    What's that got to do with being able to get Dolby TrueHD and DTSHD sound? I thought the whole deal HDMIv1.3 was the audio, so why would the TV need to be HDMIv1.3?

    Wow, HDMI 1.3 has more things that affect TV sets than sound, ya know?

    -Deep Color

    -New colorspace (Xxycc the new world standard)

    -Auto lip sync

    For everything about HDMI and v1.3

    I didn't know any of that. Thanks for the info. The receivers will still be must buys if you're watching HDDVD or BD. You can always get a new TV when they're available. Any word on when displays with v1.3 will be out?

    I think this fall we should see the first HDMI v1.3 TV set. If you already have a recent TV, hold off on it though. While the video features of HDMI 1.3 are nice, it is not worth upgrading a TV right when it comes out (unless you were going to upgrade anyways).

    BTW, will they actually use audio like Dolby TrueHD? I remember reading something about that being 18mbps. That means for a 2 hour movie, this audio stream will use up a bit over 15GB. Even with 50GB or 51GB capacity on discs, that is a little excessive. Maybe we will see it in Special releases on those HD DVD triple layer discs.

    AFAIK 18 Mbps is a maximum number (peak bitrate) for both Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio (for HD DVD's). However, both lossless schemes use variable bitrate which average from 1.4 Mbps (16/48 Warner HD DVD's) and 3.4 Mbps (recent 24/48 Universal HD DVD's) and depends on the complexity of the soundtrack. This amounts to around 1.2 to 4.2 Gigs for a 2 hour movie.

    I was definitely planning on buying the TX-SR805 as soon as it was available. Would you recommend holding off on that too. These receivers are starting to be like PC's, as soon as you buy one 3 months later a new and better one at the same price comes out.

    Like error5 mentioned in another thread, you'll also need a player that has HDMI 1.3 to take advantage of the receiver's decoding of DTS HD-MA and Dolby TrueHD.

    The Toshiba XA2 is v1.3 right? Let me ask this before I go spending a couple of grand. If I've got the Toshiba XA2 and one of the new Onkyo receivers, will I be able to listen to Dolby Digital Plus, TrueHD, and DTS-HD through the speakers that I have? They're some what decent speakers(Atlantic Technology). I haven't read anything that says that the speakers need to be upgraded to here the next gen audio.

    You're right. You don't have to upgrade your speakers and you should be able to get the new sound formats fine with the Onkyo. One thing though, if you have a 5.1 setup right now and if your room can handle it, you'll have the option to add 2 more speakers for a 7.1 setup.

    I do have the 5.1 setup (2 Fronts) a center (2 surrounds) and a subwoofer. If I were to add 2 more speakers, where would they go in the setup? I'm guessing on the sides, but I want to make sure.

    The only video inputs that my TV have are component and DVI, would this cause any problems as far as running a HDMI-->DVI from the new receiver? I use a HDMI-->DVI from my DirecTV box and it works fine.

    It shouldn't be a problem.
