Ugh, bluray :(

That's right folks, the service people at best buy fail miserably. With in days of finally getting my bluray player back, the picture started dropping yet again. Seriously, I think all these people did was update the firmware, scratch their heads (perhaps other area's of their body) and say "Hmmm, well that must have fixed it"! God I'm annoyed. When I call them today I'm going to ask about just getting a replacement model. At the rate we're going I'll never be able to watch bluray movies.

On a more positive note, I did get my Onkyo TX-SR605 in, the receiver is amazing. I'm still in the process of getting it all set up. One disappointment, it seems like my HD DVD player only streams stereo PCM over HDMI (model HD-A2). Or at least that is what I'm experiencing right now, I'm pretty sure it's just the HD DVD player because I tested with the (frustratingly broken) DB-P1400 Blu player and I got surround to work (excellently) using DTS-MA, TrueHD and 5.1 PCM.

Oh well, hooray for consumer electronics? :P

I had a very bad experience with Best Buy when my tv broke...I had bought a serv. agreement and when the tv was found to cost more to repair then replace I was finally given a new tv...It only took about 3 months and 60 calls...
