Cleveland - I was talking with a colleague last week about HDMI and mentioned the soon to be released new version of the, now, ubiquitous cable, 2.0. We both grimaced. Having been the most screwed up product introduced to the market in my nearly 20 year career our uncomfort is natural. The fact that you can't ignore HDMI makes it frustrating as well.
Here's hoping the new 2.0 version of HDMI is completely backwards compatible while also able to handle the high bandwidth demands of the future. Otherewise there's going to be big headaches for us all.
For an in-depth look at the new cable spec here's Home Theater Review's take on the matter, Is HDMI 2.0 Coming Soon to a Home Theater Near You?
