If you don't mind, I for one would like to see your reply to the question here as well. As someone who is in the industry, your comments might help people who are interested in the reason or reasons why some manufacturers encrypt the digital output understand this hot and often debated topic.
In case some of you don't realize how threads work at AVS Forum, as a thread gets a reply, it moves up the page. As long as there are replies to a thread at a reasonable rate, it stays on page 1. As the reply rate dwindles, so does the thread's position on a page, until it drops off to the next page. It doesn't take a genius (then again, maybe it does) to realize that these questions, answers and discussions, while not directly related to the main topic, keep the thread in plain view for all to see on page 1. Isn't that how most of you were made aware of this thread, by it existing on page 1?
I would bet that the extra discussions which have taken place in this thread have benefited and/or educated the many people that participate in it, as well as those who just monitor the thread for information, in one way or another. Isn't that part of the reason that this forum exists in the first place? Is it not to share information and educate those seeking to learn more about this hobby?
I realize that most of you want answers to the questions about the DVD5900. That said, a few of the topics discussed in this thread are not directly related to this product. However, these OT discussions are directly related to DVD playback in general, which the DVD5900 is a part of by definition.
As for resolution to the problem that the DVD5900 seems to have, the answer will come from Denon. I would expect that Kris Deering, since he has corresponded with Denon on this issue, will let everyone know Denon's response in this thread. Until that time, what is the harm in letting participants in this thread share information with other members? Trust me, when the news comes, it will be posted. It's not like you will miss it due to the fact that Kris couldn't get through because the thread was busy!
The most efficient path is seldom a straight line.
