My 'handoff' problem basically fixed itself. At the time, switching from HDMI to component solved it one time; then I used a new HDMI cable and the fix held. But going back to the player a day later and the same problem -- when you turned it on, the screen remained black and all the yellow icons/letterings/words -- would not come on. You could hear the 'gears' or whatever 'gurgling' or trying to 'catch' (my words, just describing the noise) but the screen remained blank.
It's weird, because it kept happening despite multiple power-ups and then all of a sudden, voila, fixed. No software upgrades came at the time. Haven't had the problem for about 2 1/2 months since. Haven't been using the 460 much but usually power it up 2-3 times a week at least.
Anyway, it's a great player the 460 and so long as that problem doesn't re-occur when I'm set on watching a Blu-Ray either solo or with guests, I could even live with it if it happens every few months a few times or so.
