If the op can state specifically what the trouble is (what he is seeing or not seeing) it can probably be resolved but using inaccurate terms confuses the issue and I have no idea what problem they are having.
From my assumption there is a hdmi cable w/ or w/o Ethernet then a high speed hdmi cable w/ or w/o Ethernet... so if he was running a standard hdmi cable that wasn't high speed then that would be a 'higher quality' cable... no? Also, to run 1080p you need a high speed cable and if you don't it will send at the best resolution as possible which in his case may be 720p.
