    Don't understand why dvi/hdmi Denon 3910 player only works for ALL discs in ntsc mode.
    Setting to PAL or AUTO leads to the color crosshatch screen on my Panny TH-42PWD6EX + DVI board.
    3910 display shows 480p, same as when I load a PAL disc!
    Picture seems OK, but it does puzzle me...
    After a lot of fiddling with the setup I managed to spin a PAL disc while showing as 576p, but I could not reproduce it the next day!
    Anyone?

    The Panasonic has always been arsey with 50Hz signals (PAL) and HDCP on the DVI board in general. I know it's not that much help but the DVI card is simply too much of an unknown constant to be relied on (IMO anyway).

    Perhaps you got the Denon to send out Pal as 60Hz or convert PAL to NTSC first or something? Although, I think the crosshatching is a telltale sign of HDCP problems.
