Connect a long, cheap component or s video cable to your current HDMI cable and pull it out. Then do the same but connect two HDMI cables. You are going to have to do this some day for Blu ray 4K anyway so might as well get it out of the way now. Sony even gives a part number in their manual for high speed HDMI cables so maybe they're not as expensive?
I will report soon whether the onkyo/integra can pass it soon.
Joe its more the run of cable, just plain awkward at the moment for even the basic HDMI single run. I get Audioquest at a v good price anyway, so that's right, it's not really a $$ issue at all. The difficultly is the run itself. Let's say this, a portion sneaks under a rug under my coffee table on top of my hardwood floors, that were cable routed to solely have an original thin run of speaker cable like over 10 years ago into each corner (with no ability to shift even them, they managed to fix them in place somehow), and no extra space setup by the clever floating floor installers to allow further runs or even swap outs, despite my endeavors to want to HT future proof it, let alone had considered a proj as the display source way back in '99. These are floating wooden floors before anyone say just go underneath the floor- its pure 10" concrete underneath with no access (it it were my weekender, I can rewire everything pretty much myself both under and inside that room), then the downstairs floor. Even In the other property I first used projectors in, that place was easy to swap out HDMI to the projector, you could get into the walls easily and snake through HDMI. I also have a thin piece of square conduit that runs the cable as inconspicuously as can be in a in the a handily placed corner behind my proj. Perhaps this pic will give you a clearer idea. My setup really relies on the single output run. At best at the moment I could see somewhat clunkily adding a output stage switcher like I ran years ago to get around it for now with my HTPC. When you say future dual HDMI, why would that be required to run 4K if it's already running in the current HDMI 1.4a spec? Also, your not saying the proj is going to mux together to HDMI's if it was dual inputted are you? I can't see how VW1000 can do it currently- are you expecting this to happen with a future new input board being released?
