This has occurred in ALL HR20 software releases thus far.HDMI output causes my TV to recognize ALL programming as 16:9, even if it is SD 4:3. When this happens, my TV's "16:9 Enhanced Mode" kicks in, vertically compressing the output (even if 4:3 content) to widescreen format. If the content is already widescreen, it's squished vertically even further than 16:9. You can read about this feature my TV (and I'm sure many other Sonys) has at the bottom of page 7 and on page 59 of the manual, which you can download here, if you like.
Using component cables resolves the issue, and 16:9 Enhanced mode only kicks in for widescreen content, as it's supposed to.
The HR10-250's HDMI output works just fine with this feature, using the same cable with the same TV.
I also have this TV - I noticed before that as the day wore on, the audio sync on HDMI got worse. I am testing it again today, after FA, to see what happens.petergaryr said:I have a Sony KDF-50E2000.
It allows simultaneous connection of both HDMI and component, so I am able to do a fairly good A/B comparison. I have adjusted both inputs to the same settings for PQ and AQ.
Prior to the FA release, I was experiencing an audio synch problem between the TV and HR20 via HDMI. In doing a comparison today, that no longer seems to be an issue.
Other than that, I don't see any significant difference between the HDMI and component connections.
Talk about it via PM or in a new thread... I don't want to clutter this one up.deebeeeff said:But I have a question for you. You say "I have adjusted both inputs to the same settings for PQ and AQ." You can adjust these separately for each input? Or are you saying you just leave the settings the same when you switch between them?
Actually, I tried PM and it didn't seem to want to work. :nono2: SRYEarl Bonovich said:Talk about it via PM or in a new thread... I don't want to clutter this one up.
Since Version 0xE3, I get no output on HDMI at all. Here is the info you requested:Earl Bonovich said:-) Make and Model of TV

-) Firmware version of the TV software
-) If you are using a HDMI switcher of any type (box or amp)... if so, what make/model
Note #4... As of version 0xE3 - The HR20 will attept to reset/resync the HDMI connection with the TV, when you go in and out of standby mode
