HE brought it up. If HE did not want it talked about, HE should not have mentioned it. You are complaining to the wrong person...complain to the guy who essentially said "You must believe me because I am claiming something on the Internet that I refuse to support", not the one who laughed at him for expecting anyone to believe him.
Of course companies can release non-compliant chips if they wish...many have done it in the past. None of the non-compliant chips can claim to be compliant, though. 802.11n as a prime example. HDMI 2.0 is rapidly approaching a year late (originally was to be released in second half 2012). As a manufacturer, would you bet your next AVR on an unreleased, and still being updated, spec?
You appear to be obsessed with telling me what I can and cannot post. Your own advice, you should take it. Expecting others to do as you say when you are not doing it is quite silly. BTW, I work closely with the Royal Family and know a lot of stuff that is about to happen but is being hidden, yet I cannot tell you any of it and you better not ever mention that I said such a thing in public. You believe me, right? Right?
Not sure where you think you're getting with all this hyperbole...everything I stated still stands.
Yes, I think it's plausible that we'll see a 2.0 HDMI AVR by the end of the year. If you think they cannot have the schematic of this chip all-but finalized at this point and are simply waiting for the cementing of the spec to start production, I don't know what to tell you. Ditto for the reality that said production would ramp up to the thousands almost immediately, and yes, they could very well be inside AVRs in 3-4 months.
YES he brought up his position in the industry and then stated that he couldn't divulge deeper info. Only to have YOU specifically demand the aforementioned. "Must" believe me? Never read that anywhere, sorry. Again (sigh), you can choose to believe him or not. "Laughing" at him or going on about it accomplishes nothing but extending what you're purporting as "non truths". I'm confused again. Just let him lie or implement your "ignore" functionality.
I'm not speaking of "non compliant" chips. Again, you seem to be missing the big picture. Surely you understand that's not what's being proposed here? I won't speak for anything that Onkyo's "betting on" but again look at their track record of being THE AVR manu that stuffs their boxes full of bleeding edge tech. Believe what you need to believe yourself, no one here is forcing you to take a position one way or another.
Your royal family "analogy" is abysmal, by the way. There is a very specific prediction going on here that runs to the contrary of what most are expecting, not some goofy "something big is coming" arrow into the sea. Big distinction, then.
The fact that you cannot get over the reality that someone- like millions of others on the www- cannot disclose their identity is your own problem. I'm not telling you or anyone else what to post, but instead just asking to perhaps avoid texting the same thoughts over and over. And yes, I WILL take my own advice and this will be the end of my participation in this juvenile nonsense.
Again. Choose not to believe. Fine. Then when he's wrong you can return to this thread and beat your chest about how correct you were. I'm sure you'll return to do just the opposite if Onkyo walks on water (at least in your eyes, anyway) and is able to produce AVRs that will work with HDMI 2.0 by the end of the year.
I see it all the time on AVS.
