And yet another can of worms...........

HDMI cables have changed too. Most older cables do not have the bandwidth for 4K or the wiring for ARC (Audio Return Channel). If your HDMI cables are more than a few years old, add new cables to your budget.

And I thought Martins were expensive, at least they last a lifetime.......

No, you really don't. HDMI are just digital cables... either the signal gets there or it doesn't. You can't really improve them much or change anything. Most will work fine even with the increased bandwidth. My old HDMI works fine for 4k, HDR.

HDMI 1.0 was released December 9, 2002 and is a single-cable digital audio/video connector interface with a maximum TMDS bandwidth of 4.95 Gbit/s.

My cables were first generation, they did not handle 4K HDR/60 not have ARC capabilities.

I think the reasonable answer is most will work, as your article said, but it depends on when you bought your cables. When I first got DirecTV 4K it would not work, I was getting a message that my TV did not support 4K, and would only send a 1080 signal. DTV's tech support said to get the latest spec HDMI cables, I was doubtful, but that solved the problem.

While I was at the Best Buy Magnolia, there was an ATT/DirecTV promotion going on at the time, I saw the salesman who sold me my Sony, and he said I was the third person that day coming in for new HDMI cables. Apparently us early adapters had 1.0 HDMI cables, which do not work, so it depends on when you bought them............
