OK - I take that last bit back - I've adjusted the brightness, contrast and played with the filters, and I now have a picture that beats what I was getting with the F 1010. I'm using a DVD that I've considered a reference for light, dark, sharpness and shadows - Flight of the Phoenix, in PAL.

Very satisfied by the picture now - better than I had before - I'm wondering whether I'll be able to get much out of Sky, but I'll give it a shot next.

Gentlemen,

Would it be a good idea to keep our postings that relate to users' findings and evaluations on the Vantage VHD to the new thread that rdjam started, now that the VHD has arrived? Avoids having a thread that is so long that nobody can be bothered to search through - like the DVDO VP30 one. ;)

See My VANTAGE HD has ARRIVED!!!!!

I've now finished setting up the DVD player with DVE and AVIA and I'm very impressed.

The VHD is capable of driving more saturation and contrast to the 2K than I was able to get cleanly out of the F1010.

I am driving the VHD at 720p from the Denon, as I still seem to get the best sharpnes that way.

I've noticed that once I had set up all my contrast, brightness and color settings, that if I switched video modes on the Denon on-the-fly during play (ie back to 576p) the VHD, upon rescanning, appeared to switch back to default settings. If I opened the settings menu, the settings still showed the correct values but if I moved any of the settins by one point, the video would suddenly correct itself to the settings shown.

Interesting little bug, but relatively easy to get used to.

Am now going to run DVE 1080i on the DVHS...

Whoops - sorry! I must have answered a question and stayed in this thread when I continued.

How do I move some of these back to the VAntage arrived thread?

Don't know rdjam, but I'd suggest just copying them for now - maybe cut and paste your last posts into one and make just the one new entry. You could then delete the ones in this thread - as long as you do it within 24 hours - I think.

But, you're doing a great job - keep up the good work :)

Phil.
