I am looking to buy a new Receiver that will be able to run my HDTVs, PS3, Surround sound system, Netflix Movie rentals, Apple TV, etc. I am considering a unit in the Yamaha Aventage series. But According to Best Buy's information, many of them are not "Built for Blu Ray). If you compare the RX-A1000 to the RX A-3000, the 1000 is not built for Blu Ray and yet it's a unit that costs a grand while the RX A-3000 is built for Blu Ray and it costs $1,800. What is the meaning of "Built for Blu Ray" in layman's terms? Do I need it (if so, why)? What am I missing if I don't have it?

What it means is basically the AVR has HDMI 1.3 compliance and On-Board HD audio decoding capability.
On the 3D branded receivers remember the 2 terms you will see 3D Ready and 3D passthrough. 3D ready receivers when the Blu-Ray (or any other HDMI device)I is connected to the receiver through the receivers HDMI ports and the receiver is connected to the TV the receiver must be turned on for you to get a picture. 3D Passthrough means the receiver is capable of passing the video/audio to the TV without the need for the stereo to actually be on.
