This isn't a computer question, but a home theater question.

Customer Question
This isn't a computer...

This isn't a computer question, but a home theater question. I have a new QLED and Samsung 9500 BD player. I'm using an older Onkyo A/V receiver that I pretty sure has HDMI 1.0 jacks on the back.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your media player? How old is it?

I wondering about replacing that ONKYU receiver with a newer version ONKYO that can handle the 4K world. Any suggestions?

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your media player?

I accidentaly hit the return key so this question is devided into two segments on your end.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

Just that I'm currently using an INKYO home theater speaker set up.

Quick question (since I don't have the model number of the TV), is your TV also 4K compatible?

I'm assuming it is, and would have to be in order to gain the benefits of a 4K receiver. That said, please respond back about your TV, and also- Onkyo makes about a half dozen 4K models- what is your budget and what type of power output/features are you looking for?
