I'm having a problem specifically with Amazon streaming in HD. Netflix, Crackle and even youtube all stream in HD. (I can verify this through my receiver, which shows them all at 1080i. Oh, I have everything hooked up to an older HDTV through component.) For some mysterious reason, Amazon won't stream in HD. I bought a couple episodes of Dexter in HD, and when I stream them, after the connection speed test, it goes to SD. (I can tell just by looking at it, but the receiver verifies the output at 480i.) I had a free trial of Amazon Prime and every movie I tested in HD also streamed SD. I contacted Amazon Support who did tests on my speed and said they were baffled because according to their tests, I was streaming at rates that should give me HD streams. I have an 18 mbps connection, so that's not the problem. I can also stream HD through Amazon to my computer, just not through the Sony player. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any kind of setting that could cause this to happen only through Amazon?
Thanks if you have any ideas!
