Claudio- Tell your friend that there is an upgrade discount to go to the 505 from the 500. The page turning is improved. The 700 adds the audio ability as well. I do not know of differences in the interface, I have no complaints with mine.
I believe rb is refering to 5.1 analog outputs, which are not included on the new base model Toshiba. If you want to experience the high-rez audio available on the new formats, you will need either 5.1 analog or an hdmi capable reciever. The Toslink and/or digital coax connections do not have the bandwidth to support them, only the legacy formats.[addsig]
Procure, HD-DVD on a Sony fan site? Wow. You may want to reconsider your choice after seeing the dismal showing HD-DVD had at the CES this week. Consider Blu-Ray, a lot more future growth room and quite a bit more studio support. Maxx is right. Connect the player to your reciever with analog 5.1 cables to take advantage of the player's decoding capabilities. Connect the hdmi cable to the tv to use for video only. Enjoy![addsig]

The letterbox DVD's, you know, the ones that have black bars on the both sides and the top and bottom. Those are the ones I hate. Not the Anamorphic DVD's, they only have the black bars on the top and bottom. Those are the ones that are fine. Lyle The highlighted section is where you lost me. I fully comprehend what letterbox, anamorphic presentati ..

I do, however dispise the letterbox DVD's. I understand, fit the picture to the screen, but black bars on top and bottom, that's rediculous. Lyle Um.. did that make any sense? You are saying exact opposite things in the same statement.[addsig]

This thread makes me sad. I would figure anyone who was enough of an enthusiast to purchase a 1st gen Blu-Ray player would appreciate, no, EXPECT original aspect ratio presentations. If you're watching in a slightly darkened room with a properly calibrated display, you shouldn't even be able to notice the bars. PRESERVE THE DIRECTOR'S INTENT!!!! O.A.R. ONLY!! [addsig]
This is possibly the funniest thread I've ever read in any forum on the web. PS.- Undercoversonyhater, I'm amazed at your ability to hate things you've never owned. Your powers of perception must be far better than most people's. Enjoy your Zenith tv and GPX dvd player! [addsig]
