DARINP2: Can you ellaborate on the white problems more? I'm borrowing a HD931 for a bit and I'm trying to see whats wrong with it. So far I dont have too many complaints, but I'm having trouble making the colors look what I consider good. I have DVE, but I need to tweak some more...
I don't know if the DVE DVD has an above white test. If it did it would probably be on one of the pluge screens. I know that AVIA Pro and my DVE 1080i DVHS tape have above white tests.
Stacey Spears has done quite a bit of looking at sources for WM9 and he has told me that the most likely place to see above white is with bright light shining through a window. He said that many of these have above white pixels, so if you aren't getting that you will lose some detail. Unfortunately, I can't think of a specific scene from another DVD for testing this. Maybe Vanilla Sky, but it has been a while since I looked at that one.
One way of looking at it is that if it doesn't bother you then it isn't really a problem (but may become one later).
I have been using a Momitsu V880 and it passes the video signal correctly (but also has adjustments for doing expansions similar to the 931). The other thing that bothered me about the 931 when I had one was the edge enhancement. It made Jennifer Connelly's face in "Dark City" look worse than with the V880, IMO.
Anyway, I believe that the 941 is coming out soon (it looks like the 841 is already out) and since the 931 was Samsung's first try at a DVI upscaling player and they made some mistakes that have been pointed out to them, I hope they have addressed some of those issues.
