you said it! The manual does no justice for the power and complexity of the DVD-3930CI, this is one heck of a machine!
I'm just getting versed with how to play various disc's (mostly CD's, SACD's, DVD-A's so far).
Although I did some testing with a DVD-movie ("the Break-Up") and it seemed to play just fine (beautiful color). Have'nt figured out how to play with video resolution- ie. set for progressive.
I have my DVD-3930CI connected to a Yamaha RV-1600: 2-channel audio OUT's going to Yamaha analog "CD" INP's, digital coax going to Yamaha "DVD" digital coax INP, 5.1 audio OUT's going to Yamaha "Multi-Channel" INP's, and component-video OUT to Yamaha "DVD" component-video INP.
I noticed while playing a (redbook) CD, via-2ch audio OUT, I switch the Yamaha to "CD" input (2-chan analog), and it plays very nice. However, if I switch the Yamaha to "DVD" input it also plays thru this channel- I guess the audio is coming thru the digital coax at this point? (it must be because it's playing with DolbyDigital enabled on Yamaha). hmmmm.........
