Seriously, tho... the 8000 doesn't have DVI active, no SD & HD at the same time (except the copy to VCR function), firewire and USB are also inactive. The 8300 has active DVI (or is it HDMI?), simultanious SD & HD, and I think the Firewire is active as well.
Does yours have a problem with Dolby Digital on playbacks or timeshifting?
Ha! So true... The 8300 pimps an HDMI port. I could not successfully connect my miniDV Sony camcorder to its firewire port. *grumbles*. Also I hear that when using HDMI, it DISABLES or SEVERELY DISRUPTS (still grumbling...) the other digital audio outputs. Seriously... How many people are using HDMI to carry digital audio? While we're there, how many people use it at all? SA should know better to pull a stunt like this. I do not have first hand experience with the digital audio problem, because mine is connected in a bedroom, nowhere near a receiver. Okie dokie...
