Hello,
Just got a samsung smart 3d blue ray player. I have read that 3d can max output in 580p - but sends out in 2 x 580p to give a max of 1080p but shows as 580 only. To overcome this if you have a hdmi cable of 2160p will this mean that you can show 3d in full 1080p. Long question maybe someone can help - 13 Dec 12

The cable is not the reason for the limitation. It is has to do with the type of 3D processing chosen. Any 1.4a spec HDMI will work just fine especially in short (3-9 foot) runs.

Thank you for that. So it is the processor inside the tv and blue ray player which limit the output. What is the point of a 2160p cable. Is there anything it would be used for? I shall put the 1.4a spec hdmi cable on. Thank you.
