post #375 of 4322
paul do you see y/c delay? and what was the macro blocking from?
post #376 of 4322
Thread Starter 
Yes, I do and it is noted in the first post. The macroblocking source is also located in the first post.
post #377 of 4322
ok thanks sorry i missed it

Actually Kevin, the macroblocking source may not have been present when asked. I've been editing furiously!

i have the 3910 and wanted to see if i could see it. they both use the same chip and was wondering how denon may have got rid of it.

I don't know. Firmware update?
post #381 of 4322

When I checked for pixel cropping on my HT1000 projector (I get 0 all the way for the D1 and my HTPC), I get 0 pixels cut off on the top and bottom, but 3 pixels on the left and 3 on the right.

The one pattern that this player does poorly on is Avia's moving Zone plates. In my setup, many of the lines in the boxes below the circle get a lot of noise.

My S97 setup (for 720p): Contrast 0, Brightness +1, Gamma +5 (to taste), Saturation/Color -1, Sharpness +2. I do not see a difference with the different noise reduction settings so I left them at 0. I get 0% red push and green and blue are at 0%. Tint is right on. When I check the color space, I only see RGB for 720p - no other option is shown.

I do not use 1080i because my NEC HT1000 projector forces a 5% overscan on 1080i DVI inputs, but accepts 720p at 0% overscan. Go figure!

Bytehoven - I will PM you with my HT1000 settings later tonight. I have not fired it up yet Waiting for darkness...

You can see it with the the 3910?

I can make the blocks go away as well on the S97S. I can reduce the brightness a bit or introduce a bit of black crush. It looks like the majority of this "activity" is between 0-10 IRE.

yes i can but brightness needs to be almost all the way up.i also did the firmware update to correct gamma and pic crop.

Thanks for the report Rich!

The Avia moving zone plate doesn't fare too well and it is noted.

Paul,

In my setup, the Avia Special tests menu was fine - I checked it many times last night at 720p. Just for kicks, I'll check it at 1080i to see if the same thing happens.

Rich,

Strange. I've accessed it (and other deep Avia menus) several times with this same result. Perhaps the disc has been slightly revised/remastered?
post #388 of 4322
Thanks Paul for the pictures of spam!! (lol j/k!)

Just curious, with the AVIA Y/C delay pic there. How can you tell about the delay because when I look at it, I cannot pin point it out.

It's my first time seeing that screen too so a bit of legend can be helpful!

So does this unit suprass the previous Panny Faroudja's?
post #389 of 4322
Sango look at the number zero the red is flush at zero the others are not.

Just a reminder that these pictures aren't real scientific -- mostly for fun and discussion. I think it has been noted that the Avia Y/C is just a very rough guide. I would wait for a "Secrets" test before making any purchase decision based on Y/C results.
