I need Deep Color support and the Pioneer PROFH-HD1 and other ultraexpensive models don't have it yet

Kind of a dumb article. HDMI 1.3 offers very little in real terms. Better compatibility seems to be the only real benefit.

He's hung up on better than 8 bit color, when the delivery codecs (for sure), and the panel drivers (likely) only support 8 bit.

Here's to more confusion with the A/V crowd!
