I didn't see anything in the manual of your TV supporting anything more than 480i. But your WD media player should have a composite output, no?

Does your HDMI converter support SD resolutions?

As noted above, XP has always supported multiple cores (in one physical CPU). I'm running a box with a Core 2 Duo.

If you like your Z-5500's, why not just get a new receiver only? Connect up the speakers normally, but use the 5500 analog input for the sub.

If it's just OTA HD, the video on your T60 doesn't sound like a deal breaker.

Everything will depend more on the system requirements of your specific tuner dongle.

Rez was fantastic, so I'll likely pick this up soon.

The Kinect controls seem to suit this game very well, but I won't get one for only a single game.

I also tried the demo this weekend. Played one game, and was disappointed that the music is not the same. Quite fun, but I'll hang onto my DC for a little while longer.

Double check your 360 remote settings. From what I remember, it can accept commands from a generic MCE type remote or a specific XBox remote.

Your TV is likely SD only.

1024x768 over S-video is not the same as 720p.

If the display seems fine and readable, leave it at that. But you may find that 1024x768 over VGA to a computer...
