HDMI 2.0 will be a running-change, I confirmed this last week with Datasat. Pretty much all of the higher-end manufacturers use MDS for their boards, and there are not HDMI 2.0 boards available yet from MDS as far as I know.
Has anyone confirmed that Atmos home recipe will operate with all channels from HDMI 1.4? Or how about the new DTS format? I see another bag of confusion coming where this "added feature" of higher channel counts is concerned: how many speakers to add, where to add them, what layout is compatible with what formats, what ends up being the best compromise for all of them, and do they end up just being another "feature" that is a solution looking for a problem…
That was why I made the comment regarding HDMI and trinnov- just because their processor has a pc inside, doesn't make it immune to HDMI changes and the like: only easy software changes like new codecs. Overall, there isn't a great crystal ball when it comes to new "advances" even the best of them get bitten eventually (Theta-HDMI, need I say more?).
