How important is it for a newer (HDMI/upconverting/upscaling) receiver to be/have HDCP compliance/decoders. I was looking at Onkyo receivers and noticed not many of the -7 series has them but even the low end denons do.

Is this relevant at all? I plan on passing movies through the receiver to take advantage of the upscaling/converting

thanks

HDCP compliance is simply the High definition compliance protocol and is required by any receiver, TV or DVD/BluRay player using HDMI. You simply want a receiver to be able to decode the latest uncompressed audio formats (TruHD, DTS Master audio) and at the very least pass through 1080p video

Hello,
HDCP is utterly essential. It is required on both ends of the HDMI chain for there to be a picture and sound.
Cheers,
JJ

And some tend to be more reliable at it than others, particularly when using long cable runs.
