Yes, that was my observation. However, when I did the upgrade, I re-initialized the player,so it is conceivable that this changed a setting somewhere that I didn't track. It is possible that I had previously set the SPDIF output to 'Bitstream', though I have no recollection of having done so. Since we didn't yet understand the interaction of the settings outside of BM-specific items, I had no reason to track them pre- and post-upgrade. For that matter, it is possible that Toshiba changed the default SPDIF output setting - I can't tell, now that the upgrade has been done on my XA2.
I haven't upgraded to 1.6 yet because my room is not quite finished, so if I can help out, let me know.
Well, the obvious thing would be to try to get your player to work properly under 1.5, then duplicate the settings after the upgrade and see if anything changes.
it might also be nice to see the results of an 'Initialize' command both before and after the upgrade, to see if there has been a change in the default settings.
