I have a Yamaha 667, works fine with a GT430 including all the HD audio formats, there do seem to be some subtle differences between direct connections and via the amp. My previous surround amp seemed to pass everything through as is, except that it never liked 1080p50 which is not very useful when you live in the UK! Recently HDMI packed up completely, just out of warranty.

I do only use 1920x1080 but I can try some wacky resolutions for you if you like?

BTW the Yamaha was a replacement for a faulty Onkyo 606, wow what an upgrade, I suddenly like watching movies again :-)
