HDMI from PC to 4K HDR TV for Movies

  Daniel Groza 22:30 13 Aug 2019

I have a PC with a Gigabyte GTX 1070 Windforce OC GPU and a Samsung 43ru7102 4K HDR TV. Would a 1.4 HDMI Cable be enough to use strictly for 4k HDR Blu-ray content (mostly movies running at 24fps) playback from my PC on my TV? Considering 1.4 does not support HDR, would the video still play only without the HDR content or simply not play at all?

............a 1.4 HDMI Cable..............

There's no such thing as a "1.4 HDMI Cable". HDMI 1.4,2.0a, 2.0b, etc refer to the specification of the interface inside your graphics card or TV etc.

Any cable that's newer than ten years old should be up to the job. If you're not sure then a "high speed" HDMI cable costs less than £5.
