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. Posted Image

i love the PQ of the HDMI connection....i tried the component and thought it looked washed out....and the sound was much better thru HDMI for me as well.....

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,
