Alright, my Onkyo receivers are almost 7 years old. I'm running DD and DTS in 5.1 upstairs and downstairs. I've seen nothing in the last 7 years to make me upgrade. Now folks are sweating me for information on HDMI. I know the current iteration is a mess, what are the benefits of this tech and when witll they straighten it out?

Some basics to get you started:


The first HDMI 1.3 devices should start arriving around Xmas (such as the PS3 and the Toshiba HD DVD for Europe), but I don't expect HDMI 1.3 receivers to be available until Spring. HDMI is a continually evolving standard, so one could expect a new iteration of HDMI some 12-18 months later.
