Exactly. You buy the "high speed" cables because they are more likely to work. Regular cables are only (supposedly) spec'ed up to 1080i. But in any given connection, they MIGHT work at 1080p. ...

Yes, Fox is likely to blow off OPPO regardless of whether it's their problem.

I just find it odd that more people aren't miffed at Fox for having shipped a disc without adequate QA. It's not as...
