I just hope that the individuals/newbies that are clueless of high def know that they will need and HDMI cable to obtain high def from thier HDTV. I saw a woman in Walmart returning one because the picture did not look "clear". I quickly explained what she needed and how to set it up, but she decided it was extra cost in purchasing the HDMI cable. She tried to connect the A2 with the supplied RCA cables.
Some folks just don't know what it takes to get a HD picture in their HDTV. My cousin had his Directv HD reciever connected via an S video cable. Once I made the connection with HDMI to his HDTV, he was amazed on the difference.
I think Toshiba and monoprice should get together and abandon the damn RCA plug that is supplied. Seriously, what is the point of putting it in there? It looks like it can cause a bunch more damage than any tiny amount of good.
I bought this for my TV downstairs which is a 4 or 5 year old Mitsubishi 55" widescreen that does 1080i over component. I was planning on buying a new lcd in a few months, but I guess I'll just use this upstairs in my room for now. I have a samsung 30" WS CRT that does hdmi.
