I recently faced the same problem. My AVR just missed HDMI 1.4, but is too new to replace. I decided to go for the dual-HDMI Blu-Ray option and chose the Samsung 6700. So far, I am thrilled with it. This method also gives you the option of choosing to use the TV speakers or your AVR. (The former option is great for my kid's movies and simplifies the process for my wife.) If you use a regular Blu-Ray (not dual HDMI) and send the optical cable to your AVR, you will get 5.1, but not the latest HD audio options by Dolby and DTS. (Even if your AVR can't decode the HD audio tracks, the Blu-Ray player can, but can only send the signal - as PCM - to your AVR via HDMI, not optical.) Thus, in order to get 3D and HD audio capabilities, the only options are a dual-HDMI Blu-Ray player or a new AVR with HDMI 1.4 abilities.
