How to tell what version HDMI I have
I have a Dynex 26" TV Model # DX-26L150A11 How do i know if i have a version 1.3 or higher HDMI port i am looking into a google tv set up or the logitec Revue. I read on C-net that it needs to be plugged into a tv that has a version 1.3 or higher port. Any help would be appreciated.
Kevin :(:(

Most likely at least 1.3a if it is a newer set (with in the last 3-4 years). Doesn't really matter. Just get a new cable. New cables will be 1.4, but are down version compatable, so will with any previous version. You can get a cable here for around $5 if you are asking what cable to get. As far as the Revue, you should be fine. New models that support 3D have the new 1.4 HDMI standard, but does not apply to your TV.

Your TV is a newer model (1 year old or less I think).. It will be at least HDMI version 1.3a.. So no worries there with Revue.. If you are also looking for a HDMI cable and it says version 1.4, it wil still compatable and will work with older HDMI versions including 1.3... Does that answer your question, or am I just confusing you more??:D

Oops. There's no such thing as an HDMI 1.4 cable. HDMI versions refer to the software in the devices, not to the cables that connect them. There are only two types of cables - standard and high speed - and those designations have been around for quite awhile. The only application requiring a new cable is ethernet. So, a new cable won't help the OP with his issue.

Look in your TV manual - the HDMI version should be listed in there. If not, call Best Buy - Dynex is their house brand, and BB will be able to tell you the spec.

Any TV with HDMI will work with the Revue. There is no requirement for 1.3 according to the Logitech website.
