Greetings I have a Philips PF9986 LCD and have a wonderful Sony NS955 player running via component through the DVI input to the screen. The picture is fantastic (although I do have some blue screen problems that Sony are addressing with the player ). The connections are abysmally messy (component to VGA to DVI ) and I am certain that this must detract from the best picture that could be displayed. My question, if you can help me, is whether the Denon 1920 through a direct DVI connection could provide me with a better picture? From the threads I have read here I also see that thre are teething problems with the Denon (it shuts down if you stop the dvd mid way through to resume at a later time ). In addition I have read that a DVI input can result in a border around the image reducing the visible size displayed. Can anybody confirm these glitches or let me have your view? Many thanks, all advice gratefully received.
