I'm thinking about buying one today but I have some reservations. Sorry if this has been covered a million times, but I'm at work right now and I don't really have a whole lot of time to spend searching.
1. Will it upconvert over component? I'm thinking no, but it would be nice. I'd like to keep the one cable to TV connection I have now with my panny dvd player and dish network dvr which both run through my reciever that does not have HDMI.
2. If I must use HDMI is there a setting to turn off the audio over HDMI? I use my television speakers as my center channel via the external amp output on my reciever and if there is HDMI audio being passed I won't be able to do this anymore.
3. The A2 uses software for upconversion if I'm getting my facts straight. How is it in comparison to something like the A20 and XA2 which upconvert via a chip?
