Still too much anterior though, would you say?

A little, but it doesn't really effect his pivot or his pattern, so not a big deal.

The big difference, though he arches his back a bit, he's now not looking down at the ball with his chin up. I think that has helped him more. I also think he's is very athletic, so he can get away with his posture. He'll probably have to change it as he gets holder and less athletic, but as for right now, he's fine.

To be clear, nothing has changed from what I've said in this thread.  From the first post in this thread, "I'm feeling posterior tilt, in reality I am closer to anterior but adding posterior."  Dana just threw in that reference with the belt, it's NOT a feel.  It could be if you setup with the hips level to the ground at A1.  I take time in the video to highlight that even though my hips are pointing kinda at the ball that I'm not sticking out my tailbone, no arch in my lower back.

Great answer Mike and great video. This thread I think is one of the most important subjects on the swing there is. Posture is the one thing that all of us should be able to do the same way every time. If we can learn to do it correctly as you describe so well, it has huge benefits with the hip and shoulder slants. Great stuff!
