There’s a lot of potential for the new HDMI standard. Sure, there’s a bit of oddness – like creating cables specifically for 1080i displays – but HDMI 1.4 can do a lot that 1.3 just couldn’t. With HDMI 1.4 you can send an Ethernet signal along with the video and audio, or send a 4K video signal. Onkyo’s new receivers are all HDMI 1.4 compatible, but they focus on the other functions of the standard.
