Eron-
Would you kindly give us an example of the 65" full array 1080P TV that you're referring to? I agree with your advice on getting a good TV. It seems that quality control is lax at times...

Is the problem that the MP4 video will not play or the AAC audio will not play. I think I read someplace that 5.1 AAC audio in a MP4 is not standard. Look at the media info for the output from...
