Haha, I was a little miffed that my state of the art Yamaha HTR-5990 was finally outdated a bit, but I'll live

coderguy, I read all about the textures and how great they look, and was going to apply them, until I read NUMEROUS horror stories on both the Nexus *and* official Beth forums, about they cause CTD's up the wazoo. They cause the game to be very unstable and crash prone. This was about a month or so ago on patch 1.3 so I don't know about today...have they fixed the Hi-res tex patch so that it's more stable?

If the receiver is introducing lag, check to see if you can bypass or disable any of the video processing capabilities of it. The problem with bypassing the receiver is that you lose the lossless sound capabilities coming from the PS3 by having to use optical.
I don't think I'll be getting any lag going through my receiver, because I didn't get any when using my 8720 at all. I was just curious if by passing it normally yields any benefits at all.
I have come with a workaround solution for the receiver/1080p dilemma. I am now running a DVI-HDMI cable straight from my ATI 5870 card to my pj, while simultaneously running an HDMI cable connection from the 5870 to my receiver *just* for the audio! It actually works beautifully! I get full 1080p resolution from the ATI DVI connection to the pj, and lossless HD audio from my HDMI connection to the receiver. Saves me having to rush out and buy a receiver right away
Gotta love this ATI 5870 card!
