New LG-DN191H - Page 2

post #31 of 260
Which is why I'm gonna stick with my 418 and 511 for now-even though I just got an hdtv with an hdmi input I still like the smoother look of 1080I in componet.

Hi, I am interested to know if this player can zoom the 2.35:1 DVD to get rid of most of the top & bottom black bars (smaller than a x2 zoom which is too much in general) and still provide good PQ quality?
I have downloaded the user manual, but all it says is that there are 3 zoom steps without saying anything about it. The older model LD511 only provides x4/x16 zoom and is no good. Thanks very much.

It's from its US web site. I remember I couldn't get it at first, then I tried another path and found it. And you know what, I just tried and have forgotten how I got it! Anyway, according to the manual the zoom mode only work if the HDMI resolution is set to 480p. It won't work if it is set to 720p nor 1080i.
If you prefer I can email it to you. I think it's around 1MB.

Guess what, I found it. The manual is not available at the normal US site, but from its service site:

If the link is not good, just go to their worldwide site and then select the service "country" site.

That page uses a Javascript: Download File thingy so its not possible to post a link to the PDF file. You have to a search on "191" or "DN191H" to find it.

Hi a quick question for those 191H owners out there , the manual for this says
If the file is recorded with GMC, the unit
supports only 1-point of the record level.

Though i have read that 3 point is supported by the Zoran 888 chipset @ wwdivxtest.com or www.mpcclub.com you can get the divxtest cd which contains a good selection of test clips , if anyone knows of other test cd's let me know. Im trying to get my local AV dealer to un box one of these (im in the uk btw) so i can test but there not overly helpfull.

Thanks

Matt

can't find any reviews on the LG dn191h anywhere. What is the bottom line on this player? it looks like it may be a pretty good interim dvd player.
post #44 of 260
Note: The LG 191 does not have a setting that allows you to pillarbox 4:3 material on a 16:9 TV. This setting is essential if you have a TV that won't let you choose "Normal" when inputting at 720p or 1080i over HDMI and you don't want 4:3 material to be linearly streteched. I recently rejected the Philips 5960 for the same reason.
post #45 of 260
Hey disgruntled1 any other suggestions , one with decent divx playback and a USB connection would be good
post #46 of 260
Went to pick up the LG-DN191H at Best Buy, but went for the 511 instead, which is now on clearance. They seemed to be selling new and open box 511s for the same price.
post #47 of 260
Since there is no response to my earlier question regarding the zoom mode, I guess the zoom mode is not that good and probably zoom up too much for just getting rid of top & bottom black bars of 2:35:1 DVD movies (like the x4/x16 zoom in LD511 probably more for zooming up to view JPEG pictures). This player is selling for at a relative expensive price at BB and IMO is not worth the extra money over similar players from panasonic/sony (I don't need DiVX playing capability). Time to look at other player and thread.

My 418 died on me-I'm gonna get the Canadian market 531 to replace it-I liked my 418's picture quality.

What would you pick this over the 191h for? Just curious...the 191 has a tray instead of that awful suction loading.
post #50 of 260
One reason is that you can hack the 511 to upscale over componet-try that with the 191H!!

511 was selling for ninety bucks and seems to have a pretty good rep for divx/xvid. Figured that could hold me until I can get my hands on a reasonably priced HD-DVD or Blu-ray that can also play a range of files, divx, etc.

But then I have to rip it with either DVD Shrink or DVD Decrypter and burn a copy.

Well yea.
post #55 of 260
So that's my point-if you have a player that can upscale through componet you don't have to go through all of that crud.

The problem I have with that player is that I tried 3 of them and all 3 had to go back, it just seemed poorly built unfortunately.

Maybe ill try another one but this 191 is indeed doing quite well so far playing the upconverted Ripped vids.

I recently purchased the LG Progressive Scan DN191H DVD player with HD Upconversion. It was a good deal, and I wanted the DiVX playback. The player works pretty well, and I am really enjoying the DiVX and SVCD capabilities.

The player had a sticker on the top of it, listing off a few of its main features. In the section listing off its memory card reading capabilities, it lists MS Pro Duo as one of the cards it accepts. However, I soon learned that they do not in fact fit into the memory card slot, and had to (carefully) fish my card out with a pair of tweezers . Did the sticker have incorrect info, or am I missing something about how I should have inserted the MS Pro DUO? I also have a camera that uses XD cards, and those pop right into place in the slot.

I find that the player plays DiVX files well, but every now and then, it loses audio sync with the video. It remains out of sync until I stop the video and restart it (it restarts where I left off... I just press "stop" once, and then "play"). Is this a problem with the video codec, or do I need to upgrade the firmware of the player? Any other ideas as to why this would be happening?

In addition to this, some DiVX movies experience "image breakdown" problems... parts of the image on the screen will drastically pixellate, and will remain that way until the scene changes and the pixellation is essentially "wiped clean". Since this only happens with a few videos, I assume this is an encoding issue as well. FYI, the videos with this problem play back perfectly on my computer.

Thanks for any advice and help!

Hi hockey2112

I have the UK version of this dnx190uh its got a usb port rather than teh media card reader so i cant be much help there but divx wise ive been running some tests using the divxtest cd and a few files from seemoredigital and the only files ive found that do what you have found are those doen using the high bitrate divx settings (for stuttering) and Nero GMC 3 point warp (for teh bleeding) strangly the bleeding doesnt occur with the xvid GMC 3 settings. Its all been a bit slap dash my end but if i get time im going to try and document it properly.

Aside from that im finding it a great bit of kit its playing discs my old player and laptop refused and i was pleased to see it came with an HDMI cable we're usually stiffed in the uk when it comes to cableing . All i need to do now is get it to accept a USB HDD device as im sorted

Oh in case you need it theres a multiregion hack available at videohelp but still no joy and upscaleing over component though its a new device so im living in hope

Matt

Hey I have a question to people who own this dvd player. I used to have the lg hdtv tuner with dvd player built into it. One great feature it had was the zoom screen fit mode. It was such a good feature because it stretched the top and bottom to eliminate the black bars but it did not remove any of the sides of the picture. I have the new sony and it doesn't have anything good on it to remove the black bars. I was wondering if this new lg player had the screen fit mode. Can someone look in their manuel and see if it talks about it in there or confirm that you have used it? please help
