Most (all?) digital electronics I'm familiar with use DC fans these days. I'd be surprised if JVC used 120VAC fans for the cooling here. They obviously need DC power for the electronics, so might as...

My 4810 manual says the same thing, but I could swear I played with it once and it could do top/bottom masking without any side masking.

My 4810 (older model) can do masking but only a small amount, not enough for this. The masking is only electronic image manipulation, the same as if that part of the image was black.

When you're talking about reaction times measured in fractions of a second, 0.1s is a substantial amount of time, and much worse than many of the competing PJs. There's nothing absurd about pointing...

Tom, I don't understand this. "Unhandled exception" refers to a bug in a program running on the PC. Is atabea running some Lumagen software on his PC that is causing this?

That's what AnyDVD does to defeat the playlist obfuscation. Beyond that, it's not so simple. What if the disc menu offers a choice between theatrical and extended cut?
