Am I correct that some fourudja chips are problematic with certain displays?
Do I have anything to worry about with the 980H?
I have a Samsung 4674, and the DV980 makes a superb companion for it. No Faroudja, no macroblocking, just pure A/V nirvana. For best results, of course, do a basic brightness/contrast/saturation calibration on the TV when you set it up.
