It seems like a good idea to get a receiver that is 3D ready.  It appears to me the the Yamaha RXV series is NOT 3D ready, but their RXA series is.  Is that correct?  I was really liking the 1900 until this notion struck me.  So, do I need to strike the 1900 off of my short list?

I changed the title in this thread because I discovered after a little more research that the 667 and 1065 do have HDMI 1.4


However, I am most interested in the 1900 and cannot find anywhere if the HDMI is 1.4


Anyone know for sure?

 
Thanks,


Nick

I don't think it does. It, along with the 3900, Z-7 and Z-11 are really last years models. The fact that no mention of 3-D is found on Yamaha's home page for those receivers is pretty good proof that they don't support 3-D. 3-D is the buzz word this year. Stick with a model that clearly states 3-D is supported. If it is supported then it will be mentioned front and center. You won't have to look for it.


The 367 also fails to mention 3-D on the Overview page. I'm sure it dosen't support it either.


"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

Thanks Gene, I'm sure you are correct.  If a feature like that is not mentioned up front, then it doesn't have it.  Well, there are lots of other options.

My Samsung BD-C6900 3-D Blu-Ray player connects through my RX-V1900 via HDMI 1.3 to my Samsung 3-D TV.  3-D works like a charm!

... well, let me revise my earlier statement. I was able to watch exactly one 3D Blu-ray disc through my Rx-V1900. I recently bought Avatar in 3D and my Blu-ray wouldn't even attempt to play the disc while connected through the 1900. I had to connect HDMI directly to the TV and live with stereo sound. **sigh**. Looks like I either need to by a better Blu-ray player (I absolutely hate my Samsung BD-C6900!) or upgrade my receiver. Hmmm. Panasonic Blu-ray player, $150. RX-A2020, $1600. Tough choice. :rolleyes:
