    noticed as i have been researching and prepared to buy a samsung 3d television model un46c8000xf that its 4 hdmi inputs are 4.1 does this mean i need all new hdmi cables? or can i still use the ones i have even if they are 3.1?

    Are you having a bout with dyslexia with respect to your HDMI version numbers???

    The HDMI home site is the best place to get answers to these kinds of questions.

    The important HDMI cables will be the one that runs from a 3D Blu-4ay player to the TV and, if you have a satellite receiver or DVR that supports 3D (thinking DirecTV), HDMI version 1.3 cables MAY work just fine. My son is using a Vizio flat high speed cable that he got at Fry's to connect between his 55 inch Samsung 3D LCD and Samsung 3D Blu-ray player with excellent results. Sam's club sells a two pack of these cables. The Monster 1.4 cable with adapter is overpriced and unnecessary.
