    Hi i read somewhere that the denon 3910 only let you use component cables with HDTV's. So i was wondering if i would be able to use component cables from the denon to my pd30. i will not buy the denon unless i can use component. Thanks. :)

    I don't know about that - what would be the point of having DVI and HDMI outputs on the 3910 if component connections were the only permitted connections with HDTVs.

    I don't know your model - but look at the back: does it have a series of inputs colored red, blue, and green? If so, it takes component inputs.

    I don't see why you wouldn't be able to link the two. They both have component so you should be able to connect the two. Afaik there are no restrictions preventing you from doing so.

    Check out the video processors forum as there are some views on resolution via DVI/HDMI for the 3910.

    Lee (loonatic) has one for sure...

    The 3910 can output 480i/576i & 480p/576p via its component outputs and 480p/576p/720p/1080i via either its HDMI or DVI output.

    Cheers, Lee

    I've got a 3910 hooked up via component to a PD30 and its an excellent picture - what component cables are you using? Are you using a component switcher?

    I am using monset cables and no i am not using a component switch. Do you have the same movie (starship troppers superbit) and could test it. Couse i hokked it up to my sony and it showed the same signs there. But so did my sony player. but they where not as aparent. But that tv is 32 inches and the pana is 36. What settings are you using in the player menu. Dnr and such. Is you picture soft?

    I don't have that film I'm affraid :(

    Factory default for all 3910 settings other than speaker management for SACDs and DVD-As.

    Have you tried it with any other film? It could be the film, maybe, possibly.... As the Denon is a better player and is showing more detail of the film - warts and all.
