I have two questions regarding HDMI cables / connectors. I've been scratching my head for these, any idea / info is welcome. Thanks!

1. Has anyone ever used or seen HDMI Type B connector / cable? I've searched the net, a lot of sources point out this connector type is not being used yet in the industry. But, unless this is a typo, Dell specified HDMI Type B for one of their older laptop models (see the "Ports and Connectors" section in this page, ). The connector is supposed to be bigger in size (21.2 mm 4.45 mm) and more pins (29) than the most widely used HDMI Type A connector (14 mm 4.55 mm, 19 pins). It's supposed to be used for even higher resolution video signal than Type A.

2. Has anyone ever used HDMI with Ethernet? I've seen this type of cable for sale in stores, it's supposed to be able to carry video, audio, and ethernet signals all in the same cable. It's available since the HDMI v1.4 standards. I am interested to know what's the connector difference between this and a regular Type A cable? Also interested to know what type of devices / appliances use this kind of cable, and what benefit is there besides saving the use of another ethernet cable?
