First the news which may interest all you DV27 owners. Picked up my new DV27 yesterday and it has software version 1.78. Now to the meat of the matter, had a few hours to play with the machine and it seems like an excellent piece of kit. BUT what the fudge is the story with the CR-314 remote. Maybe its me, maybe I'm missing something, but is it not the poorest design you have ever had the misfortune to use? The player boasts to all who can read it has "motion adaptive progressive scan" or something. Fine, but surely most display devices capable of taking advantage are pretty expensive and only the domain of the serious film buff. The kind of person who likes to get close to the cinema experience, the kind of person who watches films in subdued lighting or even near dark. So my question (finally) to Mr John Dawson of Arcam has to be, who the hell decided this design was worthy of putting in a box with otherwise superb products? The old CR9000NU which comes with the DAVE module may not be the best remote on the planet but at least it's sensibly laid out and can be used in the dark. Am I just being picky or does anybody else agree with these sentiments?
