1.3b or 1.4??

Hi again all, long time no speak.

 

Probably a really daft question but am getting my first 3d read set in the bedroom a Panasonic TX-L32DT30B with a 3d blu ray player DMP-BDT110, what HDMI cable do I need, bit confused as 1.3b says 3d ready and so does 1.4.  I can see 1.4 also has ethernet.  How does this work and could I use it on thissetup??

 

Thanks in advance

TB

Version numbers are marketing BS. There's only two types of HDMI, 'Standard' and 'High Speed'. You want High Speed cables for 3D.

These are now the official designations for HDMI...

You will need 'High Speed' or 'High Speed With Ethernet' (if you want to network as well).

Sorry for duplicating Daveh's response. Not intentional.

Ironically, I don't think this fundamental message can be repeated too much!  I would have posted the same.   Smile
