Hello,

Title is self explanatory. Do HDMI 1.4a capable AV receivers support Ethernet Channel ?

Does this mean that I hook-up the ethernet cable on my AV receiver and it acts as an Ethernet-over-HDMI network switch (i.e. a standard ethernet switch using HDMI cables) ?

Thanks.

Note that Ethernet is an option, but not mandatory for HDMI 1.4 AVRs..
To verify, you need to identify the specific brand/model..

Just my $0.05... 👍😉

Unless your manual explicitly state your component has Ethernet over HDMI support, no. AND, you'll need cables that support it too.

No AV receiver supports Ethernet over HDMI. In fact I don't think there is any device on the market that does support it.

So, are you saying that current HDMI 1.4a AV receivers don't even let the ethernet channel pass through ?

Okay, let me give an example in order to become more specific:

- I connect all my sources to a current AV receiver through HDMI (e.g. Yamaha RX-V 475). The AV receiver is connected to the TV through HDMI as well.
- Let's suppose that in 6 months from now, a TV capable of Ethernet-over-HDMI is out.
- I hook the ethernet cable to the new TV.
- TV and AV receiver are connected with ethernet-capable HDMI cable.
- QUESTION: Do I get ethernet on the Ethernet-over-HDMI capable connected sources ?

Your current receiver, like all AV receivers, doesn't support Ethernet over HDMI. If a TV ever comes out that supports Ethernet over HDMI, your receiver won't be able to connect to your home network through such a TV, nor will any device connected to one of your receiver's HDMI inputs.

I don't think it's likely that you'll find any TVs, AV receivers or any other device that supports Ethernet over HDMI in the next six months. Maybe not ever.
