This cable is only for use on 4K / UHD Televisions so even if it really does upscale HD to 4K as they claim, your Plasma TV will not display a 4K / UHD signal. You might even fry something in...

Good point, and sometimes the newer models have poorer picture quality then their predecessors do (as they make them cheaper and cheaper).

Mack might still have the policy that allows you to buy their warranty up to 9 months after buying the TV. I don't think Square Trade has this option. If you're within that 9 month window, maybe...
