Yep, and those of us that own xx50's and have TVs and players that will support DV hope that he does turn out to be wrong. I just fear that Yamaha marketing will view updating a two year old product...

Perhaps, but I've been in software development for about 50 years now and have done quite a bit of imbedded controller development. It doesn't require much difference to cause software (firmware) to...

I really wasn't laughing AT you. I was laughing because what I was suggestion was actually a joke. Very dangerous installing firmware in a device that it is not intended for. No offense intended.

Hmm, I'm not that interested in 11 amps. Actually, I'm quite pleased with using my two Outlaw 2200s for fronts. HDMI 2.1 is interesting, but I fear it will require updating more than the AVR. Without...

And if so, it will most likely be a marketing decision. They would rather we by a new AVR than invest their resources updating what (to them, anyway) is an obsolete product. As I have mentioned...

Could be. I control my system via a Pronto TSU4000. Not so connected to the greater grid as your Harmony I suspect.

Is there some way to change the background color of the 203 to something darker (as with previous Oppo players)? Maybe I've missed some setting for this??

In what way/sense will the 205 improve the HDMI sound? What does it do to improve the digital signal? I'm skeptical that there will be any noticeable improvement on the HDMI/digital side of things.

So, just how is a 10 gbit cable going to be able to pass up to 48 gbit signals? Did they explain that? I'm skeptical. :(
