Could simply be a belief that DVD-V maximizes chances to sell copies (I know more people who have a DVD player than a Blu-ray player, even with HDTVs, in 2016). After all, the DVD-V will play in the...

I got this as a birthday present last week and loved it. Was too busy to catch it at the cinema but will make up for it by watching this fairly often. Disappointing it did not make enough money for a...

It won't do it. The optical output of the A1000 will not carry any audio that is also being output from an HDMI source (won't transcribe the HDMI audio to optical). The only way I can see it working...

Just got one and it's also V112. Hope that's the last of them as the update seems a bit painful (though perhaps it's easier on a Mac? If so, I'm fine.).

That would be nice as it would be helpful to see one (even under less than ideal conditions) and get a sense of it before committing to buying one. I'm old fashioned that way (when I can be ;) ).
