I am seriously considering upgrading my old but reliable Panny 900u to the Epson 3020. I really want the benefit of a 1080 image, the additional brightness this projector offers, and of course the 3D. Those are my reasons. My issue is my AVR. It's a Yamaha RX-V2600. I love it, but it can only pass 720P/1080i via its HDMI switching and therein lies the problem.
I've read a bit and I'm not seeing any way around this. I'm running HDMI from my PS3 to the Yamaha 2600 and getting LPCM 5.1 for audio and I'm happy with that and my projector is only 720P now so no issues there. My only option is to settle for sending 1080i to the projector. If I send the new projector a 1080i signal, with it do the deinterlacing? Will there be a picture difference? Will the 3D still work with that signal (I believe the RX-V2600 is only HDMI 1.1). I see my options as:
1. Send HDMI straight to projector and use optical out to receiver (I'd lose the LPCM 5.1)
2. Use HDMI from receiver to projector (not sure that that would so to image quality or 3D...can't be good)
3. Are there any HDMI splitter options that would let me send HDMI to receiver for audio, and another to projector thus getting the full 1080P via HDMI 1.4?
Or do I just need a new receiver as well??
