I am looking to get a new Home Theater in a Box, which has HDMI 1.4 and is able to pull in all HDMI sources then pass them out to the TV.

The question I have is that the TV only has HDMI 1.3 inputs, and I am curious whether I will still be able to utilize the "audio return" feature of the HDMI 1.4 (sound from the TV source is fed back to the HTIAB via HDMI).

Thanks.

No, if the TV was produced under the 1.3 spec, it will not have audio return. Bear in mind, too, that audio return is an optional feature so the fact that your HTIB is a 1.4 version does not mean it supports audio return channel; you need to see whether that feature is listed as being supported by your particular HTIB.

Thanks Kurt, that's what I was suspecting, and definitely influences my decision.
