The old Catch 22 trick.
Don't feel bad, auskck, I'm in the same boat
Actually I'm using netflix now and stopping the leak, but only 1 at a time since I can't.. well.. back up stuff I can't watch right away
I was a little bummed to realize that even though it has BD live I can't stream netflix through it. But hey, I can watch that on the little 19" LCD I 've got coming for the PC.
Speaking of which, I'm getting an entry level reciever.. Onkyo TX-304. It doesn't have HDMI, just optical inputs, 5.1 capable. With the HDMI going from the BD to the Panny pz85u will the output via optical to the reciever be the full HD sound? I hadn't thought of it when I ordered it (and hey, it was FREE.. thank you V@nns!) and I'm far from a audiophile anyway. Should I connect the BD straight to it via optical or can I just use the audio out on the TV for everything?
Edited: As for who paid what.. WHO CARES? If you love your TV, and most everyone here does, then they made the right purchase. I LOVE my TV.
