The problems are two fold;
First trying to use the mutichannel analog outs but seems to default to downmixes to two channel
Secondly when I switched the 05 to an elite151 1080p plasma via hdmi and analogues out I cannot get any video signal thru the hdmi connection, and only 1080i with components, like the initial analogue setup, which is greyed out and unusable. not sure if problem is with plasma or 05
It sounds like the Output Priority for audio and video may not be set correctly.
For audio via the multichannel outputs, Output Priority must be set to Analog and multichannel outputs selected.
For video, it may be that like the 51, the player will not output video via HDMI and Component at the same time. If so, then when using Component the Output Priority must be set as such, and for HDMI, it must be set to HDMI.
The manual for the 51 does suggest that the video output can be changed on the remote via the "Video Select" button. So you might give that a try.
It also important to note that using the component outputs limits you to 480i/p for DVD and 1080i for Blu ray. 1080p is only available via HDMI.
If it's a problem with the firmware update, you may try unplugging the player for awhile or do a factory reset (see post #7 or link in my signature). This has solved issues for other users before.
Hope something in here helps.
PS - The Elite 151/05 combo is a killer combination!
