What's the difference between v1.3 and other versions?

Posted this in the £4.01 hdmi cable thread:

http://www.highdefdigest.com/news/show/853


So, after all that, what does HDMI 1.3 truly gain the HD DVD or Blu-ray consumer that couldn't be gotten from any of the previous existing versions of HDMI? Frankly, not a lot. 1.3 offers the ability to transmit extended color ranges that don't even exist in the source, and makes available the delivery of raw audio bitstreams that are better off decoded inside the player first anyway, after which they can be (and currently are with great success) transmitted as uncompressed PCM by any version of HDMI. Honestly, the only real innovation that HDMI 1.3 allows for is the enhanced lip sync correction feature, and there's no indication of when or how that might be implemented.

If you were buying a new HDTV or A/V receiver right now and wanted to feel thoroughly future-proofed, it certainly couldn't hurt to make sure that they're HDMI 1.3 compliant, but there's no reason to feel nervous or cheated if they aren't. At the present time, for all practical applications, any version of HDMI is perfectly capable of transmitting the best that Blu-ray or HD DVD offers just as well as any other. Unfortunately, HDMI 1.3 is more hype than substance.

I love the specs on that one bob! :-D


# Gas-injected dielectric for optimum signal strength and ultra-low loss
# High-density triple-shielding for maximum rejection of RFI and EMI

But what about the triple phaser bank projection coils or the hyper-inductive dylithium crystal matrices? :giggle: .

Nice one Mike - thanks for the explanation!

The official Xbox 360 component cable works perfectly on the Xbox360 for me.

That's on a Hanspree LCD TV. It's quite surprising how good the picture is, it's on par with my Sony Bravia which cost £1700 last year!

Just letting people know in case they are after a cable for the Xbox360/LCD TV :thumbsup:

R u serious? £90 for a HDMI cable? U must be crazzzzy!
#10
Crazy Fool!:p

there are some cheapo cables that arent 1.3 compliant though and v1.1 and 1.2 could potencially not transmit 1080p. 99% of em do however but if I had to put my life on a cable transmitting 1080p I wouldnt use a 1.1 or 1.2 compliant cable !

- but I'd never spend 90 quid on one !!!!!
#12
i got this cable and it is very good......well built and looks very expensive!!!
#13
There's no point in buying this - buy the £4 one that's already on HUKD and you'll get an identical picture. Don't waste £11! :)

Quality cables usually do make a difference to picture/sound quality. However, that difference may not be seen/heard because it may of been linked to budget or inferior equipment which often is unable to send/receive detailed information.

I think you are confusing HDMI with scart or component cables. Digital is digital. HDMI leads will either work or not.

My brother was so proud of the picture he got with his £70 HDMI lead until we plugged in my £5 one. Absolutely no difference whatsoever!
#16
I'm no scientist, and i agree that in theory all digital cables should be the same, but from my experience they are not. I used to work in a hifi store and could hear differences between digital and optical cables going to good hifi.

It's basically the same argument that gets peddled out that burned audio cd copies should sound the same as the originals, as you're dealing with digital information. However, anyone with a decent hifi should be able to hear the difference, i know i can, and they do not sound the same.
#17
It's all to do with common sence, the quality of the cable is "normally" better in a £35 than a £5 so if you want the best, plus what hi-fi do rate digital cables! Just don't spend silly money on cables like £70-£150 because that is realy not worth it!!

I demonstrate, advise and sell the latest technology. If I ever confused HDMI with scart or component cables I'd lose my job.

So you would make much more profit by selling more expensive hdmi cables?

No wonder you advocate the use of the far more expensive ones :roll:

I'm quite certain the 1.2 standard includes 1080p considering that's the standard the Xbox 360 (Elite) uses and they sing the praises of 1080p over HDMI. The only difference between 1.2 and 1.3 is the transmission of the HD audio codecs over the cable and it's doubtful many have the hifi system to decode that anyway.

I do not advocate the use of the far more expensive ones. I never even mentioned the word expensive which doesn't guarantee quality.

Yet another one who not only reads posts incorrectly but makes false implications about someone they don't even know. :roll:

I think you obviously only need to worry about signal quality when transfering data over a longer distance say 10m+. Even though HDMI is digital so its less of a worry anyway...

I have actually purchased this cable months ago from Play.com for £9.99 and would not pay over £10 for an HDMI cable anyway - its silly tbh. It is excellent quality and very well made / robust...the price has been fluctuating the last few weeks...
#23
Yep...bit of a rip off if you ask me!
