    You'll get excellent service from:

    http://www.digiuk.com/

    However you will pay more for the 935 there. However they were brilliant with after sales collecting the problem units I had.

    I will have a new DVI equipped Yamakawa 365Divix for sale in the next week...

    Cheers

    The Yamakawa 365DivX player is good. Firmware support for it is great as well.

    Of the cheap players I think the Yamakawa 365 is the best.

    It has the picture quality, flexibility and firmware support of the V880s, but has a better build quality. The downside is it is difficult to get in the UK.

    The 935 produces a lovely picture, however it is not without flaws...

    There is no firmware support that is apparent, so you are stuck with 60hz output for PAL through DVI. When you really need 50hz for smooth pans.

    The 2 I had, had issues, like they wouldn't always open the drive tray, or would restart the DVD at random. Once they actually started a movie then they tended to work perfectly until the next time it was switched on.

    It has bloody annoying really bright blue lights on it, even when it is switched off!

    The 935 is however cheap and available in the UK and a good compromise seeing as at the moment the other available DVI playes available in the UK cost LOTS more.

    Cheers
    Marc

    Hi Vicbarry, Yes indeed, I have a Hitachi 500E and will be using this player straight into the DVI input, at present I have an old Sony 725 which quite honestly has absolutely fantastic PQ through component input to the Plasma, I just hope its not £140 wasted and I can see the difference using the DVI input from this Samsung Player, might be expecting a lot comparing a £140 machine with a machine that cost nearly £600 new a few years ago???

    Best regards David

    The player arrived this afternoon at 16:35

    Not bad considering I ordered it from Panther Sunday afternoon, all I can say is my experience is very good with them.

    Am just about to set it up now.

    Best regards David

    Ouch! cut my eye on the piccy.............LOL

    Yes it is better, very much sharper and more detailed then Component, the colours are excellent needing no adjustment I am extremely happy that I certainly did not waste that £140

    Will be digging through the manual tonight..........

    Hard to quantify in percentage the improvement, I can just say thats it is very noticable, even the family said WOW! thats clear, so I guess that says it all?

    The manual isnt exactly "War & Peace" but it has the required info and it is clear.

    There are some caveats with this machine I think, for example when sitting very close to the screen some digital artifacts (in solid dark tones some pixelation) can be seen that can not when played back on the Sony 725, although I feel it might be just because with the DVI input it is so clear that you can see them, but when using the Component input it sort of smudges them together, this isnt a problem though, as from normal viewing distance they are invisible, I am talking two feet away max when I say close!!!

    in total I am delighted with the purchase and feel I am getting the best from the screen now.

    Now can anyone direct me to the hack for this machine please?

    best regards David

    Here you go:

    Samsung 935 MR hack:

    1. Turn on the player.
    2. Press PLAY and STOP on the player. Keep the two buttons pressed until the language selection is displayed, then release them.
    3. Select language.
    4. Press REPEAT.
    5. Enter 57538. The region code will be displayed.
    6. Press 9.
    7. Press OPEN.
    8. Press STANDBY.

    If that doesn't work, repeat the process but in step 5 press 38767

    No problem. Happy to help.

    I'm glad you are enjoying the new picture quality.

    I just remembered what I hated most about the 935....

    The remote. All the cheapies have naff remotes, but the 935 remote is the worst I have ever seen as the search and the chapter advance button were the same button!

    It takes a lot of luck to try and speed through a film using the search without changing chapters. It drove me crazy and I could see no way to program them as seperate buttons on my programmable remote.

    Cheers
    Marc

    Are you using the 720 ( I presume you are david). This judder that was reported in HCC, you notice it????

    The DVI cable in that came with it, How long is it (!)

    I didn't have much of an issue with the judder, but it is there in some slow pans because it is 720p at 60hz not 50hz as PAL really requires. It was however another nail in the coffin for me and the 935.

    The 365 and V880 have modes that allow you to have 50hz for PAL material.

    I think the DVI lead was about 1.5m.

    Cheers
    Marc

    I think uczmeg is right, it seems about that length, can't measure it now as its threaded through the rest of the furniture and equipment!
    As to the judder, I have tried both PAL and NTSC films so far (although havent watched a complete film yet!) and I have not noticed any judder as yet.
    I am using 720 as I can't see any difference between 720 and 1080 modes, and the progressive scan I believe is wasted on my Hitachi as it is an ALis screen.

    Best regards David
