I love it. Ever since I started using it, never use front row. I use the xTV skin, which makes it look just like front row. And I built my own folder/menu system inside the movies directory in Plex, a ...

I have also seen this. Not sure where it happened, but it used to work fine. I bet the perian team knows about it and will update soon.

Sounds like you have your de-interlace set too high. Put it at a lower level. Everything else seems correct.

You should totally get 2 channel PCM Digital input to the Yamaha regardless. Not sure why the receiver is not seeing that??? ( NOT analog )

Agreed. I believe you should have a minimum of 1 GB of RAM for 1080i. (or HD for that matter)
