    G2 Toshiba HD DVD players: HD-A2 $499, HD-XA2 $999

    Also,for those thinking that they cant get DDTrueHD 5.1 on the A2, as long as you have HDMI of any verison, it will work. BUt it you dont have HDMI, then yeah, it looks like either new reciever or the XA2. I dont think its too bad a deal to be honest, we probably got away with more than we...

    Yamaha 2600 help..cant get into menu?

    Well i managed to get a small tv and set it up that way, it was pretty painless. It did strike me as strange that it cant be done without it, as in the manual it states, run the auto setup through the GUI or through unit, for this example we'll use GUI. And then it doesnt state anywhere how to...

    Firmware v2.0 now available -- adds TrueHD 5.1, fixes 720p output

    Yes. TrueHD over analog is decoded in the A1 and passed through to the receiver in its lossless format. Over digital-Coax,Optical,HDMI 1.1, it is re-encoded in DTS at a certain bit rate, 3mbs, could be wrong. So yes, to take full advantage of TrueHD you need to continue using analog untill HDMI...

    Firmware v2.0 now available -- adds TrueHD 5.1, fixes 720p output

    Well it would work over HDMI 1.1 but it would be re-encoded into a DTS bitstream. You would still need Analog 5.1 to receive proper TrueHD. HDMI 1.3 is needed for digital. PS. Paul knows more about that subject than me :)

    Advice on Projector Screens please...

    So what happens to the bars when you use a screen though? They do just sit under the border of the screen?

I really wanted to get a screen and apart from models etc there is some things I dont quite understand. I see that they come is aspects 16:9 and 4:3. For me its just for DVD so obviously...

    Dali centre speaker shielding problems

    Yeah as soon as i pull the speaker away, the color completely goes. As soon as it enters the top to the tv it begins. Will it damage the tv if i have it on top without the tv on? Its a bit dissapointing, the Dali centre isnt really a budget speaker. I mean, i shouldnt have to pay $1000 for a...
