CES for us is next year. Right now there are too many odds and ends to tie up here. I will probably be going to CeBit though....

I promise you Gav and I will be at CES next year.

Here are the Pics of the new HDMI 1.3 board from Auzentech.





Looks very cool to me. Auzen is pushing the bar again. There is a Video input from your HDMI/DVI GFX card to integrate
with the audio so both are available over the HDMI cable. I will also note many of the current HDMI 1.3 solution available on the market ONLY offer plain SPDIF output formats and resolutions. The Auzen board offer new high resolution formats
The Auzen X-Tension HDMI 1.3 supports LPCM such as:
8-channel Audio : DTS HD, Dolby® Digital Plus, Dolby® True HD, Dolby Digital,
DVD-Audio, LPCM 8-channel
IEC60958(S/PDIF) : 2-channel PCM (up to 192kHz)
IEC61937 Compressed audio : Dolby® Digital, DTS digital audio

I would think that right now having HDMI 1.3 is a stretch for some and sought after by others. I think you will see future card will offer these features. Right now, having it as a add-on is a bit better in my opinion because some will want it and some won't.
