What you need to know about HDMI


HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video interface for transmitting uncompressed digital data. HDMI supports, on a single cable, any TV or PC video format, including standard, enhanced, and high-definition video; up to 8 channels of digital audio.

The maximum pixel clock rate for HDMI 1.0 was 165 MHz, which was sufficient for supporting 1080p and WUXGA (1920×1200) at 60 Hz. HDMI 1.3 increased that to 340 MHz, which allows for higher resolution (such as WQXGA, 2560×1600) across a single digital link.

Probably you might not know about this, HDMI has one glitch; if the program you recorded has DRM (Digital Rights Management) encoded in it, an attempt to play it back using an HDMI output/input may show nothing more than a message stating the program is copy protected and cannot be played back.
