Re: HELP with Toshiba HD-DVD A35!!!!
Good to know Amazon is stand-up about quickly replacing equipment bought from them that's causing you problems. I bought a Toshiba HD-A30 and a Samsung BD-P1400 as christmas gifts for friends, and fortunately, they have not had any problems.
One possible problem could be that you need a firmware update for the new player.
I am assuming you hooked up everything as you did before with the A3, and can swap out the A3 with A35 and have sound. You may also want to verify in the A35 settings that you have both audio and video set-up to output on HDMI, and that you have selected an audio track on your HD DVD that your receiver is capable of decoding.
