Neil, I don't know of any way to use the internal speakers as center channel.
In my current setup, I route all audio from my higher quality inputs (HTPC, DVD player, HDTV receiver) into a separate receiver/5.1 speaker system - and the audio for the lower quality signals (SDTV receiver, VCR) goes to the TV directly. I am out of town till tomorrow. When I get home, I shall feed the audio out from the TV to my receiver/5.1 speaker system and find out how it performs.

Firewire is a two way port that allows data and instructions to be sent between the TV and other devices.
I have not seen the RCA set yet (due in Aug.) but I like the feature set. .
GadgetFreak, thanks for the info on RCA announcements - intriguing. Firewire was hot for a while, then DVI seemed to take over, and now RCA is introducing Firewire back again. Can anyone shed light on pros and cons of Firewire vs. DVI.

My suggestion to readers: If you already have a progressive scan DVD player with your HLN-507W, I suggest you perform the same comparison before writing off your own player.
blackbr, I shall post this advice in the guide, along with your experience. Your Denon DVD player has the Silicon Image/DVDO PureProgressive (SiI504) Decoding Engine - which according to Denon is the highest quality progressive decoding engine available. I wonder if anyone has done a comparison with Faroudja FLI2300, the chip in Samsung. Also, I am wondering if you plan to try out the Bravo D1 (or Samsung 931) player. If you do, please share your experience.
