HDMI 1.4 is more for 4k video, HDMI 1.3 can handle 3D.
It going to be some years until HDMI 1.4 takes hold & there is nothing in the pipelines, TV or Bluray players, that have HDMI 1.4 that I know.
Maybe your thinking USB 3.0 that is come out in 2010 & there are a few motherboard & USB external HHD in the works & will be released soon.
I am considering the Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K A/V Receiver, particularly since it received the cnet editor's award. However, in doing my "due diligence" I learned that in mid-2009 a new HDMI standard was released called v1.4. From what I have learned, the new standard supports additional bandwidth (which could support the new 3D TVs being announced as well as network connectivity (ethernet). So I sent an inquiry to Pioneer asking if their VSX-1019AH-K A/V Receiver supports the new standard (ie will the additional bandwidth presented at one of the four HDMI inputs be passed through to the output going to the TV? Their answer was no, the VSX-1019AH-K A/V Receiver only supports HDMI 1.3.
Although the Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K A/V Receiver runs about $500, there are other AV receiver that are considerably more expensive. I would think that the cnet reviews may want to highlight the HDMI 1.4 issue as area to consider when making a AV receiver purchase decision.
Anyway, my question is:
Does anyone know of any AV receiver currently available that support the new 1.4 standard?
