There is definetely something going on with the red in pdp.. Imagine when you see the color bars with the red filters, you are suppose to see several black rectangles over a red background... In other words the other small color bars should disapear... With pdp, these bars don't dissapear completely.
In all the other video presets you can see this happening...

I think we have all learned our lessons from powerbuys. For example, in Hamilton NJ, Rock Dreams is an authorized dealer, and quoted $642.00 for the 05.

The lack of communication from our seller has baffled me as well. I did purchase the 3800 two weeks back due to the issues we were hearing with the first units available, and the 05 will be shipped right back if I began to see lock ups right away. If a $399 Sony 350 can perform flawlessly, why cant this machine? All I know is I have two weeks left to return the 3800, and if the 05 doesnt come in that timeframe, its automatically going back because the picture with the 3800 is incredible on my projector, and my standard dvds have never looked better, even on my two elite plasma's (920 and 1130).

I'm lost in this land of red- so which is the better preset for Kuro owners, 'PDP', Pioneer PDP or Professional. In other words what produces the best image?

I just called my local BB and the Customer Service rep said they have 2 allocated from their warehouse to be shipped to their particular store. She said they get a truck on Monday.
Here's the interesting part... two days ago they said that they had 0 in their warehouse.
Since it's clear that particular store's allocation is very recent (within the last few days), what are the chances it's a v1.0 player?
Also, I *just* signed up for the BB rewards program... can I get my hands on a 10% off coupon without waiting for it to just show up in the mail?
I was just about to pull the trigger with VE, but if I can get my hands on a 10% off coupon, I might run to BB on Monday.

Is anyone getting the 05 through the powerbuy a few months back?

I didn't notice any inherent red push from the PDP, but I definitely wasn't doing any calibrations back and forth to tell otherwise. All I did was switched back and forth between Pioneer PDP and PDP during normal content mostly to see any visible differences, which there were. Also interesting to note, The LCD setting was noticeably darker than PDP or Pioneer PDP settings, probably due to a totally different gamma setting. Like I stated, Pioneer PDP offered a more natural looking image than the others for my display.

I don't think you are correctly picturing the port savers I am talking about. They don't increase the lever arm because they include a short length of flexible cable. For example:

I went with a VE pre-sale back in June based on the high praise they had on this site.
Must say I'm a bit upset these units are out there and I have to wait until the end of month. (2 1/2 weeks)
I suppose I can wait- but man- major bummer.

The more I think about it is that this is silly that I can't use HDMI for audio and component for video, the work around is just not obvious.

Yes, I saw this one also. But how would it prevent applying strain to the HDMI port on the unit? The only minute advantage to that connection is making a thicker cable thinner at the actual HDMI port. There will still be strain on the HDMI port from the wait of the cable pulling down on the connector.
IMO the only thing that will positively prevent pressure on the port itself is something like this.
This would prevent any force from being applied to the connection itself. All the force would be distributed to the screw connection instead of the port.
