Perhaps you should check out if there are issues via component vid also.
Per SonyDude's query, is there a fw upgrade for your Samsung? Do you have the HL-S6187W or the HL-T6187S? In the case of the latter, there is a April 2008 fw upgrade at the Samsung site.
Also, you mentioned fw upgrades and downgrades earlier. I assume you were referring to the XA2. Which are you on now--v3.0, 4.0 or something earlier?
Also, have you looked at whether the order in which you turn components on impacts whether the problem presents or not? I know it's counterintuitive that a problem you did not have before suddenly appears with no change in power up order, but I put little past HDMI/HDCP hoodoo voodoo. Try starting at the display and working backwards.
If all of those options bear no fruit/insight (and notwithstanding more helpful comments from someone else), I'd call the Tosh "HD DVD Concierge" and see what they have to say.
