Hopefully someone can answer this for me. I've read several threads that say that Apple TV, with Take 2 is now HDMI 1.3 compliant. I thought this was hardware related, and that the original Apple TV was 1.2 but I guess i was wrong.

Anyways, all my home theatre devices are now HDMI 1.3 with HDMI-CEC, which allows control signals to be sent back and forth to my devices. For example, my entire system can be off, and i can press play on my blu-ray player, and it will automatically (via HDMI) signal the receiver to turn on and switch to blu-ray, as well as turn on the TV to the right input. so the question is, can apple tv send these signals to my receiver? I'm hoping it works the same as my blu-ray player and TV, because my cable box is 1.2 compliant and obviously doesn't.

HDMI-CEC was implemented via version 1.3 and I thought a HW upgrade was necessary to get 1.3.

Anyone with insight would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
