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?
