I'm looking into getting a new lcd and want it be 100% future proof. I stumbled across HDMI 1.3 but know next to nothing about it. Is it worth waiting for? What kinds of benefits will it provide in simple terms? better PQ etc? When are lcds being released compatible with it? The followings from Wikipedia "HDMI 1.3 Released 22 June 2006.  - Increases single-link bandwidth to 340 Mhz (10.2 Gbps) - Supports 30-bit, 36-bit, and 48-bit (RGB or YCbCr) color depths or over one billion colors, up from 24-bit in previous versions. - Supports xvYCC color standards. - Incorporates automatic audio syncing (lip sync) capability. - Supports output of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio streams for external decoding by AV receivers. TrueHD and DTS-HD are lossless audio codec formats used on HD DVDs and Blu-ray Discs. If the disk player can decode these streams into uncompressed audio, then HDMI 1.3 is not necessary, as all versions of HDMI can transport uncompressed audio. - Availability of a new mini connector for devices such as camcorders. - PlayStation 3 is the first product available on consumer market with HDMI 1.3.
