I'm not sure whether I'm upconverting to 1080i with standard DVD's or whether I'm getting 1080i with Blu Ray Discs either. I'm not inclined to spend another $4K to buy a new HDMI Receiver and TV, but I want to maximize my experience with my existing equipment. Should I hook up the audio via analog instead of TosLink? Any ideas.
Toslink will only give you lossy Dolby Digital & DTS 5.1.
I think you cam get lossless through the analog if it can be processed by the BD55 which it should be able to do.
