Only specific firmwares will work with clear QAM. You need to load the right one. I don't remember off the top of my head which version you need for the II with the switch, but it's in this thread...

I agree, but I don't think his AVR has HDMI at all.

For surround from your TV, why wouldn't you use ARC over HDMI?

Glad to hear it. So is the case plastic or metal? Did you get silver or black? I saw some silver ones on ebay I've been on the fence about.

Uses your PC as a DVR. Works with a regular remote like Tivo or other DVR, but no subscription fees, unlimited storage, whole home functionality, plus does everything a PC can do. I use a $150 PC to...

All of those have the same ancient interface. Get a Tivo or use WMC (better than Tivo, IMO, and cheaper). However, nothing can improve the picture except a different service, like DirecTV.

Only a handful of networks are 720p. Most are 1080i. I agree it's never going to match blu-ray, but should be a small improvement.

Here's how it will go down. Mostly static HD images are going to...

Oppo is the only player with HDMI IN that I know of. So looks like your decision has been made for you. Region free is going to cost $100 or so extra.

I realize the video processing of external...

Just keep in mind Chromecast is a PITA to control since it doesn't work with a remote.

FWIW, Google DNS didn't work for me. I had to change my hosts file. My guide broke months ago. This fix has worked ever since then and still works today.

Why do you think you need multiple HDMIs? Do you really need region free as well?

I can tell you right now that virtually no players have all the streaming apps you mentioned, so a separate...

Since RF or IP is 99.9% as reliable as RS232, reliability isn't really the main benefit. Feedback is (displaying volume level on your remote, for example). Whatever you decide, you'll need your...

I strongly disagree with the last 2 posts. Many (most) TVs won't pass both DD and DTS from HDMI sources to optical outputs or even to ARC, downmixing one or both to stereo. Definitely need to run...

Just a few points:

- You can plug a dongle into Fire TV for IR control
- All Harmony remotes program the same as the 650 (not nearly as configurable as your old Pronto)

Netflix limits its streams to just 2 max (4 max costs extra). If the price was right, I could probably even go for U-verse. After all, price is a major reason most of us settle for Netflix instead of...
