MHR is encrypted so copy protection of the audio stream is not circumvented, though I'm sure that Meridian would need approval from the HDMI governing body to implement it. Such approval may account for the delay in providing an HDMI solution. Although the 861 V5 and V6 have been hinted at, I'd be surprised (but pleasantly so) if the were introduced at CEDIA.
