HDMI group becomes “The cable Nazi”

July 11th, 2011



How ridiculous is this? The HDMI Group who oversees the definition of, well, HDMI, is slapping C&D notices on the sale of cables that have an HDMI connector at one end and anything else at the other. Their argument goes – HDMI standards specify that both ends of the cable must be terminated by an HDMI connector – Any that don’t can’t be an HDMI cable. ┬áStupid!

If they want to enforce use of their connector to that degree then maybe they should have thought about all the devices out there that want to connect to HDMI enabled devices and designed a connector that doesn’t have a nasty habit of FALLING OUT of such things as adaptors.

To quote Ripley “Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away?”
