Well I popped the cover off my Panasonic CP72K disc changer one more time to take a more exetensive look then last time. Another member had mentioned to check on the back of circuit board because that is where the Sage FLI2200 chip is on the RP82. I carefully unplug the circuit board from the connector that was connecting it to the main power supply board. I flipped it over and there was the pretty Sage FLI2200 chip!!! I felt like I struck gold at that moment so I went and got my Finepix 2300 digital camera and shot some hires 1600X1200 pics of it. I am going to downsize the pictures to save bandwidth on my home page though. Does anyone know what the number on the Sage chip mean and why the CP72 Sage chip's numbers are a little higher? These pictures will prove to anyone that doesn't think the CP72 has Sage/Faroudja FLI2200 DCDI deinterlacing does indeed have it by the angles of the pictures showing it is the CP72 that has it. Please enjoy the pictures and feel free to brag at what a wonderful player and deal this player truly is.

Hurtz,


Do you know if the video quality is comparable to that of the RP82? I'm going nuts looking for an RP82 locally and can't find one. I do have a Circuitcity within 10 miles that has the CP72, but I refuse to compromise video quality. Advice?

Considering both the RP82 and CP72 have the same Sage/Faroudga FLI2200 deinterlacer and mpeg decoder, their picture quality has to be identical and I have heard this from numerous members. When I got mine I noticed a much clearer, rich, and sharper picture then my JVC XV-S500Bk player it relaced.

 www.ecost.com completely rapes on shipping. For that 10lb DVD they want $29.00 more for GROUND shipping. You can get it for a $1 more at www.jandr.com and be getting it from an authorized Panasonic etailer and be able to get the $30 mail in rebate.

When using the component outs in progressive mode, are the s-video and/or composite outputs active in 480i (at the same time)??

I'm going to grab it today at Circuitcity for $250. I know I'm paying too much, but I know what I'm doing, trust me. If I order online, it will get picked up on the wife's home-theater-expeses radar. Getting it at a B&M store allows me to get it in stealth mode.


Yes mark, I hang out there alot, and in the Digital Projectors Over $5k forum too.

the one item that was still outstanding was the matter of the MPEG decoder that nobody could confirm - see:

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...hreadid=183685


the RP82 uses Analog Devices ADV7199 chip


Can you confirm that this identical chip is in the CP72 as well? (did not see it on the photo you posted - and your old photos are gone now)


thks!

I opened up my CP72 for a third time and took this picture(a little blurry but you can identify chip if you sharpen) of the Analog Devices ADV7199 chip. The chip has an ID of:

Analog Devices

ADV7199KS

0212

118934.1

CP72 Analog Devices ADV7199 Chip


I hope this proves to everyone the CP72 does have the exact same hardware as the RP82!!! Enjoy...

Analog Devices chip is Digital to Analog converter and not MPEG decoder. MPEG decoder is Panasonic.

The CP72 uses the same Panasonic MPEG decoder chip. Here are the the chip ID comparisons:


RP82

MN67753IKA

JAPAN

224U7M18


CP72

MN67753IKA

JAPAN

224U1ME9


I have included a semi blurry pic of the CP72 MPEG Decoder chip for proof. This should mean it does have 4:4:4 processing just like the RP82 since the MPEG Decoder chip is the same right?
