I bought a XA1 a couple of months ago and have been enjoying it including using it as a CD player. I think hunting down used-new HD movies is part of the fun! I upgraded the firmware to 4.0 as it would not originally play HD discs and it has been working fine,quite a solid machine. The problem I have is that I have an older Mitsubishi CRT 1080i 55" tv with only component in for the HD. I don't know if anything changed with firmware updates but according to the manual I cannot run 1080 component through my Onkyo 805 and HDMI audio at the same time. I have been getting DD+ through optical, changed to DTS 1.5 on my receiver and it sounds fine but it would be nice to get Dolby True HD. I guess I can run 6 analog cables to get it but would prefer to use 1 HDMI cable since my Onkyo will accept HDMI. My Panasonic BD-35 does allow me to use component and HDMI separately. Is it because this was a first generation player and do any of the Toshiba HD players allow you to do this? Thanks, Rod.
