Do you need new HDMI cables for HDR?
There is no such thing as an “HDR HDMI” cable or an “HDMI 2.0” cable. That second one is important. HDMI cables don’t have version numbers. The connections have version numbers. So your TV might be “HDMI 2.0a” (and indeed needs to be for HDR), but the cable you plug into it doesn’t have a number. It’s just an HDMI cable.
There are four basic types of HDMI cables in the home:
- High Speed with Ethernet
- Standard Speed with Ethernet
- High Speed without Ethernet
