I guess another email to panasonic is in order.
My BD35 resets itself to "Auto" resolution mode as well if I don't have my receiver and TV powered up to the player's output before
powering up the player. So, that's one solution for you - have everything powered up before
powering on the player. If the player can't query it's HDMI connection on power up, it seems to revert back to "Auto" mode.
I have the player's HDMI going to my Onkyo 605 receiver, which is 1080p/24 capable, and then going to my TV via HDMI>DVI cable, and the TV is only 1080i capable. I don't think the player can query the TV for it's capabilities via DVI, so it relies on the receiver's capabilities and decides 1080p is just fine, resulting in a blank screen on my TV. I keep an RCA composite cable connected to be able to go into setup and set the player down to 1080i when I forget to power everything up first.
