I don't think it's the cables. I was using the DVI-HDMI 6-ft cable that came with the oppo, and am now using a 15-ft monoprice DVI-HDMI cable, and I see it with either cable.
Aside from that, I used the same 15-ft cable from my PC to the projector this afternoon, and no artifacts. Speaking of the PC - HOLY CRAP! I was just going to look at windows to verify that everything was clean and nothing was screwy with the cable and the projector, but I ended up playing around 4 hours of half life 2. It was gorgeous. No ghosts, no weirdness, just 7 feet of 720p post-apacolyptic goodness. This is our office computer, so now of course I have to build a HTPC.
So... video from the PC at 60hz to the projector is way smoother than the dvds with 3:2 pulldown. I almost regret the oppo, since the bravo D1 can do 48hz @ 720p for much less. Although I find watching animated films much smoother than filmed films.
This is also an argument for the HTPC, as I believe (from these forums) that the HD70's colorwheel can spin down and the proj can output at 48hz.
But back to a question that was kinda left hanging - is EE encoded onto the DVDs when they are mastered? Should I expect this from most DVDs? Moving forward, should I expect this from HD-DVD and/or blueray if/when I go down that road?
Thanks again and happy 2007,
