And, Daddy, why does HE get to live in San Diego?!
LOL. I agree with batpig that he'd be best off treating the systems as two separate systems - one for HT and the other for these kickass parties. I love the style and look (and would love the sound too I am sure) of that fabulous loft.
But then again, batpig arouses considerable envy in me for living in San Diego - one of the loveliest cities I have had the pleasure of visiting in all of the US IMO. It's been a long time since I was there but I am sure it has only gotten better and better over time. Not to mention the climate! (I said not to mention the climate :) )
Now back to our normal programming.... :)
I wonder if this is an issue with the HR34? I have the 4520 with two HR24-500 DVR's, and I never see the issue you describe. HST, I have never been able to see a difference between the DTV scalers and the ones in the Denon.
