Personally the $800 seems reasonable for the used 8350, screen, mount & HDMI cable. How used is the PJ in terms of hours on the unit and bulb (if it's a 2nd, or 3rd)? I see a motorized Elite on...

One 4dB splitter shouldn't be killing your signal off of a distribution amp! Maybe your signal at the input to your amp isn't up to snuff.

I'm not understanding your coax dilemma. If you have a PC and are thinking of using a HDHomeRun Prime, where does the coax figure in? Once you turn in the cable boxes and rent a cablecard ($1.95 ~...

REALIZE, of course, the sound on a TV is 2-channel STEREO, not AC3 or HD-Audio... or are you wanting to pass AC3 out of the TV to an external audio system?

I'd take a look at the BR player and the disc -- is it BR or DVD? Is the player somehow set to 480p not 1080p? Hook the player DIRECTLY to the 8350 with a 6' HDMI cable and see what it does -- this...

It's the same as answering "does your TV have speakers you want to pass sound to?" You want to say NO thereby the HTPC will "see" the AVR as the terminal audio device!

Could simply be a fan bearing.
