Wow, great tip about the plastic. That would explain why both my Samsung DVD player and HDTV receiver with the mirrored bezels have such crappy IR performance. What a stupid design choice. I wonder if they ever tested the thing.

In case you weren't aware, the component output isn't using the Faroudja chip. That would explain it's different performance and why it doesn't have EE.

It's obvious Samsung made some stupid choices. But at least it's flaws are predictable and can be compensated for in a reliable manner. The lockups of the D1 wouldn't be acceptable to me. But I won't feel any sorrow to dump the Samsung when someone comes out with a well designed DVI player.

After having read many comments on V1 and HD931, I pulled trugger on HD931. Why? because HD931 has better looking case and because, I can deal with EE and pluge issues but not lock-ups.

What you meant by 20 - 20kHz would be frequency response. In a CD analogy, dynamic range would be more like 96dB for the Bravo D1 and 90dB for the Samsung HD931.

The most efficient path is seldom a straight line.

Question: What pattern on digital video essentials would I use to check for white crush? I know that the pluge wont display the blacker than black bar,but i'm curious about the white being clipped. Thanks

Here (chapter title):

On DVE, here's where you'll find B and C test signals:

Brightness (nearly all display types) = c12 t2

Contrast (for plasma, LCD, DLP) = c13 t2

For Brightness, you should see 3 vertical bars to the left and 3 vertical bars to the right of the center white rectangle. The narrative in an earlier section explains what to do if you only see 2 bars on each side.

Contrast is set by using the small white boxes. There's a box within a box and you should adjust down (if I remember correctly) from only being able to see just one box until there is distinctly a box within a box. The same type of box setup is available on the Snell&Wilcox test pattern (c16 t2).

The most efficient path is seldom a straight line.
