    found an hdmi cable


    it says "certificate no. 3b17-10"
    used google to figure it out. is it hdmi 1.3? older?


    my tv says "never ever use lower than 1.3 it can cause dmg"
    i think its because the LCD uses Deep color, which is supported since hdmi 1.3

    and now:

    found 2 matches..

    Simplay Labs - Consumers
    where it says
    - Category 1 certified standard speed HDMI cable.
    - Compatible with HDTV resolutions 720p, 1080i ,and 1080p


    next here: (german source)
    DELL HDMI/HDMI "HDCP" INTERFACE KABEL STYLE 20276 NEU bei eBay.de: Monitor- Projektor- TV-Kabel (endet 10.01.10 19:40:04 MEZ)
    seller says:
    - certified for hdmi 1.3
    but seems he doenst know what he talks about since next he explains is:
    "max resolution supported is 1080". (in fact hdmi 1.3 is scaleable up to 1440p)


    can anyone give me a small hint, since i am new to this stuff




    thanks

    *edit:

    both cable were found following the "certification no. 3b17-10" and other details printed on the cable

    The cable spec has no changed in any of the HDMI revisions.

    Personally i would not hesitate to use it.

    there is a lot of rubish and mis-information as far as HDMI cables are concerned. A €100+ HDMI cable will not perform better than a €5 unbranded one.

    Not certain that the 1.3 capable even refers to the hdmi cable, more likely the interface on the transmitting\receiving equipment, I know they have now introduced mini hdmi connections for camcorders etc, more info available at HDMI - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia :)
