    I've just got a 4805 pj and have it connected up to my Denon DHT500sd via component. As I already had the Denon, it has saved me some money. Very happy with it and cannot justify a separate system yet.

    i have read it is possible to connect a dvd player up to the 4805 via an hdmi-hdmi cable via an adapter, does the adapter come as standard with it or do i need to purchase it separately? what is its technical name? how much does it cost (uk £)? ta.

    The HDMI adaptor doesn't come with the PJ. The 4805 has a P&D (M1) socket. FWIW my DVI adaptor was £20 from Lindy. I run 2 DVDs via a scaler and find the DVI from my Yamakawa 365 great with quality source material but my old Marantz via RGBs is far kinder with poorer material.

    I'm running a Pioneer 868 via HDMI/M1A adapter. I've recently upgraded from a knackered Pioneer 757, which was connected via component, and I can actually see the difference in the picture quality by using the digital connections :smashin:

    I have a Denon 1910 connected via DVI/M1 Adaptor. No problems excellent results, old films can be better via RGB.

    this is just the system I am considering - having just bought a 4805. Anyone else recomment the Denon, or think it worth paying extra to get HDMI link?
