One has to remember we are not interested in still photography. We are viewing movies that the director uses depth of field to artistic advantage. Everything is not in focus so adding more resolution does not make a soft background sharper.

I can't wait for consumer 4k projectors. It will make 1080p dirt cheap and I will upgrade to 1080.

I'm far more interested in HDbaseT.
I know it uses the hdmi1.4 protocols, but it offers SO much more.
At this point I will NOT be concerned with upgrading to hdmi1.4.
I will wait and see how HDbaseT takes off because I find it a far better long term solution.
I especially like HDbaseT's ability to provide up to 100 watts of power, leaving only ONE cable necessary for many displays. I've been wondering for years why we cant have just a single cable for most things.

also 100 meter cable length, cheap and easy cable and rj-45 connectors, possibly gigabit ethernet and usb support:

makes hdmi1.4 seem like a one trick pony.

Maybe I've missed something, but since when has AVS started using basically an advertisement and pass it off as a factual & informative reference?

This definitely has a bias slant to it.

Not what I've come to known as AVS style.

Can't possibly say it better myself......

4K but give me higher color resolution first. It's already on the masters now! Maybe somebody could tell us if it would fit on a BD.

For the majority of us with 27" CRT screens, it seems a bit excessive. Would my VHS tapes look any better?...

HDMI is only ever talked about from a feature set. No consideration is given to if it sounds and looks better. Clueless.

There are noticeable improvements in each generation, with the latest 1.4 chips in the Samsung 700 receiver (combined with a new generation of ALL digital amplifier) to make the largest improvement of all.

Who else hates stumbling through life clueless? In any event I upgraded to a 65" VT25 for the 3D, and was pleasantly surprised with the increased clarity, resolution and transparency in both the sound and PQ.

Note: don't assume that all 1.4 chip implementations are equal, just because its digital.

Sorry for the interruption. Now back to the Julian Hirsch mindset where everything is the clueless same.

While HDbase T might have some advantages, it has to compete with HDMI's massive instal base, and that's nothing to sneeze at.
