mini hdmi to hdmi

  • Hello,

    What is the best solution for connecting the ft with a mini hdmi -> hdmi, a hdmi to mini hdmi cable or an adapter with an HDMI cable?

    There is a difference for adapters, or does it have no impact on 4K, framerate etc?

  • I have a mini-hdmi adapter for my pi4. bought it cheap but it supports [email protected] without issues.

    I have not tried HDR as there is no support for it atm but i think that will also work.


    Sorry i missread, I have a micro adapter. Should be same though as long as all pins are used.

  • A small adapter (maybe metal case for shielding) and a regular (high speed) HDMI cable is the best (most flexible) solution. The adapter leads all signals from source to target by simple wiring.

  • Thank you for your answers,

    So if I understand correctly, whatever the micro-hdmi adapter to hdmi, I would have no loss it has no impact on the flow etc

    As for the cable, I just take a hdmi high speed cable in the title and they are all compatible HDR / 4K 60FPS? Or not specially?

    It's all about electromagnetic shielding. The higher your screen resolution is, the higher the data transfer rate. There are no additional electronic parts needed.

  • For example on a cable here : Câble HDMI 1M - KUBII

    Wrong product. If you want 4K, then go for a store that clearly says "4K". It's easy to find.

    Official HDMI standard names are "HDMI High Speed" and "HDMI High Speed Premium". They both support 4K.

  • Yup, new cable over an adapter any day, just remember the RPi4 is micro not mini


    I bought a new 4k cable for mine and was surprised to see the package labelled "with Ethernet" - didn't know that was a thing with HDMI. It works fine so far although I haven't tried it on a 4k TV yet, I only have 1080p for now.
