    while watching dvds on a philips 9986 from my denon 1910 @1080i via dvi on the the odd occasion there is a blue flick and today the whole screen went blue and the message "picture format not supported" was displayed and then returned to the film with no intervention from me.


    just wondered my it did this and is my denon on its way out/crap

    many thanks all

    Don't have one so can't help but why are you upscaling a 576 source to 1080i and then letting the screen downscale it to 768 lines? Wouldn't it be better to just output SD material at 720p - may even get round your problem as the TV will need to do less processing of the input signal?

    I wish, the lack of connections on the 9986 is a weak point:)

    I get the blue screen and the text a few times when the HDMI is first initialised (720 and 1080) but not seen it after the first couple of seconds.
    A blip maybe in the HDMI output and DVI input not quite communicating successfully but once it's locked it's stays.

    i never thought about the connection side ,until i realised everything would be going digital then i realised that one dvi was not going to cut it, i have been looking at switchers (gefen) but ideally i want one box that takes dvi and hdmi (3 of each should do it) and outputs one dvi.

    as for the 9830 im sure its great but the 9986 is still fantastic and i cant beleive an improvement whilst watching dvds as i cant see any faults,i think ill wait for the next model coming up :)
