We're just playing around with our new Z2, deciding on screen size and distance with some temporary blackout cloth. We're going for about a 2m wide screen at a 1.5 screenwidth viewing distance. Screendoor is not a factor, but what we are seeing is a fair amount of pixellation, even when we take the image size down significantly. The source is our trusty 5 year old Sony DVP-S725, sending interlaced component over a temporary £20 10m cable. We're replacing the cable with 14m of Belden 1694A thanks to Mark Grant. 3 questions: How much is the naff cable contributing to the problem? Is it time to put the 725 out to pasture? If yes, what sort of spec and models should we be considering?
