Man, what a disappointment!! I received my brand-new, shiny silver Bravo D2 DVD player the other day and was overjoyed at the prospect of using it with my Sharp Z10000 projector. Prior to this, I had a Bravo D1 connected to my Sharp PJ using DVI output---worked flawlessly ever since I got it. The only thing I didn't like about the Sharp with this setup (DVI) is that it didn't let you change contrast or brightness. So, ever since I heard about the new Bravo D2 having these features to change brightness and contrast using DVI, I knew I had to have it. Well......I got it all set up and......WTF!!.....the panel controls don't work! .....the remote works only intermittently........DVI output doesn't work!........I've read the manual from cover to cover and tried numerous times to reset the machine by unplugging/plugging, but to no avail. I've tried contacting V, Inc. with e-mails and phone calls but no response. Except for the shiny silver casing, the quality doesn't seem any better than the D1..........as a matter of fact, right now, it's crap and I'm putting my D1 back where it belongs. Denon , Sony, and others can do a much better job than this......where are you guys?!
