OK, with that said. Is the left side coming in burry? What you seeing when you are at the same scene?
There is one thing that I can think or is if you are timing 25 seconds you might be pausing at different scenes because the DVI would sent a signal faster then VGA cable because the TV has to upgrade a signal from analog to digital. It might be miliseconds slower but still would be a different scene. That is just a theory of mine.
The DVI should not effect the blacks. As for it showing more, this could be a calibration issue. You should have to make adjustment depending on which cable you use.
The left is not coming in blurry with DVI, its sharp, but its black. With VGA, i can actually make out the left side of his face, the hair etc. Though with VGA it seems a little washed out than DVI, but its giving more detail.
As for pausing it right at 25 seconds, its the entire scene, from second 24 to about 34 (i chose that part of the scene b/c you can really tell the difference btwn vga and dvi).
I also took a ScreenShot of the image on screen and saved it as a Bitmap on my desktop...With DVI the image looked the same as it did while paused, the left side being black and unable to make out detail/hairs. Then i connected the VGA cable and viewed the image, and I could see all the details in the face and the hair etc on the left side. So its not about when i pause or anything, its about the color representation of VGA versus DVI.
I'll take my camera home tonight and take pictures w/ my camera to show you exactly what i mean to show you the difference. The image as a whole is a lot darker with DVI than with VGA (using the same color/brightness/temp controls...although VGA is very limited with calibration options) and VGA is a little washed out looking.
