For those who, like me, missed the Basic HDMI 101 class and want a quick primer on it, Tomshardware just put up a brief overview article of HDMI. Just took a couple minutes to read. It gave the impression that all versions of HDMI could use the same cabling?

What I don’t like is that some companies are calling their cables 1.3 complaint when their all supposed to be made the same way so it could be that some of the original cables weren’t made properly. At least the companies that are making the cables now are paying more attention which is why a lot of them are being called category 2 cables. 1.3 complaint cables and category 2 cables are the same if anybody’s wondering.

Basically category 2 cables are tested much better than category 1 cables.
Category 2 cables also handle the higher bandwidth if you have 1.3 complaint devices.

"A Warning about Cable length The HDMI specification does not define a maximum cable length. HDMI 1.3 defined two categories of cables: Category 1 (standard or HDTV) and Category 2 (high-speed or greater than HDTV) regardless, neither HDMI or DVI work well over distances greater then 15 feet. If you need a cable longer then 10 feet you will definitely want to consider top quality cables. For anything greater then 15 feet, some companies offer amplifiers, equalizers and repeaters that can help bridge longer distances."
