    Can someone explain these types of HDMI? Are we going to see a bunch of other "types" in the near future? Is HDMI Type C already working? Thanks.

    With all these types, one has to be rich to buy a new HDTV unit every time these companies come out with a new type of connector which is not compatible with either A or B. Isn't this getting ridiculous? Shouldn't the government regulate this mess? What's your opinion? Thanks.

    Oh I heard that a new technology called UHDMI (Universal-HDMI) will be out soon. (Just kidding here!)

    At this point, my display and DVD player have one version, my receiver will have another, and then there is the HD DVR with the "handshake"problem. It is useless to try to keep up.
    Outside of compatibility issues, HDMI has always struck me as a bad design. Why did they not include hold-down screws like DVI, I have had a HDMI connection get loose before.

    B.T.W. Shouldn't this thread be in another area?

    I have a Mits 57" and the HDMI cables are incredibly loose. I have one from the sat box and one from the DVD. I can walk by the TV, tap it with my hand and the HDMI's fall out! Or at least lose the video connection.
    I have the Extended Warranty but they said if it was a bad cable they wouldn't cover it. I tested one of the cables on my Sony and it fit snug.
    I'm looking for advice here. Do you think the connection in the Mits is bad? If so, the Extened should cover it?
    (I apologize if this is in th wrong forum. I'm a newbie).
