Thanks for the update
I do understand that 1.4 is a HW feature and cannot be done via a FW upgarde
What I meant when I said " I would really appreciate it if you can do something about having full support for 3D & a potential for 4k ( Quad HD ) via a future FW upgrade." was, with the new player, it should be able to support 3D right in the beginning and support for 4k could be done over time when 4k TV's are available easily in the commercial market via a FW upgrade on the new player.
I was wondering, is there a possibility for you folks to introduce 3D on the current player via a FW upgrade
The PS3 does a pretty neat job with HDMI 1.3 on it. I also know for a fact that you can have "NOT" full HD 3D support on HDMI 1.3
