Joan Sutherland I would consider a coloratura soprano. Kate Bush? Mmm...maybe not so much.
A little off-topic, guys, but if you switch to component video, does that mean you can't watch in 1080p? I thought component video was only capable of 1080i. Or am I mistaken? HDMI works fine for me, but the only thing I use it for is a video connection from my Blu-ray player to my monitor. I use optical for the audio into my receiver, since mine is older and doesn't have HDMI capability. I've been mercifully free of problems. Some of what you guys are going through sounds like a serious headache. I guess there are some advantages to not keeping up with the times.
