To start with, the 1.4 / 2.0 / 2.1 ratings are basically useless since cheap companies (and some known brands) don't follow the basic specs for those cables all the time.

You need to reference the actually speed rating. If you want to be absolutely safe, get 18Gbps rated cables (listed one below)

I have been using two different combos with perfect success so far

Combo 1:

Small Rig Micro HDMI to full HDMI adapter with an AKKKGOO "8k 2.1 HDMI cable" and everything works perfectly fine.

The small HD adapter anchors into my Small rig L-bracket so I don't have to take the micro cable in and out often.

This cable is hefty and stuff so it might not be the best for all situations, but it's only a 1 foot cable so it's not too long.

Combo 2:

Hyperthin Micro D to A HDMI : https://www.hypershop.com/products/htu08

The Hyper thin cable is not 18Gbps, but it hasn't failed me yet. I believe is 10Gbps rated. But it's benefit is that it's thin and flexible
