It lists hdmi 2.0 as a free upgrade on that tv. I'm not sure how they would do that considering hdmi 1.4 cannot be upgraded to 2.0 via firmware updates as far as I know. Regardless, if you do have hdmi 2.0 on the tv, you will need a receiver with hdmi 2.0. A good value with similar power as yours is the onkyo 737. It has 5 hdmi 2.0 ports and one with hdcp 2.2. It will also be dolby atmos capable with a software upgrade in September. I just ordered a brand new one on ebay with a three year square trade warranty for about $700 total.

Anyway, I might look into a 4k tv with a more definite inclusion of hdmi 2.0. They are selling a 58 inch panasonic ax800 4k tv on panasonic's website with the inclusion of a 200 dollar 4k up converting blu ray player for $3000 shipped right now until 7/31. This tv has received very good reviews.

I have a samsung 8550 which Does have hdmi 2.0 built in. I am also going to be in the market for a new reciever as I just moved and have a marantz 8001. I had a omd-5 5.1 system in my old condo but now have a house with a "man cave" so I bought 2 omd-15 so will have a 7.1 system now but need a new reciever. 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.

Right now I'd think your current avr is just fine since there's really no 4k content out there. Once 4k becomes mainstream and there's 4k cable boxes, 4k players, all with hdmi 2.0, then you could think about upgrading.

I have not hooked up my system yet because I am waiting for a electrician to run the speaker wire. My reciever has hdmi 1.2 so I am waay behind. My question is can I hook my tv up to my reciever and get 5.1 watching netflix. Also if I run my cablebox and blueray through my reciver will the picture not be as good as running it directly to the TV?

get yourself an oppo 103D and you can bypass (the video part) the receiver and get a great picture. and it handles netflix really well. For me it's been worth every dollar. and the darby looks great.
