Thanks very much for the photo. That looks similar to the one I have. It would be interesting to swap cables as a test, but that's not really practical.

I have to wonder if this is a version issue. Mini DisplayPort has multiple versions and modes. As does HDMI. Perhaps inadvertently through a code cange the Mini DisplayPort connection is running in a mode not supported by your cable. Good reading here;

I have tried 3 different cables. At least 2 of them say they're HDMI 1.4a compliant. Go figure :mellow:

I am more concerned about the other end. Type 1 or 2? Verion 1.0-1.1-1.2?

Good question. Don't know. Don't think the package stated it.
