We've all heard about the problems with HDMI (I'm talking about the problems with connecting HDMI devices reliably and all of the finger pointing.) Some of us with somewhat elaborate HDMI connections have already experienced this first hand while others are in for some surprises when the day comes that they connect their various HDMI devices. One of the nice things about CEDIA is that you get to talk to experts in the field and get some straight answers. In this case, we talked for a long time with Jano Banks of Radiient Technologies (his name is listed second on the patent for HDMI) as well as with people at Simplay who are involved in trying to set certification standards for HDMI. Rather than trying to present the entire HDMI connectivity scenario (which would fill pages on its own) in this thread I'll try to answer specific questions, if I can, regarding what I found out about how the industry is responding to the first wave of HDMI connectivity problems.
