I don't think I've ever come across a 1080/60p BluRay, plus the Wiki link doesn't show such an option. I understood that most BluRays are either 1080/24p or 1080/60i, though I have come across a couple of 1080/50i discs.Blu-ray is always Progressive - either 60Hz or more usually 24p
I have had this problem on a number of occasions. The 4K capable HDMI chip in the Denon is probably struggling to talk to the non 4K PJ over the long HDMI. The newer 4K chips have a much tighter tolerance over distance, even if passing lower resolutions. If you replace the HDMI with an optical HDMI it will probably solve the problem, has for me everytime. The only issue is that the optical HDMI's are not cheap.Guys,
I have a new VPLHW40ES, 26 hours on the lamp timer, used in low power 2D mode only. I have only owned this about 6 weeks and not watched many films in their entirety yet (I must admit I have been switching the PJ on and off for short duration over the last few weeks but this has been due to testing out different screens etc. I always let the PJ cool down and I do not switch it on and off repeatedly during a single day). This is a UK sourced brand new PJ from Sevenoaks sound and vision and not a grey import.
On with the problem. When I have had time to watch a movie, I have noticed on a couple of occassions (seems to be when watching DVD only thus far) the screen goes black for a few secs and then normal playback is resumed. Audio is not affected. This intermittant on/off of the image can occur for between 1 and 8 seconds on average, and seems to be very random, and I can see no cause for the issue. When I look at the lens at an angle when this problem occurs, it is as if the PJ is actually switching on and off, although the fans are not interrupted so this is not a power issue as far as I can tell. Seems odd that this has only ever occurred whilst watching DVD discs.
Physical setup is this -- sony BDP S7200 HDMI ---> Denon AVR X2200w ---> Sony PJ.
Can anyone help please?
The Player can usually be set to Interlaced or Progressive Output for DVD - you can try it On/Off and see if you 'see' more artefacts using the TV deiterlacing vs. the Player deiterlacing.
Additionally you can usually set the Player to up convert (to 1080p - p being Progressive) or leave the DVD in its native format and allow the TV to up-convert.
Blu-ray is always Progressive - either 60Hz or more usually 24p
Have you a link for an optical HDMI unit? I'm rebuilding my room this spring and I'd like to replace a 7 year old HDMI cable (12 metres long and it passes 3D without issues) with something capable of 4K to allow for future upgrades.If you replace the HDMI with an optical HDMI it will probably solve the problem, has for me everytime.
