Hi

I have a tosh xa1 linked to the pioneer 435xde

1. When i have 1080i set on the xa1 and play a hd dvd the screen info comes up with 1125i ( I thought that the Screen could only go up to 1080i)

2. When i play serenity or Apollo 13 certain screen or parts of the movie seem to have noise (like small worms 1000 of them) in parts of the colour is this normal of am i being over critical. The Universal title looks very good at the start of the disc and just before the film starts, which makes me think it is the film itself?

I also have a Yamaha DSP-AX1 amplifier connected via optical and when playing a disc the sound switches to DTS when it is playing DD strange?

Many thanks

I can answer number 1 for you. The screen is showing a 1080i image. However, there is additional lines of detail transmitted with the signal which is not displayed on the screen. The Pioneer simply includes these when coming up withi his number. Similarly a 720p picture will be identified as a 750p on Pioneer screens

This is normal - the DD+ soundtrack is being downmixed into DTS and then output via optical/coaxial to your receiver.
