comment How do debug HDMI port
Unfortunately I only have one device to test it with... It's an interesting point about the signal strength, the projector does seem to make an effort to communicate but gives up after a while.

comment Numeric error in Excel with parentheses?
In engineering math these errors can be pretty bad, which just happens to be what I'm doing..! Nonetheless the error came from copying two calculated values whose error was smaller than Excel was capable of displaying with all its precision, but still nonzero.

comment Numeric error in Excel with parentheses?
Interestingly I have solved the problem, and it is an unfortunate disconnect between the display of a value and the bits used to store it internally. I did in fact copy these values, as values, from a calculated sheet and when expanding the values out to enough significant figures to confirm them exact, they appeared exact (up to 40sf.) Retyping them manually resolved the issue and all results were exactly zero. It does highlight though a difference in the calculation strategy when brackets are used and that it is not possible to know exactly what value a cell contains.

Thanks Aaron, I have used ProcessExplorer before, just didn't know it could do that too!
