OK, I'm currently using the RP82 with AE300 component inputs. I'm considering upgrading to the Bravo. Here are Four Basic Questions:


Q1. I'm in Hong Kong...is the Bravo 110-220v power supply or is it 110v only?


Q2. Is it multi-region or does it have a hack?


Q3. Just how good is the deinterlacing is it up to the same quality as the Faroudja?


Q4. Is there a significant increase in picture quality between Bravo 720p DVI and the RP82 480p component (when used with the AE300)


SHOULD I GO FOR IT OR NOT ???


:confused:

I have the D1, but haven't tried it on the AE300. I know I'm beating a dead horse, but I still can't figure out why everybody wants to do:


1. 480i->480p->720p->540p


instead of


2: 480i->480p->540p


I would feed 480p from the Bravo, not 720p.


It is the all digital path that is the magic of this player, IMO. If your display device is native 720p and the scaler in the D1 is better than the scaler in the projector then it makes sense to use 720p output. However, for a 540p device I don't think it makes sense.

Okay, other people have reported that 480p and 480i into the DVI port on the AE300 doesn't work at all. And 720p has problems. So, it doesn't sound like the D1 is a good fit for the AE300 unless Panasonic fixes some things or Bravo implements special output resolution and timing for this projector.


It is always possible that the Samsung DVI DVD player scheduled for June will do better, but it sounds like the issues are in the AE300, not the D1.
