I had mine on PCM but then I bought a Pioneer Elite VSX-82TXs and have been toying with "auto"

Seems to let the reciever decode my SD-DVD's and the player unzips the PCM for my HD-DVD's.

Just wondering if anyone else is trying this setup or if there are any problems I'm going to run into using it this way.

Thanks

Yeah right now it's pulling double duty.

However today I might pickup a clearance pio elite DVD player for SD duty.

We have an Oppo 971 for regular DVDs


Our Toshiba A2 is for playback of HD DVDs only. .

I'm using HDMI for both sound and video. It's currently in the "auto" set up.

If we aren't playing normal DVDs,is it better to have the HDMI set up to PCM?

What about the toslink (SPDIF)? Should that be set to "bitstream" even if it's not connected?

Thanks

As good as the HD-A2 is at up converting I'd like to get a high quality SD-DVD player to go alonng.

the DVD46 looks attractive to me and it matches my pio elite reciever.

Well this morening I bought a Pioneer Elite DV-46AV.

So far it's got an awesome picture and does Divx. I might keep it around for SD-DVD playback.

Mostly depends on the WAF when she gets home since she doesn't know I was buying it.

Got it for under $300

True, it might be a bug, but most think setting SPDIF Out to "Bitstream" sounds much better. Still don't know why this happens, but it definitely sounds better.
