Would it not make sense for 3D players to have twin HDMI outputs?
I'm not particularly interested in 3D, but the Onkyo prize questionnaire has got me thinking.
It seems like it'd be a much simpler job to put twin HDMI outputs onto 3D BD/DVD players, rather than forcing consumers who want 3D to junk their existing expensive receivers.
You could keep your existing receiver for the sound and then have a video only HDMI run straight to the TV. Yes. It means switching source inputs on both the TV & the amp, but if it means you keep that extra £1k in your pocket, it's a small price to pay.
The only people who'd have a problem, would be luddites like me whose TV only has a single HDMI input and use their receiver as a HDMI hub for a number of components.
Does anyone think this is a likely path manufacturers may go down? I think if they want 3D take-up to be anything more than bare minimum, they'll have to.
