    Hi, i'd read that when the Toshiba's first came out, the HDMI pic quality was lacking. Did the firmware upgrade correct this? Is the pic quality comparable to component now? I just find it very easy and convenient to just have the one cord to plug in. [​IMG]

    If I recall correctly, Toshiba issued a firmware update that fixes the clipping of BTB and Peak White levels over HDMI. But I'm not sure if the old firmware did PC-level expansion in RGB mode either. I don't own an HD-A1 (yet).

    I stille like component a little better for HD-DVD's after 1.4 . I like HDMI for DVD's though,
