Yes, it's a straight HDMI cable from the 360 to the receiver. Only stereo comes out.

PS3 outputs a surround signal, as does the Apple TV and the Blu-ray player.

I'll take a peak at the mobile...

I picked one up and finally got around to hooking it up.

Honestly, the bulb is rated up to 5,000 hours in eco mode. Let's be conservative and say it dies at 3,000 hours, that's only 8 pennies an hour. :-)

It's not an analog signal. So long as all the zero's and one's get there... what else would the cable do? Add zero's and one's?

Sheesh. This was epic. Love when I discover such amazing projects as this that completely snuck by me. Slow clap for everyone.

Just to ask a stupid question, but have you done a panel alignment yet? That may crisp things up slightly if there's a pixel or two of misalignment and you haven't done so yet.

Blacks are what I'm most curious to see when mine shows up. (Also in the delayed category.)

Look on the bright side, as of last night, it's back up to $2,499 everywhere. (Minus the dealers who aren't authorized.)

Oh really? Is it a specific mm size or do you have to do a little work to properly attach it? (I suppose I could wait until the projector got here, but it gives me something to obsess over while I...

An Apple TV 2 only does 720p. That's the biggest hit right there in my mind.

Makes sense. But if that's truly the case, then I can probably wait a few years for the ecosystem to be really humming. No sense in buying a receiver just to show off the logos on the front.
