    Just got my new Panny F85 player. I have a projection TV (Mitsubishi 50" 4:3 w/o progressive scan) and a Denon 2802 receiver.

    I will be hooking up to the Denon with both the analog 5.1 outputs and the Toslink. I'll connect to the TV using a component video cable in interlaced mode.

    Any setup "gotchas" that I need to watch out for? The manual sucks big-time! [​IMG]

    TIA

    Pretty straight forward, really. I can't recall exactly on the F85, but previous Panasonic DVD players have had the DTS output set to OFF as a default, so you might want to check that.

    If you had a progressive-scan TV, I'd tell you to make doubly sure that the player was in 480p mode because it's not as straight forward as it could be.
