Do we know if the receivers that have 4k 60fps and hdmi 2.0 will be compatible with future 4k blueray players or should I wait.
Need a 7.1 with 4k also ..
Lower end 2014 receivers have at least 2 HDMI 2.0 with full 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 pass-through and then higher end having all ports being HDMI 2.0 with full 4K 60Hz 4:4:4 pass-through. Your mileage will vary on upscaling. So far only Onkyo has added HDCP 2.2 (Only on Bluray and Game Port and HDMI Out) but they are only capable of 4K 24/30Hz 4:4:4 pass-through/upscaling or 4k 60Hz 4:2:0 pass-through. It is a limitation of the current chipsets.
