    Hi All,

    I'm just about at my wit's end here!

    I bought a Sony KD-32DX150 a year or so ago, and recently bought a Denon 2910 DVD player. The 2910 produced a good picture, but both samples I tried were incredibly fussy about disc quality - the sound and picture broke up all the time on numerous discs that played perfectly on every other player.

    Denon UK lent me a 3910 instead, which is much better at playing all discs - however...

    When the 3910 is outputting NTSC via RGB to the DX150, the top third of the screen is shaded bright blue. It's a graduated effect - the very top is bright blue, and the blue tint gets fainter further down the screen until it vanishes about 1/3 of the way down.

    Neither of the 2910s I tried had this problem. Both 3910s I've tried do have the problem, but they don't seem to do it with a friend's (non-100Hz) widescreen Sony.

    So, Denon will blame Sony, Sony will blame Denon, and I'll be stuck in the middle. I've had a tentative poke around in the Sony's service menu, but haven't been able to improve matters.

    Has anyone else out there seen this? Any advice? I guess most people with a 3910 are using the digital or component connections - people like me using plain old RGB are probably in a minority!

    TIA for any help,

    Simon

    loads of threads on the forums about denon dvdp & sony wega compatability issues (i have the same problem).

    just type in "denon sony rgb" and you should get about 1 million hits :rolleyes:

    I'm afraid you're stuck with s-video (until you downgrade to plasma/lcd ;) , at which point you can use component and get annoyed about macroblocking issues instead!)
