|- Fixed macroblocking (don't bet the farm that this can be fixed on the 5900, or they likely would have been able to do it by now)|
I thought that I read directly from DenonJeff somewhere that the next patch for the Denon 5900 would include the macroblock fix and increase the speed of the menu change, and possibly fix the aspect problem with the DVI connection.
I am surprised to hear that there is a visible layer change on the 5900 as it reads ahead and does it very fast. HDMI is something I would never use, as I don't see myself changing my Halo processor anytime soon and I would never send sound to my TV, plus this would mean a new HDMI to DVI cable.
So if anyone can confirm that the fixes I listed above are in the works for the 5900 and that the 5910 will not be able to playback WM9 HD, I will be purchasing the 5900. In order to do WM9 it would require a new Silicone chipset or Real Magic, which may mean a whole new set of problems. My only other choice for a Universal player is the new Samsung 941 and something tells me it just can't compare on the audio side...thanks everyone.
Any chance the 5910 will be offered in silver?
