I keep seeing this term used when i look at receivers. Can anyone break it down in newbie terms for me please?


Thanks,

From what I understand (don't hold me to this,) it works like this.


If it says HDMI repeating, it likelythandles HDMI audio. 1.1 repeating should mean it does not handle 1.2/1.3 audio such as TrueHD bitstream.


Switching means it can only passthrough 1.3 material such as TrueHD bitstream, Deep Color etc.


When I see HDMI 1.1 repeating/1.3 switching, I take that to mean that it can handle MPCM, but not bitstream, and no Deep Color. It can pass 1.3 through to your TV, but you would likely get no audio then.

Ok for my purpose i have a PS3 that i watch Blu-Rays on. That id like to use HDMI for video and audio but get the full functions of audio that are possible from the PS3. So something like this below would not be ideal is that correct?


HDMI V1.3 Switching/ V1.1 Repeating: 3-In/1-Out


Should i be looking for something like "HDMI V1.3a Switching/Repeating: 3-In/1-Out" instead?

The PS3 can't do bitstream (yet?) so it doesn't need HDMI 1.3 for that.


There's Deep Color which is HDMI 1.3, but I would not worry too much about that.
