    Can anyone recommend one for this money. I'm getting a projector and want
    to connect using DVI. Any suggestions?

    Many recent threads discussing options, Panasonic S97, Samsung HD745, Pioneer 575, Momitsu V880 etc.

    That's as maybe but the point is it's not got DVI - we don't want someone going out and buying one thinking that it does.
    FWIW I changed from a 575 via component prog scan to a 745 via DVI and the difference is highly noticeable. DVI is simply so much sharper, better defined and brighter.

    Oakleyspatz, do you see the Denon 1910 having macroblocking issues?
    It'll be used for projector, so large image might show it up?

    Hi Patrick.
    What were you feeding the DVI into and how long was the cable?
    Thanks...PJ

    I am currently selling a multi-region Denon 1910 in the classifieds and have seen no macro-blocking issues with it and I am using it on an Infocus 4805 with a 90 inch image !!!

    I was merely pointing out this is an endless debate round here and there are innumerable threads discussing all the possible options .. I doubt anyone's foolish enough to go buy something without doing any research.

    I have a Thomson 27LCDB03 TV and use the standard 1.5m DVI cable that came with the 745. Picture is spot on (apart from blacker than black but this isn't really an issue for me). Overall picture quality is stunning. There's no macro blocking that I can see, colour reproduction is superb and there's almost zero picture noise.
    It does tend to show up poorly encoded discs though - especially those TV series where they've crammed 4 hours onto a DVD9!
