Do a search there have been previous threads about this...
Basic point is HDMI is the standard, makes little sense to introduce more variables into the home enterainment segment...

Just my $0.05...

DisplayPort was designed for the computer market. HDMI is for consumer electronics. HDMI can do ethernet and an audio return channel, DisplayPort cannot. It's an apples-to-oranges comparison, really.

DP has been replaced with Thunderport but I would not expect Hi-Fi to adopt it .

Who uses on ethernet ?
Who uses - audio return channel ?

I am interested DisplayPort that brings HBR2 or HBR3 amazing sound improves

DisplayPort 1.3 brings 4K 3D over a single cable
35.39 megapixels ( hdmi 2 only 18 )
DP 1.2a or 1.3 Brings "FreeSync concept" for Smooth movement

And more
HDMI worse Cable with many problems

To be honest, I will bet there are several thousand times as many people who would like ARC on their receivers, as there are who would like Display Port 1.2!

This. I use ARC on mine. And there are a lot of uses for that ethernet channel as well. Using it to piggyback IR remote signals using a cheap transceiver is just one of many uses for it.

Yeah. People forget that DisplayPort was designed from the get-go by VESA for the computer market. I use it at home and love it. I run triple 24" LCD's on my desk in an Eyefinity setup using DisplayPort. That's its niche and it works well.

Home theater is a different animal and it takes a lot longer for standards to change / be adopted. All Joe Consumer cares about is that he can buy any device with HDMI and plug them up together. ARC is pretty useful for what it does. I rarely use it, but when I do, I think it's pretty nifty. I also know someone using an HDMI dongle on both ends to pass the IR signals from his remote into his media closet. It's a $30 solution that also works well in taking advantage of one of HDMI's many consumer-friendly features (the ethernet channel).
