You can't "just use DP" as entire ecosystem would need to change, which is not going to happen any time soon. Nobody will suddently start producing AVR and TV boards with DP ports. Even consoles do not have those ports.\n\nRealistically, consumer protection organisarions and tech laywers can help push the companies that control HDMI Org to reform itself via class action lawsuit. HDMI Org needs to be ordered by judge to restore numbering system 2.0 to minimize misleading marketing which is already taking place, as we have heard and seen. Scrapping 2.0 numbering was the worst possible anti-consumer move in the industry which caused all 2.0 devices being able to apply for 2.1 banner. Ridiculous. There is nothing good or useful for consumers in this change and this is the basis for lawsuit class action.\n\n\nBoy did you take my post too seriously. I'm very aware of how much of a mess it is. You laid it out VERY well in an above post. I'm just being dense and suggesting something they should have just gone with in the beginning, but decided not to, and will never do. Just goes to show that the customer isn't the #1 priority.\n\nI still need to invent that sarcasm font.
