Although the main type seen on televisions and other domestic AV equipment is the most widely used, and probably the most robust, other types exist for other applications as well.
Other types have been introduced since then to meet specific needs. The HDMI system and the accompanying connectors and leads are able to enable the high speed transfer of high quality and bandwidth AV signals along with providing for other associated capabilities.
The connectors are manageable whilst remaining robust and reliable. However there are differences in size and particularly the number of wires in the cable and connector.
The different HDMI connector types have remained unchanged after their introduction. This has enabled backwards compatibility to be maintained over the life of the standard. With the exception of the dual link Type B connector, they all have 19 pins enabling the standard to remain the same across all connector types. In view of the different sizes, the different HDMI connectors tend to be used on different types of equipment. There is a convention for connectors that the source of power, data, audio etc has a female connector and the item taking the power, audio, etc is male.
The reason for this is that the female connector pins, by the very nature of a female connector are protected and cannot suffer a short circuit by the accidental shorting by an external metallic object. However many modern connectors also have male areas that are protected and there is less chance of short circuits. Accordingly female HDMI connectors are usually built into both the static devices at either end of the connection, e.
In other words female HDMI connectors are present on the signal source device and the receiving device. Male HDMI connectors are then attached to both ends of the connecting cables. Part of the reason for this is that many of the communications occur in both directions and therefore, even though one may be a signal source as such, the receiving device still sends signals and other data out.
As a result is is sensible to adopt the strategy that the devices have female connectors and the cables have male HDMI connectors. Normally the female HDMI connectors are recessed into the body of the various devices but even so they tend to be damaged more easily as a result of the strain sometimes applied accidentally if the cables are pulled in the wrong direction, etc.
As a result, the female HDMI connectors tend to be sold more frequently as replacement connectors! Even if male connectors on a cable are damaged on the shorter commercially made HDMI cables, the difficulty of replacing them and the cost of the connector compared to a new HDMI cable means that a new HDMI cable is bought rather than trying to attempt a repair. The most obvious format for a connector is to have one that, when plugged in to the receptacle, the cable from the free connector extends outwards from the connection.
This is suitable for most applications, but it can require some space for the cable to bend to the direction in which it needs to be routed. There are some instances where a very sharp bend might be needed.
This bend might need to be too sharp to be accommodated by the HDMI cable. This could put too much strain on the HDMI connector and cable. Right angles HDMI connectors are very useful where equipment may be close to a wall or panel within a cabinet, etc. The cable coming out of the connector will travel alongside the equipment and not require a very sharp bend to enable it to fit within the space available. If an HDMI cable with a right angled connector is not available, then right angled adaptors are available.
These should generally not be used unless necessary as they add a further connection into the cabling, and will not be as firm as a single HDMI connector, but they nevertheless resolve an issue and can be used for the short term. These cables are widely available and will be able to provide the full HDMI capability, consistent with the capability of both ends of the link. These cables are very useful because they do not require the use of an HDMI connector adapter, and a cable is required anyway to link the two items together.
There are some instances where a connector adapter may be needed. The variety of HDMI connectors ensures that the HDMI standard can be successfully used in many different areas and they can accommodate the requirements of users of the many different applications for which HDMI is used.
The Type A connector is the one that is the most familiar to users of AV equipment and it is found on a huge number of items from televisions, DVD players, satellite boxes, recorders, games consoles and many more items. The plug or male connector has outside dimensions of This connector type is electrically compatible with single-link DVI-D.
The male version of the HDMI Type A connector is widely available on ready made leads as well as connectors for self assembly.Some Pascal graphic cards may still not work after following this guide.

FWIW what I noticed most frequently is that the levels would work as if it thought the sound was being generated but it was silent. Then one thing that worked for me was using the Troubleshooter to make it change the driver but not letting it do the Restart it wanted to do.
Then I would have sound as long as I deferred the Restart. Fortunately this problem went away with Did this solve your problem? Yes No. Sorry this didn't help. Thanks for your feedback. I would admit that the new Settings dialog is not being very helpful in figuring out how to do that. If you have the window maximized you can see Sound Control Panel far to the right.
That opens what I would have expected where I would do a right-click Test. Otherwise, without that clue, let's explore. There's Device Properties as a button. That would be the equivalent of doing the other thing but doing a right-click Properties instead. There is a Test function in the Advanced tab that way. While you have that open you should check the Levels tab for potential discrepancies.
