I know receiver companies like Sherwood are working on it now but I have yet to see HDMI 1.3 on any flat HDTVs.

I belive the new Epson projector (a KILLER BTW for under $3,000) has it.

I will say this: HDMI 1.2 does 1080p just fine. Its the lame ass HDCP copy protection that gives us all issues when using Blu-ray and HD DVD. That isn't going away. We can only hope it gets better.

HDMI 1.3 for audio is a big update but I don't know a player that has it yet or many discs.

HDMI 1.3 for video allows 1440p and I have yet to see or hear of anything at that level yet. 1080p has been a tough enough upgrade. For nearly EVERYONE 1080i is the best they can do (cable and sat feeds in HD).

In the end, I wouldn't worry about HDMI 1.3 when buying a new set. Worry about getting 1080p resolution. Make sure you get it ISF calibrated. Make sure it has enough HDMI inputs. Make sure you buy BR and HD DVD.

The ISF ROCKS.

Our readers are willing to pay the fee to get the most from their sets from people who spent the time educating themselves and practicing the craft.

I went through ISF training with Joel - it is intense and requires practice I don't give it. I do however feel more solid on my basic video know-how...
