Well it finally came! 1st impressions are that it looks and feels much better than the pictures. It will never win any style or buld quality awards, but it is more solid and heavier than many budget players! The manual is in German, so it is frustrating trying to find out anything, but the remote is all labled in English and the language can be changed to English very easily. For those who want to alter the regional code here is the method: 1.First switch on (there should be no Disc in the disk drive) 2.Then once no disc appears in the display press the direction keys in the following order: up, up, down, down, right, left 3.The Special Menu will appear in which you can alter the region code (0, 1, 2, 3 ) 4.Press the Enter key to store the settings and leave the Menu. I first connected the 365 to my TV via composite to simply set the thing up rather than waste bulb life on my PJ! Using Any Given Sunday (R1) the picture looks astonishingly good! The weird thing is that the output from the 365 looks SOooo much better when the output is set to any of the 3 PAL outputs rather than as RAW NTSC, even though the movie was NTSC!!?? This is the same for the menus of the machine as well. I haven't tried S-Video, RGB or Component as I will only use this player with my Z2 via DVI. OK, DVI had me scared at first as I could not get a picture at all and thought the Cable Solutions 9m DVIU cable was not up to the job. However, when I changed the DVI setting on the 365 to 480p, the PJ managed to sync and I then toggled to 1080i followed by 720p output and all were displayed with no sparkles! The strange thing is that 480p shows the picture twice (I think) with a full colour pic sqashed up on the left and a blue version of the picture on the right? I will investingate and clarify this later. Still, I'm only interested in the 720p output anyway, so all is good I think. The only thing that concerns me is that when the Z2 says it is receiving a 720p signal, if I go to the menu of the 365, it still says 480p on the DVI output? I guess that as I have set 480p as the DVI res, this is the default only, but it will still let one toggle through the other resolutions? The DVI picture is very good BTW, but I'm not sure how much better than say component would be? BTW, scaling is also available via Component, but I don't know about HDCP issues? I believe it would not be an issue, but the DVI is HDCP compliant so who knows? Interestingly, I found that the red was less intense on my Z2 when it was set to RGB - (PC Digital) rather than RGB - (AV HDCP). For those who have been following Buns's endeavours, this may be the key to some of the red deficiency issues at high IRE's he's identified? I only seem to have 480p, 720p and 1080i choices for DVI, so I think I have an old firmware, as 576p is meant to be available (50Hz) and also 720p at both 50Hz and 60Hz? As the Z2 will only accept 60Hz 720p, this is probably not important to me, but will be to some. The manual also shows a page for custom settings for DVI, which will please all those folks with 1366x768 PJ's, but I have no idea if my firmware has that enabled or how to get into it. I will ask Yamakawa how to check which firmware etc I have. I can't really say much more yet, as I only had a little play! I will let you know more once I have watched some more material and played some more. If anyone has any specific questions, I will do my best to answer them.
