    A 1st look


    Have just received a Momistu V880 dvd player with DVI output.

    Have now set it up with my HS10 PJ and had a quick go...


    Must say the picture on this player is VERY good...very detailed and has a sharpness that a svhs or component lead can not match

    Skipping the digital to analouge conversion adds a lot to the picture...

    My other players are a limit 9900se prog scan and a sony 860 301 disc player , both conected via comp leads

    tried 1 or 2 disc's this afternoon and have had great succsess with all modes the players offers

    DVD's played in 480p are very sharp look with a more colourfull look to them ,ramping the player up to 720P adds a bit more detail in screen but gives a slightly softer image, but still sharper then my other players.

    Im going to stick avia in now and check a few test paterns to see if there is realy more detail in 720p or 1080i..

    So far the player has played in 480p 720p and 1080i it plays PAL discs in either of those flavours and scale the image to fit!.

    If anyone is intrested in a scene from a particular disc then stick it up here and i will have a look (asmuing i have it of cousre)


    Both my other players will now be sold....even my beloved sony juke box....i love it for the ease of use but getting off my ass for a better picture is defiantly worth it :D

    nice to hear mate. Must admit I'm starting to get tempted with this after paying with the delights of DVHS in 1080i. Wonder if anyone local has one they fancy renting for a couple of hours.:)

    Steve where abouts are you......as you may or may not know i've been toying with the idea of D-theater.....so might be worth a trip over with my new toy...

    seen the jvc in action but never with a HS10

    Just been reading about the US equivalent of this machine on the AVS forum. What price is it? where can it be bought? can it be made region free? I wonder how it would compare to a HCPC with DVI running at 1368X768? Is there any evidence of jerky pans? What refresh rate does it feed to the pj for Pal and NTSC(if region free)? Did you have corn flakes for your breakfast? and what is your favourite colour underware?

    Thanks

    Respectamonkey, perhaps you could check out what refresh rate it feeds to the projector for Pal and NTSC and does anybody know how this machine would compare to a HCPC. I have a very stable PC running with Theatretek and an excellent picture. The only minor gripe is that the HS10 runs at 56hrz from the pc and occasionally I notice a little jerkyness on slow pans.

    I think Ian Guinan and/or PCavelle posted a mini review of this player in comparison to their high end DVD players and HTPC. In the DVD Player section I think (strangely enough :) )

    Hi,

    Are there any UK dealers selling this DVD. I would be concerned
    about the repairs,I assume one would have to send this player back to Hongkong for it?

    Im pretty sure that it plays at 60hz with both ntsc and pal.....thge pictures are very smooth with no motion jitter

    i think i prefer the picture when in 1080i mode....looks seriously lush


    Put Avia thru the dvd and pj last night using the Resultion test card...100 and 200...

    in 480p there banding and artifact on the circle and the bottom wedge.....stepping the player up into 720p clears it straight up...when in 200 the test card is fantastic in 1080 compared to the 480....really show loads more detail and very sharp...

    Put in a Pal disk and got the last option in the HS10 menu (I think it's called INFO and it will tell u exactly what signal and refresh rate the projector is recieving

    the thing that made me pretty sure was actualy looking at the menu you mention Comer :D

    Watched Crying Freeman tonight on the v880...watched it in 720p @ 60 hz....this is a R2 movie....hope that helps


    One thing i did notice was that i had a lip syc error at the start of the movie whhich was cured by stopping and starting again...

    Also there was a jump in the movie which happened twice but this maybe as the player is on top of my amp and that is pretty hot.....

    I'll file it in the rack over the weekend and will watch a few more movie on it....fingers crossed that this is a over heating problem

    Hi Karl,

    I think there were problems with overheating reported by some guy on avsforum. He seemed to cure it by moving it to a cooler position. I'm still waiting for my replacement player to come from Hivizone - hope this one works properly. :rolleyes: glad to hears your's is working well.

    Hi Steve...

    I've now swapped the v880 with my limit player and have given it time to cool down....was absolutly boiling on top of the amp...

    will bung on a movie now b4 i go out for a few beers on a nice summers evening......been house hunting all day and i'm done in..

    Got gangs of newyork to watch later

    Found 1 smalll problem this morning and that was when i had the player in region 0 it failed to play a R1 disc of Joe Dirt....only R1 that its failed to play so far......did the secret menu and changed it to R1 and it played fine......very weird :confused:
