Yep, they did go with HDMI 1.1, so to get the new codecs, you'll need a player that can pass them as LPCM.... This is part of the issue I see with this piece. We still haven'

t settled on HOW these new codecs will be sent to pre/pros and receivers. Many are going to bitstream, but some cling to PCM. If sometime down the road, it becomes bitstream, then you might find it hard to get a Blu-ray player to go with this piece. Sorry, just my inherent paranoia and uncertainty in this ever changing market...
