i bought a dv59 yesterday and will receive my dvi to hdmi cable today. i will try it tonight and will post my findings. keep in mind that in a french forum they found that the european version of the dv59 would not work with the benq 8700. think i may be a hdcp problem. i hope the dv59 will work cause i really like it. i'll find out tonight.
just got home and hook them up. hdmi from dv59 to dvi on 8700 works fine. what a relief. i was afraid it would not work after what i read. in addition another forum member is having with this dvd player and his pj through hdmi. fyi, i am using a gefen 4 to 1 dvi switcher and a gefen dvi to hdmi cable. i haven't had the chance to tweek the pq yet but will try to do it tonight. will keep you posted.
i am using a dalite hcmw screen. i used to have bravo d1 via dvi and the pq was great. i won't be able to watch any movies until friday since i just sold my receiver and won't get my outlaw seperates till friday. i expect the dv59 will have better pq. the gefen works great but i found that my sony hd200 and benq remote switches the inputs on it. i guess some of the buttons on those remotes have the same codes as the remote for the gefen. so i have to block the ir on the switch. but that is not a big deal as long as it allows me to hookup mulitple dvi devices.
