Tom, I guess this question really is for you. I have a H79 that I'm trying to get to work with the digital output from a XA2. My question to Toshiba and its response (it didn't work) follow. Have you been able to get any of your Hxx Optomas to sync with a Toshiba HD player since the 2.5 formware upgrade? If so, how? Thanks very much. Cordially,
"Thanks for writing!
"I apologize for the inconvenience.

I have one of your HD-DVD players, the HD-XA2. I also have an Optoma H79 DLP projector, which has a DVI digital input. Although I've had the same colorspace and Black crush problems experienced by many on the AVS boards, I at least could get the Toshiba to handshake with the Optoma if I used a HDMI-DVI cable direct from the player to the projector. Now, after "upgrading" to firmware 2.5, I can't get any picture from the Toshiba to the projector using the digital inputs. If I use component, I can get them to work, but I've sacrificed the upconverting abilities of the Toshiba that I paid extra to get. Help. please. I'm MUCH more inclined to sell (and swear off ever buying another) the Toshiba player than I am to sell the projector, which cost several thousand dollars more. Thanks."
