Each HDMI cable may have a slightly different procedure, so refer to the manufacturers instructions for details.

How do you determine the required HDMI cable connector?

There are two ways to find out which connector to use. Try to locate the manufacturers instructions associated with the product for which you want connection via HDMI cable. The instructions should tell you which 75-foot HDMI cable connector types you need. You can also examine the HDMI port on the hardware items you wish to connect. The port size and shape may correspond to several HDMI connector types, such as:

  • HDMI 1.4 standard male
  • HDMI standard female
  • HDMI standard male
Which HDMI cable can you split?

Splitting HDMI isnt exactly what it sounds like. You aim to split the signal, which doesnt entail splitting the wire. HDMI is a combined transmitter of audio and visual signals, so you need an HDMI audio splitter to split the audio and video for display by two or more devices. Splitters sometimes appear on eBay labeled as HDMI converters. With a splitter, you connect your source feed, such as a laptop, to a splitter via HDMI cable. Next, you connect up to eight additional HDMI devices by running HDMI cables from the splitter to each device.

What are gold-tip 1080P HDMI cables for?

Gold tips for audio and visual connectors are purely aesthetic and not a reference to quality. The 1080P refers to video resolution. As a general rule, purchase and use HDMI cables that support a video resolution equal to your display devices resolution. HDMI is compatible with high-definition and full-definition resolution, so most HDMI cable products are compatible.

The enormous array of available items on eBay includes HDMI cables in gently used and new-in-box (NIB) condition. Some cables include product descriptions touting them as ultrahigh speed, Blu-ray, and Xbox. All 75-foot HDMI cable products are compatible with any of these consoles, providing you find one with the correct connector type.
