I have a Denon AVR-4802R and SharpVison XV-Z12000.
I've finally decided to get an A30, which I will connect directly
to the 12000 with a 10meter LINDY DVI cable. The audio will
go to the Denon via optical connection.

Will there be any problems with the audio decode on the Denon? I assume
I will be able to get DTS and THX but not the newer HD audio encodes?

Also, should I anticipate any problems driving this length of DVI cable
with the A30?

Sorry I'm so ignorant with all of this.....

(Sorry again, meant to put this in the A30 thread....)

I will have a similar set up. Denon 4802, Sharp12000 markii,HD DVD or Blue ray player still to be decided probably Toshiba a-3 . I will send the video directly from the toshiba to the projector via hdmi\\dvi connection, and the audio to the denon via an optical, or coax cable depending on the output of the dvd player. there are no hdmi inputs on the back of the Denon, so that option is out.
Ther are not 7.1 rca outs on the back of the toshiba so that option is out. In other words your setup should work. Let me know if it does or does not work, especially with 7.1 material such as gladiator which I believe is 7.1, or whatever other material you have.

Gladiator is actually 6.1 and by setting your Toshiba to bitstream that will give you the best possible sound with your setup.

I just found a mis-priced A30 at CircuitCity for $249 and bought it
so I will let you know how things come out over the next couple of
days.
Wish I had been able to use all of those BB Gift Cards I got for Xmas
but I just couldn't pay the $399 they want, now, for the A30!

First report: A30 set-up OK with current 10m DVI cable, DVI-HDMI
converter, and optical feed to the Denon. Everything started up fine
and set audio to bitstream.

Tried a Tomb Raider HD-DVD which I've had for a year (and never able
to use) and it looked good, although hard to do a side-by-side and the
beginning of the movie is heavy on the browns/beige and indoor shots
so got bored and put in Gladiator. For some reason I have 2 Gladiator
SD DVD's so loaded one in the old drive (using Component Video) and
the other in the A30 using the DVI. Not really an apples-to-apples
comparison but much clearer and more vibrant colors. Sound (DTS)
appeared to be decoding correctly with full surround.

Is the dogs face painted blue in the opening shots or is my PJ that far
out of calibration?

I need to do a lot of work getting everything set-up and calibrated and
I plan on having an ISF calibration done at some point.

If anyone can help with this question: my PJ bulb has 1100hrs on it after
3+ years. I realize the hour-life is alot longer but do they "age" over time
independent of use? If I'm going to spend several hundered dollars on an
ISF calibration, should I get a new bulb, or would this be a waste of money?

Thanks.
