Do I really need a 3D ready receiver?
Thanks for any input, i really don't wanna have to sell this and find another one since it was about $700 for the receiver I think. Got it a few months ago and wasn't planning on going 3D

Option B: A brand new 3D capable receiver with upconversion for ~$500 for the convenience of eliminating a few cables and not selecting different inputs on your TV.

I have like I said the Panasonic 50" 3D Plasma (VT20 I believe it is) and it came with the panasonic 3d blu ray player.
It does look quite amazing and I am very happy and pleased with the 3D (regardless of the fact that there isn't much software out, but Avatar 3D is crazy), the tv itself has an HDMI ARC (Audio Return X) (where C I don't know, Channel maybe)? I'll have to read the manual on that.
I guess my only option is to use an optical cable, I know I'm getting a $200 GC for futureshop for christmas this year but obviously I'd need quite a bit more. Is it worth it to eliminate all those cables? probably not... I know the audio will still be very good via an optical cable.
And no the player doesn't have 2 hdmi outs, seems kind of pointless but I'm wishing now that I got a 3d ready receiver since they werent THAT much more, just HDMI1.4 instead of 1.3...
I hate this HDMI 1.x crap, why dont they just make it the fastest they can and leave it at that
Thanks for the input everyone.
