1. CRT + HDMI - You can do this with some receivers as long as it's not HDCP-protected content! 2. OMAP - Yes, totally agree. 3. The 30fps issue is a bug that is about ready to be fixed by a hack. Depending on what revision of the Evo you have, it may already be fixed. I believe rev 003 has it fixed but 002 is still in the works. So what you hear is wrong about the 30fps issue - they get it up to around 60fps once the hack is applied.
