You're right. Why was it that the 1.4 designation was used? AudioQuest customer service explained that to me as well. Best Buy Magnolia couldn't explain it. I was also told at Best Buy that their cheap high speed store brand was only for 60Hz. My Forest HDMI cable (if I recall) was designated for my 240Hz TV. Does this make sense?
