Hey again. For those of you who've read my previous posts on how I was having "motion problems" with this set, I think I have finally(?) figured out why.
Seems there is a little thing called "HDCP" (definition below from another site)
" HDCP...It is an ageement between the movie studios and the dvd makers that trys to protect the digital output of a dvd player and the digital input of a display unit from the ability to scale any copy protected dvd to a resolution higher than 720 x 480p which is standard. Since the digital path of DVI and the soon to be popular HDMI is so pure if you were able to scale it to 1080i or p or 720p you would basically be watching the quality of the Movie Studio's negative, (which is as pure as it comes). If you were able to make a copy of it at that resolution (its basically for crooks that want to distribute master copies on a large scale. "
So store bought discs will not "upconvert" properly (via my Sony DVP-NS75H) and thus this annoying motion distortion.
I know cause I played the same movie..1 store bought, one not and voiola, the non store bought played just great, whereas the store bought one had the motion BS.
Eventhough on both it says its playing at 1080i, the store bought DVD played worse.
BS to say the least. Amazing the Studios won't even let you make your store bought copy of your movie look better. Talk about big brother.
Any input on this topic would be appreciated. I heard there were codes to disable the HDCP in your DVD player??
