Anyone's using HDMI 1.4 with Mac mini or Apple TV?

I guess there'll be no problem, yes?

(I mean HDMI 1.4 cable.)

An HDMI 1.4 cable is backwards compatible with all versions of HDMI from 1.4 down. There is no problem using a 1.4 with a 1.1, 1.2, etc.... All that 1.4 means is that it can handle the additional demands of 1.4 over the other HDMI "types"....

Too bad I just got, I suspect, a HDMI handshake issue between my new 70" Sharp TV and my PC using HDMI 1.4 compliant cable so I'm a bit suspicious at the moment since I will get the Mac mini next month.

Obviously if the cable is bad whether HDMI 1.4 "compliant" or not won't matter....

Turns out the problem is not the cable but my PC HDMI port. I connected ATV to the TV and everything is fine. Duh. :apple:
