So the HDMI consortium is working on the new version of HDMI, HDMI 2.0. Its supposed to be released sometime this year. My question is will any manufacturers have HDMI 2.0 AVRs out this year, or will we have to wait till the 2014 refresh?

For those interested in what 2.0 will bring.
Quote:
HDMI 2.0 to support 4K resolution at 60 frames per second (fps).[154] Other features that are expected for HDMI 2.0 include support for 4:2:0 chroma subsampling, support for 25 fps 3D formats, improved 3D capability, support for more than 8 channels of audio, support for the HE-AAC and DRA audio standards, dynamic auto lip-sync, and additional CEC functions.[154]
This is all from Wikipedia and the source links are dead.rolleyes.gif

I doubt it. There don't seem to be any HDMI 2.0 chips yet, though I imagine you could implement a number of the new features in HDMI 2.0 with existing parts.

Considering the new models start rolling out in the next month or two .... not likely.
