I also have a new Sony(inexpensive) DVD changer and that upconverts and that looks good. I agree with you on HD, jaw dropping!!!
FYI to ALL: March 2006 builds from what I have seen don't have any issues with Green Blob and or Purple haze on blacks. I have seen 3 sets now and none of them show it.
I won't say all DVD's, especially the Pixar movies, but so far "Master & Commander", "Lord of the Rings", "Harry Potter", and a few others that have lots of dark scenes. The blacks are fine, there is even detail, that's not the problem, i think it's because Sony over softens the picture so 480i darker movies suffer. I will say this, these same movies on HD cable probably do and will look awesome on the SXRD. I am not alone in this as even the CC employees i know say the same thing. At BB the other day i was watching the promo for "Ice Age 2" and it was WOW. So go figure.
