I have an Onkyo TX-NR5007 AVR that supports HDMI 1.3a. The new Samsung Qled TV's are HDMI 2.0b I think. I am thinking that I will need a new AVR to handle the output of the Samsung Qled TV's. Am I wrong?

I think I left an important point out -- I have not purchased the TV, yet I am trying to find out what
I might be facing if I do buy the TV.
 
Is very simple, ANY move toward a 4K capable TV, AVR also needs updating.

Now you can hold off AVR upgrade by doing the following: LET TV SWITCH VIDEO and LET AVR SWITCH Audio. Rewire so that all Sources go directly to TV, and a single Optical from TV to AVR (5007 appears to not have HDMI ARC). And re-program your universal remote as needed. Optical can only do COMPRESSED surround.
