Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

1.8m HDMI 1.4b Cable - HDMI (Male) to DVI-D (Male), Black is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality This is a good cable. When my computer turns off, my screen turns off immediately. With my old cable, the screen would stay on for five minutes, saying that it had no signal. I'd like to know why! Don't worry that this cable has a DVI-D plug with only 19 pins. That's because its HDMI plug also has 19 pins. The extra pins of a DVI-I plug wouldn't be connected to anything when there's an HDMI plug at the other end.

Questions & Answers

What max resolution does this support?

Looking at purchasing a 2560x1080 widescreen monitor. Will this support higher than a 1920x1080 resolution?
Asked by: Nickh
The short answer is: probably yes but videos and games will look juddery. I recommend choosing a monitor for which you won't need an adapter cable, so have another look at the ports on your graphics card. (Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort adapters are fine; they just have different-sized plugs, but DVI and HDMI are different standards that have limited compatibility.) The long answer... HDMI is backward-compatible with single-link DVI, which can run a 1920x1200 display at 60 Hz. (That's what I'm using this cable for.) Your display and video card may support higher resolutions, but they will have to run at a lower frame-rate to stay within the bandwidth of single-link DVI. This limitation is not specific to this StarTech cable. (It's a good cable.) Both DVI and HDMI can support higher resolutions at higher frame-rates but they do so in incompatible ways. Dual-link DVI uses extra wires that HDMI doesn't have, while HDMI can use higher clock-speeds that DVI doesn't support. Active adapters exist but are rarely cost-effective. (Cables like this one are passive adapters with no chips inside. They work both ways round, too.) So the answer to your question is yes, but only if you don't mind watching at a lower frame-rate. 24 and 30 Hz are fairly common but check the monitor's specs. The trouble is that a lot of videos are recorded at 30 Hz and will look juddery if your screen is running at 24 Hz. (Every fifth frame will be dropped. Likewise a 24 Hz movie will look extra juddery on a 30 Hz screen where every fourth frame gets repeated. And you don't want to compensate by changing your screen's frame-rate every time you watch something different, do you?) If you choose a screen that can be connected without an adapter then you should be able to avoid these issues, unless your graphics card itself can't handle high resolutions at the usual 60 Hz! Most people would agree that 24 and 30 Hz videos look good on 60 Hz monitors. (Naturally, games are subject to the same limitations, but you also have to consider their graphics quality settings and the processing power of your computer, which is why some high-end displays support continuously-variable frame-rates over DisplayPort or HDMI.)
