I assume you mean 4k?
I love the reviews on these cables.
Meh, buying a dongle over an all-in-one solution is hardly the end of the world. Annoying yes, but I can see why the HDMI Organisation have done it - they're a commercial organisation afterall.
As long as DisplayPort becomes the PC/Monitor standard, I'll be happy.
just make them yourself.. I always do that kind of stuff but using cat cable and the right end connectors- it's cheap and works
this is exactly the kind of ruling that will be removed from law due to the fact that no one will follow it. (USA)
The cables will be renamed as extended adapters.
Almost as bad as HDCP, which was fixed by buying a little box with HDCP that then converted the signal to video with out HDCP.
lol they are just saying, it maybe common sense to all that its just a dongle+cable built in, but in reality, they havent really tested things like, it seems stupid, or for the conspiracy theorists, money making ****, but heck, its how standards were developed, are developed, and will be developed in the near future. live with it, if you like buy all the hdmi to mini display port cables you can find if you are QQ'ing about it too much. or if you want **** the HDMI org with a thousand of petition telling them to test the **** and certify it. end of story
This is the reason why for me. See off any potential competitors
What? I don't even.....
This is out of Pure, Pure greed.
Yeah I actually meant to say 4k2k, but whatever
Still can't get used to referring to it by the horizontal res...
I'm not sure I understand how the cables are illegal. Do you mean to say that due to licensing requirements companies can no longer sell an HDMI-to-MiniDP cable with the HDMI logo on the box? Or is it truly against the law to sell a cable that features an HDMI interface on one end and a miniDP interface on the other?
Exactly, I use 1 & my bro does too wow, what nonesense .
Checked it out & was funny .
oh okay so really nothing has changed because most of those adapter sold that are mini display port to hdmi are in the form pictured above.
Oh well. Guess I'll just throw my cable in a trash can...
Destroying evidence of your criminal act... that is really bad... I have informed the authorities.
While this does reek of bureaucratic analism (not an actual word), it makes perfect sense that HDMI org would try to strongarm DisplayPort out of the picture, mind you HDMI needs a bit of improvement, but really this isn't that big of a deal.
I'm hoping that HDBaseT takes off, so we can all use cheap Ethernet cables.
this made me ROFL:
10.2GB highspeed HDMI cable!
in all the specifications of HDMI not once is speeds in gigabytes mentions. Only category 1 and category 2 (highspeed) HDMI cable. Where Category 1 certification must do 74,5mhz (aka 1080i) and Category2 certification must do 340Mhz (aka 1080p/2160p30)
You can use HDMI extenders that uses cat5/6 to extend over 200meters or optical fibre to extend the HDMI signal path top 300 meters without qualityloss. Yes that is ordinary cat5/6 networkcable, no fancy 24k gold and silver 'angel hair' cables of 1000 dollar. or even 2000 dollar. Only audiophiles (i call them audiophools) and only those people are strong believers of such bogus manufactures claim. Like 'breaking in' a cable. you said what??? breaking in a cable...
There is a great tendency to assume that "something a company might not like very much" is "illegal". In this situation it is, I suspect, at worst an issue over the use of their trademark HDMI logo.
Really, who cares?
The frequency dictates the speed of throughput. A bog-standard HDMI cable at 340Mhz has 10.2Gbit throughput.
