing my pc games?

no. the 60hz is implied. its just saying that it allows you to watch movies which were shot at 24fps at 24fps
