Do all shape/sizes of HDMI connectors have the same functionality (Type A, B, C mini, D micro)?

    If you look at this image, the easy answer is no. There are a different number of pin / pin arrangements

     

    Now for the dificult answer.

     

    Type A supports HDTV, EDTV and SDTV.

     

    Type B adds the support of Dual-link DVI, although it has not officially been used yet.

     

    Type C Mini is cross compatable with Type A, but a compressed connector for portable devices.

     

    Type D Micro is the same as C, but it shrinks the head down even smaller resembling something like a USB mini connector.

     

    Type E is used in the Automotive application.
