On the BDP-80, when simultaneously using HDMI as the primary output for both audio and video...
1. Is the S-video output active?
1a. If so, is the video output letterboxed or horizontally squeezed?
Would you believe I never tested s-video? I couldn't find my cable.
2. Is the audio output through the FL and FR analog outputs automatically downmixed from the multichannel?
There is a 2-channel downmix setting in the Setup. I use this for headphones; just a Y-cable, nothing fancy.
3. Is there any effect at all on the HDMI AV quality when using these analog outputs?
I'm sure there is no difference when Primary Output is set to HDMI. I would want to test s-video first to answer the other questions, and to see if there is a difference when Primary Output is set to Component.
