Whatever, IceStorm III... HDMI v1.4 is all over "HDMI.org" Documents
Yes, that's a standard.
& they changed the HDMI v1.4a Title to "High Speed HDMI with Ethernet", as of 1st January, 2012..
Try October, 2008
What is your point in arguing on that...
That you don't understand VGA at a fundamental level?
The Display Data Channel, is vital to any Display Interface
No, it's not. Many things just ignore it, even over digital interfaces. The 360 itself has the option to disable display discovery.
& is streamed as "data" through the cable,
For DDC there's no reason to put data in quotes. It's an I2C bus.
I'm sick of you, cutting off a sentence to argue with too,
I'm doing my best. Your sentence structure is far from standard.
There are SVGA + XGA Cables
No, there aren't. VGA is VGA. If a particular cable doesn't work then there's something wrong with the cable.
've got the experience of using them../
It's not my fault you were conned into buying a cable you didn't need.
It is NOT "Gibberish" to say; a Monitor with a 275MHz Pixel Clock Rate, might have problems with a DVI-D Single Link cable, being adapted from a HDMI Cable/ HDMI v1.2 Interface of 165MHz, that supports HDCP
Yeah... still gibberish.
& as i've mentioned.....DVI DOESN'T SUPPORT HDCP....
HDCP is supported over DVI. All of the monitors I have are HDCP compliant over DVI. I've used them with the PS3, which insists on HDCP for everything.
Many Xbox 360 Games, NEED HDCP to run...
Eh. It's possible some do, but there's been no general outcry from the people who jam AV cables in alongside HDMI cables. As that disables HDCP and people aren't up in arms over games not working, the vast majority of games do not require HDCP.
Spending $2000 on a monitor, that is designed for a Graphics Design Workstation & Graphics Card, then expecting it to work with all devices, is Ludicrous,
I don't believe anyone's expecting it to work with all devices. The OP wanted to know why his 360 isn't working. Unless the 360 is set to 1280x800, it's not going to work.
