Yeah, it's not that I don't appreciate having the remote, but it's not quite as cool as I'd thought.
That BB might have been from Seattle, or maybe Tacoma, if I remember right from the guy's post.
Oh, and one small complaint, and I'm in a minority since I have a weird TV -- I use a 36" 4:3 HDTV in the bedroom. I bought it a few years ago when I wanted to use the set mostly for gaming, and games of the PS2/Xbox/GC era were going to be run via component video at 480p when 95% of games were 4:3. It turns out it's really lame about high-def stuff, and does a raster squeeze when it detects 1080i material (so 1080i is letterboxed but at full resolution within the TV's 4:3 screen).
So, when you set the 360 to run at 1080i and widescreen, everything is fine. I get the raster squeeze and everything runs full rez within a 16:9 letterbox, BUT, if you launch a DVD in the 360, it doesn't upconvert the DVD output to the resolution the box runs at. It spits out ONLY 480p. So, no raster squeeze. Which means all 16:9 material is still squeezed and full screen on the 4:3 screen. There's no way for me to unsqueeze it.
If I want to watch DVDs, I have to go back into the setup menue, select 480p/4:3, and rerun the DVD. It's a 1 in 1000 compatability problem, but it's still annoying. And there's no reason their DVD software player can't upconvert to 720p or 1080i, but for some reason they've elect not to.
