Thanks Worf. I like the Google option, especially the toslink capability of the 3.5mm plug. In my case I don't need it, but a nice feature.

Do you have the X1 remote that communicates via RF? It "talks" to the X1 box over radio frequencies and will control other components like TV and an AVR using IR. The RF capable remote is silver, not...

The issue was resolution indeed. Both older displays would resolve 1080i, but not the 1080p that my 'new' X1 cable box was feeding them. I re-set the res on the cable box to 1080i and all is good....

Hi,

I've had a RS46 for about a year now and watch a good bit of 3D on it. Given that my HT is a bat cave, I've been pleased with the PQ in 3D. I run mine on a Silverticket AT 120" screen and it...
