    Hi all,

    im buying a new Philips 20" 200W6CS Widesceen TFT soon, and was also thinking about a new DVD player, the Denon 1920.

    The monitor will be used with my PC, but want to play DVDs in HD from the Denon too (in 720)

    my question is will I be able to use the DVD player with the screen? ie. DVI -> HDMI? or will I have issues with the HDCP? or any other probs?

    any help would be much appreciated.
    Thanks.

    The Denon's output is HDMI (not sure about the Philips TV input)

    One prob you may have is actually getting the Denon - I've had 2 orders on with 2 different companies, and have had to cancel both because there's a shortage of these players due to overwhelming demand...

    Ever since What HiFi gave it 5 stars, and made it product of the year, they're almost as rare as hen's teeth!!!

    There was one on eBay recently that went for well over retail price (including the P&P), which is silly.....

    Seeing as this display will be used with a PC anyway, why spend over £200 on a standalone player when you can achieve even better picture quality (scaled to the native resolution of the screen without having to upscale twice) using far cheaper PC-based solutions, without the hassle of swapping cables/buying a splitter?

    Theatertek along with PureVideo (if you've got an Nvidia card) or ffdshow works wonders. Check out the HTPC section of the forum ;)

    In that case give ffdshow a go, if your PC isn't up to the task of using it to scale to your display's native resolution (1680x1050) then the PureVideo codec from Nvidia is your best bet as it'll offload most of the work to your graphics card.

    Either way, you'll get far better picture quality than with any standalone kit as your screen won't be doing any scaling ;)
