Im thinking of buying a Onkyo amp, and from what Ive read there is a feature called audio return channel, but it needs HDMi 1.4 does the panasonic V10 support this and any advantage of having such a feature or its it a gimmick

Unfortunately not, you need a 2010 model Panny for that (HDMI 2) :) yes there is an advantage to it if you have a 1.4 HDMI ARC Amp. it can be useful & negates the need for an Optical out of the TV. :)

ARC is not a gimmick but there are limitations. I have just gone this route and have been pleasantly surprised thus far. Have a look here http://www.avforums.com/forums/13600978-post13.html for more details.
ARC will pass 5.1 from the Internal tuners & of course if the source is connected to the Onkyo rather than the TV via HDMI except for Sky HD of course which does not do 5.1 via HDMI & relies upon the Optical or Coaxial input.
