A member or at AVS developed a program that can modify your firmware so you can change your start-up screen into a .bmp image of your choice, with a limitation on file size. For all of the details, here's the link. Modify your firmware at your own risk. I used his program and am very happy with the option to do this. It's a pretty cool feature to add to my HT set-up. I'll post a photo of my new start-up screen. I gave a detailed rundown of how I went through the process in the AVS thread if anyone is interested in doing this. If you are, please post your results so everyone can get some ideas and to show off your work! Good luck, George Here's my start-up screen.
