    Just bought a Denon 1910 - nice machine, but the JPEG playback is slow. My previous player was 4 yrs old and didn't support JPEG playback, so I have no performance comparison.
    The Denon is taking 10-12 seconds to change from one image to the next - but the manual says it should only take 5 seconds. The images are burnt to a Kodak Picture CD format. They are from a 5 mega pixel camera - if the disk can only read at normal DVD playback speeds, I'm not surprised it is slow, but they why does Denon (and other brands) advertise playback for JPEG? Is this problem with my machine, or are my expectations too high?

    I reckon it probably depends on how big your jpegs are. They probably quote for a smaller size, to advertise a quick time as you would expect...though 12 seconds does seem excessive, even for pic from a 4 megapixel camera.

    So do you think I should complain? (seems to be the trend with recent Denon players, judging by htis forum!).

    Do other players exhibit the same slow playback?

    I think the wait time is adjustable in the setup menu, have you had a look in there and tried reducing the time?

    There is no slideshow menu or tab in the 1910 (at least I can't find it!). Maybe I should have bought a 2910??

    I tried playing back a disc of JPG's on my 2900 recently and found that they rendered very slowly, and the quality wasn't particularly good either. These were 5 mega-pixel images from my Sony DSC-F717. Now I just replay them from the memory stick straight from the camera.

    I have a Pioneer which takes a long time to show JPEGs. I assumed it was due to the number of pixels. As the TV cannot show the full resolution anyway, why not create a disc with just 640 x 480 pictures and they should load quicker?
