Regarding the volume level of the analog out, I found that on the A1 the volume was lower on Phantom of the Opera. When I played other disk (only had 2) the volume was higher.
Might want to verify that the lower analog out is due to hardware and not a single HD-DVD.
Also, did you find out if the multi speaker setup test tone is correct??
