Hi Folks


(My first Post)


I am awaiting the arrival of my Panny TH-42PWD6UY, meanwhile I found a DVI output DVDplayer , Samsung Model,. This has 720p output which I believe this plasma screen (Industrial model) can process if I purchase addtional DVI input slot.


My Questions is will I note an improvement of visual significance over composite( digital-analog-digital) cable connection if I go all digital.

The cost for DVD player is $270 Plus about $160 for DVI input adapter,

Since I need to but a new DVD player I had budgeted for the sony at $130.


The extra cost to me looks about 200 dollars, will I appreciate this in my retinas......? Plus I suppose DVI input will come in useful in future.


Any thought much apprecaited.


the forum has been a great resource to me so far.


Tony

A reply in the DVD forum said

the Samsung uses the PC standard DVI output for color mode (0-255)rather then the TV/HDTV standard (16-235). This causes "crushed blacks" on many HDTV's with dvi. Check if your set will allow color mode adjustment.


Samsung will be releasing a new dvi dvd player later this year, and its supposed to allow changing the color mode.
