Good price. Heat added.

Good reviews too

Cool - a connector gizmo that I don't have in my box o' bits!

Though in this instance i'm not sure it's worth it as a speculative purchase.

Thanks mrmr25!
Ordered a couple!

Couldn't agree more. At $2.15 it'll sit well in my box of numerous dirt cheap HDMI cables.

Please be aware of the connection options when using one of these!

On devices with a horizontal HDMI connection, the cable will drop down; this is usually good if used with a TV, but maybe not so good if it's connected to an AV Receiver etc, if the cable will drop straight onto a solid surface such as an AV Unit or floor etc.

If the device's HDMI slot is vertical, the cable will go to the right (as you look at your device from the front). This will be good or not depending on your particular situation.

I use mine on the back of my Yamaha AV Receiver and it has vertical HDMI connections, so sends the cable off to the right (as I view it from the front), which in my case is good as my sources are to the right of my AV Receiver. They are great gadgets, but they might not be HDMI 1.3 as they don't work with my 4GB Xbox Slim.

yep, decent offer, thanks.

I would suggest right angled cables instead of this as your now added two further connectors into the route of box a to box b.

That's good. I think that negates cable direction issues I mentioned above.

Why? I've ordered dozens of items from DX and never had any problems.

Handy!!!, Even if you never use it........

Thanks. I have a cable sticking out the side of my set, this should tuck it away nicely

Anyone know if these are 1.3 or 1.4

Mr Hunter

Anyone know if these are 1.3 or 1.4


I'm not sure but I don't think it matters too much (technically it probably does but...)
I recently purchased a 3d tv and was told I needed a new 1.4 hdmi cable which they tried to sell me for £80 but when I got home I tried the hdmi cable I bought in 2007 and it worked perfectly I also tried a 1.3 cable and that also worked so if that's why your asking I don't think it matters

they wont be 1.4 not a chance

Hmmm, not sure if sticking another (cheapo?) connection-point into the HDMI line is such a great idea.
If you have to because of wall mounting or such like it might be better to just buy an HDMI cable with a swivel end built in.

For anyone interested these guys are great & do proper top quality stuff, 180' swivel ended HDMI 1.3 cable with gold connectors for £4.10 (plus P&P) here -
kenable.co.uk/pro…934

the same in HDMI 1.4 for £5.10 (plus P&P) -
kenable.co.uk/pro…236

(and I'd just add that I have no connection of any sort with this company, I have only ever been a very satisfied customer)

Have a read of this.
reviews.cnet.com/271…age

could do with this as the HDMI cable sticks out quite far from my graphics card in my pc so this would stop it having to be bent away from the wall :)!
thanks OP

Price is okay nothing startling. Purchased some before Christmas over here for around £2. Plus these guys take weeks to deliver. Finally make sure its a 90 deg you need not a 270 deg, I speak from experience.

mrmr25

......um, yes and ?

If you look again you'll see that I posted links for an inexpensive HDMI 1.3 cable with 2 swivelling ends for £4.10 and an HDMI 1.4 cable with 2 swivelling ends for £5.10.
Certainly nothing like the rip-off of the £20 - £150 cables some seem to imagine do something for their system.

Are you trying to tell me they are 'expensive' HDMI cables?

If you want they also do 1m gold ended HDMI 1.3 cables with straight ends for £1.69 (+ P&P).
kenable.co.uk/pro…832

Perhaps you missed my original point (that adding connections into the chain is not the best idea)?
I've yet to encounter the system (digital or not) where adding in additional connections did anything but degrade the signal, however small, it sure as hell never improves it.
Do you know different or something?

no such thing as 1.3 or 1.4 cables. Its just a matter of certification process that some have.

A 1.3 HDMI will still allow 3D but at 1080i resolution for 3d whereas 1.4 HDMI will allow 1080p for 3d. For many sources/movies there will be very little noticeable difference but there is a difference.

I got my 2m 1.4 cable for about £4 from savastore a few weeks ago (I brought a Hard drive at the same time so had free delivery).

so your TV refused to display at 1080p with your HDMI 1.3 certified cable and when you plugged in your apparent 1.4 certified cable your TV now displayed the content in 1080p?

Make up your mind Niz; you've contradicted yourself in the space of 2 posts!

The ethernet channel does not exist in 1.3 cables; ergo for all 1.4 features to work this connector must be 1.4 compliant.
In an ideal world this connector would have all inputs connected to all outputs. However you can't rely upon this, as ommiting pins 14 & 19 would be a perfectly legitimate manufacturing short-cut if 1.3 compatibility was all the factory was asked to produce.

Edited by: "TehJumpingJawa" 3rd Jan 2011

Being a digital signal, it's either on or off, despite what a salesman tells you it doesn't make a blind bit of difference whether you have a £1 HDMi cable or a £100 HDMi cable.

If it was an analogue signal I would say definitely spend more...

you still have not answered my question. You said resolution was affected in your case where as the explanation from that website I linked to suggests only Ethernet data functionality will work or not. You must have an old old cable if all you can achieve is 1080i.

Okay I accept that they may have missed out the pins, but lets be honest the reason why most peoples HDMI cables work are because they are over specified on manufacturing even if they have not been certified to the newer standard. I don't actually know if you can certify a cable to 1.4 this is what wiki states are the cable definitions:

wikipedia HDMI

As of HDMI 1.4 specification, there are following cable types defined for … As of HDMI 1.4 specification, there are following cable types defined for HDMI in general:[63][64] * Standard HDMI Cable - up to 1080i and 720p * Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet * Automotive HDMI Cable * High Speed HDMI Cable - 1080p, 4K, 3D and Deep Color * High Speed HDMI Cable with EthernetCable manufacturers officially are prohibited to market the cables by HDMI standard version (for instance "HDMI 1.4 cable") - the cables are distinguished in bitrate support only.

I suspect mitman is referring to the limitation imposed upon HDMI bandwidth when using pass-through devices that are only 1.3 compliant (such as sound system A/V Receivers).

In this instance it's the hardware inside the A/V Receiver that is incapable of repeating the high bandwidth signal used for 3D @ 1080p, not the cabling at all.

I completely agree with you regarding cables - most, if not all 1.3 cables are perfectly capable of carrying the 'High Speed' HDMI signals.

In PC networking terms it's the equivalent of passing 1000BASE-T over standard cat-5, rather than cat-5e. It works perfectly well over both, though cat-5e is 'strongly recommended'. No doubt in a professional environment you'd want cat-5e 'just to be sure'.

oh right yes it was Mitman my fault. Yeh devices I can accept are limited by specification, must suck if you own a nice Audio amp that cant pass through high bandwidth, wonder what solution people have to that.

To be honest, I never tried a 1.3 cable with the 3D TV. I got the 1.4 cable delivered before the TV was delivered so hooked it up, so never gave it a visual comparison.

The 1080i only applies to 3D, otherwise 2D will be in 1080p.

I got the cable after advice from my mate who is a movie nut and knows his audio/video stuff.

I agree with most that you should get the cheapest priced cable you can get your hands on which is why I only paid £4 for the 1.4 cable.

If I ever get 3D from sky I will stick to a 1.3 because sky don't output that high a resoloution anyway,
