In this case, other HT devices (http://www.dead50.net/youtube-supported-devices/) (AppleTV, Roku, Chromecast, and more) were supported. But no Blu-ray players.

My 103 shows that screen for a very long time when exiting YouTube, but it eventually goes away. I think it took 5 minutes the last time. What is so time-consuming about exiting this app???

I'm seeing a symptom I'm pretty sure wasn't there originally.



Pause a Blu-ray disc.
Play.
Disk starts to play, then stalls for 1-2 seconds, then finally resumes.

Everybody says the 8802 sounds better. But rumor has it that the following year's AVPs will have new & improved Audyssey. I guess I'll wait for the 8803?

The only way to focus is via the PJ's Focus control. Until you get it right, everything will look soft or blurry. Persevere.

I can't quite parse what dt744190 wrote. But I don't see any such change. You can still put commands for any device on the Activity screen, as long as the device is involved in the activity.

The sparrows remind me of David Carradine's "Caine" character in "Kung Fu".
