From what I've seen it takes most manufacturers (at least the one's I pay attention to) a little over a year from "Initial Release date" to introduce a new HDMI version. Since AFAIK HDMI 2.0 has not had an initial release yet....
We are probably looking around middle/late 2014 at best.
HDMI 2.0 could be a serious HW challenge since from a performance POV it's very different. Hopefully, it won't be the mess that 1.3 was for many of the smaller (or non-Jap) companies. From a users POV I'm not sure how important it really will be. 4K/60fps from what source? Streaming?
I would MOST appreciate "Dynamic Auto Lip-sync", if it really works.
Anthem has had shortages of the 700 before. It took a few extra months for me to get my third and last 700, because of a shortage at the time. Personally, I think they had made some "tweaks" to it. The way it handled MUTE and NO SIGNAL was different from the previous 2 700's. Didn't solve the problem, however.
