    Just as they are now showing a 1.4b series cable on the HDMI site, they are up to 1.3c just as the 1.4 was coming out. I have several 50 and 75 foot 1.3b's in many installations and my own home and they all work great. I paid about $1 a foot for at the best place for purchasing cables: http://eForCity.com.

    HDMI IS "Beyond that it can be hit or miss and you have to try it with your particular set up to get a definite answer".

    Samsung (HDMI ISSUE)

    What I don't get is why it will work from directv receiver in bedroom to sony tv in living room set on 1080i but will not work from fta receiver in living room to bedroom samsung tv using settings 480i.

    Are you sure the Samsung will accept 480i over HDMI? Not all TV's can accept that.

    The manual should tell you. If you no longer have a manual, you could try hooking that TV up to the DIRCTV box and setting it to 480i. If you get the same unsupported message, that would be a good indication. That the TV won't accept 480i over HDMI.

    I hooked up directv receiver in living room to samsung tv in bedroom settings on 1080 and it works perfect, so it would seem something in the fta receiver is causing this problem. I have the fta receiver in the living room connected to the sony tv in the living room through hdmi and it works perfect so go figure.

    What brand FTA receiver? Most of those use RGB and not YPrPb outputs, and may cause some handshaking issues at that distance. If its an AZBox, well, it might just be the AZBox software. If so, try rebooting the FTA receiver with the HDMI cable plugged in to the Samsung, and watch to see if it shows ANY boot screens at all.
