    How do you waht sort of HDMI cables you have ?

    With 4k Ultra HD ( 12 Gbs ) requiring a higher speed then the normal HDMI cable how do you know what you have are the right ones ? ( 12 Gbs )

    And what happens is you plug a normal HDMI cable in to your player and TV ? Is the picture degraded or will it not work at all?

    You need a HDMI 2.0a or better cable to do 4k@60hz

    Using a lower spec cable may result in degraded with audio/video artefacts or will only connect at lower res.

    If your current cables have written along them “high speed with Ethernet” and are less than 7 metres long then there is a good chance they will do 4K, at least at 30hz and maybe 60hz

    That's the industry's wicked plan all along! Create doubt and confusion, and so get more sales
