I've had one update, which I believe makes my system A0803. I looked on the website for A0805, but did see any mention of it. Kindly tell me how to get the A0805 version. Thanks.

I've been wondering for some time why my SD pictures looked dull and lifeless--especially b/w images. I wondered if the problem was low video input level and maybe there wasn't enough gain in the...

Re 0.8B3 software and the "pad"

The new software certainly has solved many of the old problems, however the new software has nothing to do with the 6dB pad and the problem it addressed. I would...

I looked at the test recording again just to make sure:

In the SP mode, I can clearly read 500 lines from the chart. The 6.75MHz reference is also clearly readable. Now, I only use the...

CKNA

What Philips model do you have? What software version? How do you feed it, i.e., S-Video or component?

RJM321

My comments were never intended to make you or anyone else feel bad because they bought something other than a 985 (not 895). I was, however, surprised the 985 was not on the short list.

Gil:

What's important is what gets recorded. If you limit what goes in, then it's all over at that point. S-Video input is a limiting aperture as compared to component. You really can see the...

vferrari

Yes, a good 10-bit ADC produces a very acceptable result. I've worked with SDI for years in both TV and home theater. I find the component output of a typical DVD player is now quite...

mrwilson

To Create S-Video you need an encoder, to get things back to digital component (which is what the DVDR needs) you need a decoder. An encoder-decoder pair is a CODEC. There are digital...

mrwilson

If your comment has to do with component input on the 985, there would be no reason to change YPrPb video to S-video before recording: This would require a 3-channel A/D converter...

I think the best player by far is the Philips DVDR-985. It has extremely good video quality (using component input) and now offers 1,2,2.5,3,4,6 hour recording modes. Media is DVD+R/RW. I have few...

LJG

Anything is possible, however the pad is just a couple of resistors. I would say it is very unlikely that a pad would fail unless hit by lightning.

It seems to me the best pix quality can only be obtained with DVDR's that offer component or RGB inputs. Is the Philips DVDR-985 the only model with the feature?
