Hey, just finally decided on purchasing the Sony BDP-S360. It'll be my newest piece of equipment for my cheap HT so far since I make gradual upgrades. What's this thing about external memory? Is it through the USB port to a USB device? I'll only be using component as video to my Sony STR-DE598 6.1 receiver which doesn't have the lossy and lossless audio support. I figure that'll be the next item to upgrade, the receiver. Perhapsa receiver which has at the most 5 component ins, a few HDMI (my TV is just a 25" 4:3 Daewoo flatscreen with component, it's what would fit in the room and my budget when I bought it.), full 7.1 with support for all the current HD disc audio codecs. My current receiver only supports whatever the specifications list online. I don't really mind at the moment. So for sound, would it be a better idea to feed it into the reciever via digital coaxial audio or just analog it? I have a component switcher since the receiver hasn't enough component ins. My Comcast DVR box and Oppo multi-region player are being run through the switcher and then to the receiver. My XBOX 360, which got the E 74 error (I don't even have a printer to print out the mailing slip thing), is directly run to the receiver via the component/digital optical audio inputs. So as I'm stating, should I just run the cables of the Blu-ray player, when I receive it of course, through the switcher? I know it'll be the component through the switcher but I'm debating running the audio through the analog inputs on the receiver. Would I have better audio through the digital coaxial cable or through the analog?
