Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
Yay for cheap cables! I always cry a little when I see people buying $30 hdmi and usb cables from best buy…
beaglebone hdmi/audio shield?
Can you tell us the specification of the HDMI? 1.3 and 1.4?
This item clearly needs the full 10 minute treatment during the next Ask an Engineer.
jr – we’re going to check and see and update the pages once we know for sure.
I would quite appreciate if you can offer some very short (about 30 cm)HDMI cables too.
Sometimes its more than enough and will prevent unnecessary rolls of cable.
@jr – here is a note from our developer/partner. our cable is 1.3
“HDMI 1.3 is the spec we ordered to, as we don’t support ethernet or ARC for the products we are selling at this time.
A lot of marketing material would have you believe a 1.3 cable can’t do 3D but the bitrate is the same. 3D was officially included in spec 1.4 but they didn’t change the bandwidth requirement of the video pairs to support it; it’s actually a change in the transceivers. So from a customer standpoint you only need a 1.4 cable if you plan on doing ethernet over HDMI or the audio return channel, which is uncommon even today.”
