-- I decided to get their 3-year protection plan package. As I said before, I did it primarily because is gives me an unconditional 30 day return guarantee and it will take me that long to try out the HDMI performance. In addition, as observed in this thread, some units (very few) have had problems. With any brand new unit, there can be problems which show up later. Normally I would agree with cheezz
, it's a waste of money, in this case, I had my personal reasons, as stated.Ktulu_1
-- I reran the HQV again last night (Component Connections only
! -- My HDMI PJ is Dead!). The only difference was that the 3:2 Detection (Race Car) should have been a "0" at 480p and a borderline "10" (better than a "5" though) on 480i (the same results I got with my RP91 DVD player - same connections). Someone said (& I can't find it) that my total was wrong, true
it was wrong
. The correct total should be = 103, 480p (component) and 108+, 480i (component).

1. I'm insane and cant differentiate fantasy from reality
2. My player is faulty but the ones that work are actually better deinterlacers than about 2 or 3 of the players ever made all for $130.
3. There is something wrong with your results, testing, etc.
4. There is something wrong with my results, testing, etc and this player is a better deinterlacer than about 2 or 3 players ever made and some video processors.
I, too, am curious as to why we get different results (no
to all your items 1 - 4). BTW, the NS75H has a button on the front panel to switch the Progressive mode On/Off. The other difference is that you are using the HDMI
connection vs. my use of the Component Connections
. This difference is likely the major cause (the original HQV Test Results thread gave the early models of the Panny S97 & Oppo 971H about the same results that you got with your NS75H, and they were worse than you got with your S77 tests - I went back and looked at your Post #296).
The only other possibility that I can come up with are the differences in our displays or our NS75Hs. I'm using a Mitsubishi HC3 LCD (960 x 540) projector on a 106" diagonal screen and you're using a JVC 56", D-ILA (1280 x 720) RPTV. As such, your display, although smaller, is much more precise than mine (mine does auto detect a progressive input). Also, I don't know what processing my projector is doing to the signal ("behind my back"
). I have the HC3 "auto" functions turned off - at least the ones I can get to.
When my MT700 was working (1280 x 720, DLP projector, same screen), the results I got with my Panny RP91 DVD player (also Component connections) were similar to yours. After my MT700 failed & I got the HC3 as a (cheap backup), the RP91/HC3/HQV results were about the same. You can imagine how happy I was to see the NS75H improvement. There will be some differences in our scores due to the differences in our subjective perceptions, but not 40-50 points worth.
Its too bad we're about a half a continent away from each other. It would be interesting to see our NS75Hs side by side on the same display.Itsdon
-- Maybe you can moderate this issue, since you don't live too far from me? I gather that you don't have the HQV DVD. Unfortunately, with my schedule, I will be unavailable for about 2 weeks.
