No just HDMI 2.0, you also need HDCP 2.2 for future proof. Just have a fast transceiver is not enough. HDCP must be supported at hardware level. Without HDCP 2.2 support, it will just like HDMI/DVI...

So, now you are saying you have to pay for performance? A Yugo could very well have more features and functionalities than a Ferrari.

I won't called it 'extenders' because of two things it can't do:

If you are talking about using ARC to bring the TV app sound to AVR, I have made a few posts about this topic in this thread. It's not the easiest to do and you don't want to keep ARC on all the time.

You must mean the new Xbox One which doesn't support WMC extender at all. Only the Xbox 360 supports WMC Extender. And the newer Xbox 360 should be the smallest, not bigger.
