I'll have to try my BJ 25ft hdmi with no HD Fury Integral and run it from the Samsung to JVC and see if I can get a GUI without inserting a disc.
Yes, I read BJ Cables tutorial. Good read.
I have several of the Series 1 cables also and I asked BJC how they compared to the new certified cables. The answer was that because the same method was being used to terminate the cables, they probably would pass--particularly because of the larger conductor size. My Series 1 cables are about a half-inch in diameter. Certification costs money, so I doubt that the discontinued Series 1 cables are going to be tested by anyone other than we owners by trial and error.
