After a long time using the BH-200 as my primary player, I've upgraded to an Oppo BDP-93. Given a paucity of HDMI ports on my receiver, I am now sending the video signal from the BH200 directly to my 1080p TV via component, and sending audio to my receiver via s/pdif and DTS re-encode.
My question is, how much am I actually losing? I don't think I'm losing much on audio, since I use the BH200 almost entirely for HD-DVD these days - and few of these have lossless audio tracks. But is the 1080i signal being sent over component the same 1920x1080 signal done over HDMI, only interlaced, or is it actually 1366x768? I watched the HD-DVD of Planet Earth recently on this configuration, and I was really impressed - it looked just as sharp.
Hi. My LG BH200 won't play HD-DVDs anymore. - When I want to play a HD-DVD both lights "Blu-ray" and "HD-DVD" are flashing as usual and after a few seconds it recognizes that it's a HD-DVD, so far so good.
But then nothing else happens, the display shows "Reading" and the screen is the standard LG Super Blu one and that's about it. I can't do anything else except turning the player off and hit "Eject" when I start it again so it won't hang itself up again.
Blu-ray & DVD play back (Regions A, B) work perfectly fine. (Except when I want t change the BD region code, it works and is saved but the player hangs itself up and I can't close the tray again so I have to turn it off.)
What do you think? Is the player going to say bye bye in a few weeks?
