    Looking for some sources for right-angled cables (I think I need 270°). Everything I can find on Fleabay/Gurgle/Bong/etc is either only v1.4 (looking for 4k60 at a minimum here) or are little dongles - which I suspect will die after about 12 minutes, possibly taking out the receiver or device ports with them.

    I need to get the receiver closer to the wall, I'm sick of losing space in my living room because the HDMI cables have massive bend radii and fragile connectors.

    Possibly. How the F do you tell which ones are trustworthy / good enough quality, given they're all $4??

    IDK - when I see products stating "HDMI 2.0 cable" and the description says "HDMI 1.4a" I get nervous... Example: https://www.cablechick.com.au/cables/ultra-thin-1m-hdmi-cable-hdmi-v20-high-speed-with-ethernet.html. Any experience with the ultra-thin cables? They seem to be "safer" bets than Chinese sellers who have 4 total sales to their record.

    The cables don't have version numbers, the devices do;

    But yeah often it's used instead to indicate rated speed to an extent.

    These should be fine unless trying to push more than 18Gbps;
