hmmm. No problems on my XP operating system. And both were current just a couple weeks ago.

But I'm seeing version 32.0.3 for Firefox.
And version 5.1.2 on the Ghostery options page.

First thing I noticed when it comes to 4k movies is the frame rate.
HDMI 1.4 only supports 15fps..
So one needs HDMI 3.0 on both ends.
Even my pretty awesome telly doesent have it, I have to get
a couple upgraded parts for it.

Since I'm both slow and maniacish that more than likly translates
into a bigger (85"?) telly that allready has it one day in the too distant future.
This will also give me bigger, more readable text where zoom is a hassle.

And my awesome new video card will have to be upgraded as it doesent have the new HDMI standard either.

No wonder I never get to be a rich guy

Thanks Balt. Maybe some supported display port to HDMI adapter will be out there for the display card work with a little luck. Knocks on wood for luck.

LoL Looks like HDMI version numbers for even my own hardware are not so easy to find.

Hmm DP!
This is a connector that should start appering on tellys soon, wouldnt one think?
I mean, all devices gets more and more connected to each other so maybe!
The avenue is to be explored.

I was thinking my R9 video card should do what you said earlier with a DP connection and maybe a DP to HDMI adapter but never actually asked AMD support.

That does look pretty spiffy for under $100.
