Have a couple of quick questions for the tech gods here

I am in the final stages of a dedicated home theater build that has dragged on for the past 8 years or so... life just gets in the way sometimes.

I have a brand new Integra DTR-7.8 receiver and am trying to figure out what projector to purchase. Couple of concerns:

1. Will this receiver be able to run a 4K projector?

2. This receiver uses HDMI 1.3a ports. Should I consider HDMI 2.0 cables or will that not work?

Thanks in advance!!

Well, unfortunately, this projector won't work with 4K which requires the use of HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2. This has only come out in receivers over the last few years. In fact, HDMI 1.4 has been out for a number of years which replaced HDMI 1.3a.

I'm seeing this receiver as being reviewed in 2008, which puts it in excess of a decade old.

*sigh*

Used gear is not the way to go in almost all cases if you are looking to pair it with the latest technology. It will give you more headaches than it's worth. Yes, it's a deal, but you will be stuck with all that the product offers.

In this case, you will be locked at a maximum resolution of 1080p. Even then, it looks like the receiver only passes the resolution through.

Not sure what you paid, but you should check out Accessories4Less.com and some of their deals if your budget allows it. They have a number of receivers which are just a few hundred bucks and fully support HDMI 2.0.

That's what I was afraid of...

Thanks for the response! I will check around. Finding another receiver that puts out 130 Watts RMS into 8 Ohms @ 0.05% THD+N is going to be a few $$.

Paid approx 1500 back in the day.
I'll check out the link you provided!
