How do I change the output on the A35? Do I have to turn it off and on each time? Because one thing about A35 is the load time that bugs me a bit...my BDP1400 ain't that much better either...actually, xbox HD DVD and PS3 superior here I think.
I haven't really experimented with turning DDA off and putting in a SD DVD to see if the 35 would still bitstream Dolby Digital or not. I do know, as I stated in the previous post, that if you don't turn it on, DD+, THD and DTS HD (MA???) won't bitstream. I'll have to check it out.
As far as feeding digital audio and HDMI at the same time, I haven't tried that, either.
No experimentation plus limited access to my favorite board for two days. 'She who must be obeyed' took today and tomorrow off. She totally supports and enjoys my hobby (obsession) with me. However, she hates it when I whip out an SPL meter and start tweaking stuff. I always get the "For once, can't we just sit down and enjoy a movie?"
You know, smarter words were probably never uttered. But we can't stop tweaking, can we guys? Its genetic...Will
