Last night, I put in a couple of Superbit DVDs on my 1910. I cannot tell if the 1910 is a bad player or not, in terms of macroblocking, honestly! Here's why:
Last night I also was watching Basic Instinct, on TV (satellite), and it was SD feed. I have an HD2+ DLP 52 inch, and the scene where Sharon Stone is in bed talking with Mike Douglas, there is a closeup on her face, and she moves around a bit when she was talking, and it was a side profile of her face. You could VERY easily see what I now understand as macroblocking: There literally where squares dancing around as the camera moved slightly (and so did the actor), with her face obviously being tan/white/pinkish/redish, so the square danced around near each other, where of those colors.
I never once saw this on my 1910. What I *do* see in the 1910 however, is this "hazy" effect on all the discs, where things in both the background AND the foreground aren't razor-sharp. Thing is, when I pause and look closely at an actor's face or an object, for example, it DOES look razor-sharp and very detailed and clear.
But I certainly didn't see MB going on like I did watching Basic Instinct on SD channel. I also saw that MB phenomenom while playing XBOX at an intro sequence (closeup panning camera on a red sports car).
So in closing, I would like to say that no matter how much info I get from this forum, I just cannot tell if the 1910 is bad or not, unless I get another player and compare the PQ. Sux that I got it from an online retailer, and it's too much a PITA to send it back for a refund. I guess I'll just deal with it and sell it privately for a small loss, should a new DVD player prove superior. I guess I'll try the 2910.
