Kevin-
That is good news, indeed. A few moments (30 seconds?) after the startup screen I get a very fast flash of colors across the screen. This sounds similar to what you describe. It doesn't seem...

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...

I like the idea speakers on the Sony 900. They give you the option of just using TV speakers to watch the nightly news or using your HT speakers for Blu-Ray. Honestly, surround sound is wasted on...

You're right, if all you want to do is encode the video to MP4 and convert the audio to AAC audio, pyTivo and Handbrake are probably equally easy. I find Handbrake easier, because it makes it is...

What do you see when you press the Info button?
