I wonder if the mods can put in a script that stops '1.4' and 'HDMI Cable' appearing in the same sentence
There are no '1.4' cables - 1.4 is a hardware revision spec and has nothing to do with cables.
HDMI cables are either High Speed (tested at 1080p) or Standard (tested at 1080i/720p).
HDMI.org advise you to install a High Speed cable for 3-D - though it's worth simply trying out the cable you have with your various 3-D devices before you go spending any more cash - unless you're running a long cable you should be fine with what you have (especially with the broadcast 3-D).
The industry needs to start following the HDMI.org guidelines on cable marking otherwise most folk will still be conned/confused into buying things with bigger numbers on its watts per channel all over again
