I did a search on all the threads but didn't see my problem listed.
Just got an HD-A2 and hooked it up to my CRT SD TV while I am waiting on delivery of a HDTV Plasma. I just wanted to test the HD-A2 to see if it works properly in regular sd-dvd format.
I have it (correctly) hooked up via component cables and for the life of me I cannot even the get menu to appear.
A purple fuzzy scroll appears when the player is turned on. I can't get the menu to appear to even set the output at 480. I tried playing a known good dvd and I have the same purple fuzzy scroll screen and zero audio.
I don't know what else to try next.
