Summary: I think I found a solution. So far it has worked for me. Instead of wrapping the HDMI with foil, I wrapped the EZWT100 card on the reciever. Cover half of it, just enought to cover it when plugged into the receiver. Also my HDMI cable are free from foil wrapping.
Great product - S-Air was a bit finiky, but only because I went cheap on ONE HDMI cable

Summary: I've had the Sony BDVIS1000 for a few weeks now-- Before purchasing I read the reviews on this system and was a bit hesitant about purchasing based on the S-air connectivity problems, but really wanted the small footprint & sound from this extra small HTIB system.
Summary: Like most here mentioned, linking rear speakers was an challenge until I called my friend Mark, who ordered some better HDMI cables and intensely read the manual. Now we're very, very, very, pleased. Wow!

Summary: First, let me say that I have purposely waited about 4 months before writing a review. I want to give this review a fair report. Having said that, I want to tell you that I am VERY satisfied with this product.

Summary: It took us until last week to pull the trigger on buying a BluRay DVD player. We are so glad we waited for a Theater in a Box piece like this Sony! Set up time was about 45 minutes (only because I had to bury all the wiring) but watching a movie, or broadcast TV, is like being at the movies.
Summary: I purchased the Sony BDV-IS1000 after researching a lot of Blu-Ray HTIB systems from all the manufacturers. I was initially skeptical about the sound quality from such small speakers and concerned about the reliability of wireless rear speakers.
Summary: This has been a great product, it has everything we need all in one unit, it sounds wonderful for such a small unit. The Blueray discs come up much faster then our friends and family's units. Average time for a disc to come up is 15-30 seconds.
