    Although I don't know what frame rate will be used in Blu-ray, I wonder very much if the Blu-ray players will be able to output 1080p@60fps. I have asked to Sony, they did not reply, then I asked to HDMI.org: same story. Many people claim that HDMI cannot carry 1080p at 60fps signal and since Blu-ray is going to be a HDMI compliant technology, there will not be Blu-ray discs with 1080p/60 content (unless there is an upgrade in HDMI).

    Any opinions or information?

    Why can't HDMI carry 1080p @ 60 fps?

    I have seen swithch boxes that boast the ability to pass a UXGA (1600x1200) signal. I would think that one high qulaity HDMI cable should be able to carry at least a WUXGA (1920x1200) signal without problems. But I don't know for sure. I don't even think that the creators have a final spec for HDMI.

    Yet I think that is the point. It is suppose to grow as the industry needs it too. It wouldn't be the first up grade for the HDMI interface.

    [bold] Quoted from http://ultimateavmag.com/news/041805Mits/ [/bold]

    there are many other websites that claim HDMI cannot carry 1080p/60. On the other hand, even if you find internet sources unreliable (which is something I do), you cannot find any official information to discredit that claim. If HDMI really was 1080p/60 capable I am sure that HDMI.org would have replied my e-mail asking if HDMI does carry 1080p/60 or not.

    noob question, but how do you know if you have DVI or 'dual link' DVI.

    can you tell by looking?

    edit: reason i ask is coz i have a nice 27" LCD and I'm a bit worried that everybody is raving about HDMI, and my tv hasn't got it!
    It has DVI, d-sub, component and the rest, but no HDMI.

    I want to know if in the future I get something with HDMI out, (blue ray etc) will i be able to connect it to my tv?

    That article doesn't make since. HDMI type B has more bandwith than Dual-Link DVI cable.


    HDMI.org
    HDMI.org
    Why wouldn't they support 1080p at 60 fps when HDMI has 5 Gbps of bandwith?


    Wikipedia

    HDMI
    DVI

    It would seem that HDMI type b would be just as capable as Dual-Link DVI.

    Yes as long as your DVI input is HDCP complient. Get a HDMI to DVI adapter.

    yes i think it is, thanks.

    can you buy these adapters yet, do you have any links?

    Yes every major retailer sells them. You can get either an HDMI-DVI adapter or an HDMI-to DVI cable (or vise versa).


    The catch...

    DVI doesn't carry audio like HDMI does. So don't forget to run audio cables to your set!

    I don't see that as a catch, I would hate my audio to be tied up in the same cable, It'll be going thru my av amp anyway.

    well thanks for clearing that up, i was starting to think my brand new tv was out of date already!
