Here are the problems I'm having so far:
1. PS3 XMB not syncing (no clicks, unless you keep zipping through it)
2. BTB/WTW not passing
3. It's lousy at choosing which CODEC to use - gets stuck in Logic 7
4. Standard Definition Upconversion; it degrades the quality of SD programming, including our WII (hooked up w/component cables).
5. It won't pass 1080p/24 from my ps3. The option is greyed out in the menu, and the TV confirms I'm getting 60 fps, even when 24 is forced on the PS3.
6. You cannot defeat the video processing. The "OFF" function pretends it's off, but it isn't.
