If my receiver won't work guess I'll be buying a new one. I'm an old retired civil engineer so electronics is not my speciality but I would like to know why the old unit won't pass 3D. I read up on the cables and saw the old 1.x nomenclature was changed. Also read that old cables can and do pass 3D and was hoping same for my A/V receiver so I could spend more $ on speakers rather than buying new receiver.
Since you have all the equipment ready to go, I would say give it a shot and see if it works.
Below is the official answer from HDMI.org about forward compatability of devices.http://www.hdmi.org/manufacturer/hdmi_1_4/hdmi_1_4_faq.aspx#4
Can older HDMI (v.1.0 - 1.3) devices be firmware-upgraded to take advantage of the new features introduced in HDMI 1.4?
Probably not. Most of the new features introduced in HDMI 1.4 will require a new HDMI chip to enable, and cannot be upgraded via firmware.
The only devices that I know about that can be upgraded via firmware for 3D are the older Sony PS3s.
