  1. Hey Santa I found this post really funny So i thought i would do a search on your other posts in this forum to see if any others are as funny as this one. I found alot were as funny as this one. Another thing i have noticed is that all your post are complete waste of everyones time offering useless information and just smart arse cracks. Why is that? 1. You have no clue what you are talking about 2. Read a select few peoples reviews and try make yourself sound smarter elaberateing on them 3. Are boarded old man looking for new friends but have trouble in choosing sides I dont get it please share you great knowledge with us low lifes instead of hanging **** all over the place. You know it has been said before in another thread the most people that hang crap on others buying fine thing and better quality cant afford it themselves so they try and discredit others opinions justifying them being tight arses. Just my opion oh am i alloud to have an opinion in here? <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I find a majority of Santa's posts very informative. I thought the above mentioned post of his was a ripper as did you (well I couldn't detect any sarcasm anyway), but why would you wade into the discussion and start flaming him? I mean honestly. YES ofcoarse you can voice your opinion but I though that was a completely personal and unprovoked attack not an opinion. Seriously "Are boarded old man looking for new friends but have trouble in choosing sides"... There is no call for that. If you don't like the way someone posts then don't read their posts... it's a free forum / country MB.
  2. Ditto! Cheers Glenn!
  3. It will internally rescale (as will any digital display) *any* input to its native 1024x768 as a 16:9 'Full' image (or a 768x768 4:3 pillarboxed 'Normal' image). Desktop resolutions supported by the 42XM3W over DVI-D are (according to my manual): 640x480 @ 59.9/72.8/75/85/100.4/120.4Hz 852x480* 800x600 @ 56.3/60.3/72.2/75/85.1/99.8/120.0Hz 1024x768 @ 60/70.1/75/85/100.6Hz 1152x864 @ 75Hz 1280x768 @ 59.7/69.8Hz 1280x800* 1280x854* 1360x768* 1376x768 @ 59.9Hz 1280x1024 @ 60/75/85Hz 1680x1050* 1600x1200* 1920x1200* * All these desktop resolutions @ 60Hz only over DVI (and in most cases for VGA/XGA analogue RGB also) <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Cheers for the info Ian!
  4. Go Black dude <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Sorry guys I am just waiting for the minute, however I am interested in whether anyone thinks I will see a difference from my 2800 (mk 1) on a Pio or nec 42 inch HD screen? Should I sell the 2800 and put my name on the list? Glencol have you seen the two together? Dan. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I believe that on a display with a digital input you would see a difference. A DVD up-converted to 1080 or 720p is not going to add anything to the video but will look at tad sexier on you plasma as opposed to std 480i over compnent (correct the numbers if I mucked up guys) HTH MB.
  5. OK. I've got a question regarding a PC and the new 42" NEC display. I have the nice glossy magazine which has stack of info and pictures on the new NEC range. There is a picture in there of a Windows desktop and it is massive. I am just curious if the NEC displays can display a PC desktop and therefore games @ 1920 x 1080 over DVI-D? or is the desktop on the NEC restricted to the 1024 x 728 native res' of the 42" Version?
  6. SOLD <{POST_SNAPBACK}> DITTO!!! Looking fwd to seeing what price you can get on the unit Glen. Appreciate your efforts!
  7. I think you'll find it only does upscaling on the HDMI and DVI-D outputs. http://www.usa.denon.com/catalog/pdfs/DVD2910.pdf Checkout the PDF it specifically mentions the HDMI and DVI for upscalling to 720p and 1080i and makes no mention of upscaling via component. HTH MB.
  8. I guess we'd be all in that bind Laurie. Till we know price we cannot completely commit. But I guess what people can indicate is an interest to get one and then the best price can be negotiated based on that. Thats the problem with group buys I guess as danger is people express interest and then drop out if the price is negotiated is no good (A problem for those that do not drop out given the price is negotiated on the number of interested parties). I for one am presuming the price for a 2910 is going to be around (and very close to) the $1,000 given the prices quoted here already. I have another requirement in that I'm after a gold one and it appears all is available is black (yes Ritesh you should be pretty happy about this one) so I hope I don't have to miss out. edit yes laurie this non multi region business is not good for dvi/hdmi output. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I think i'd still be OK with not be able to play non-region 4 over the HDMI/DVI-D connections (ofcoarse i'd prefer to be able to) about 90% of my DVDs are R4 the few R1's that I have I can just watch over a component connection. MB. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> PLUS! I don't have my NEC Plasma yet anyway

  10. Cheers for the info Ian! I have a Yamaha reciever that has adjustable delays to all speakers... bit of a hassle though. Atleast I know I can get around the "lip sync" issue if I need to. Ta MB
  11. I don't understand why black bars seem to be such an issue with people. With the black bars you are seeing the whole picture. If you zoom in to lose the bars you are cropping the sides of the image. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Well it's just a personal preference I guess. I am sure i'd be happy either way <{POST_SNAPBACK}> If you're a new plasma owner worried about 'burn-in', the black bars are a pain in the butt. However, I just discovered last night that my NEC plasma will also zoom DVI input to 2.35:1 - which eliminates all bars around the postage-stamp advertising/SBS format and zooms pillarbox up to full width (cutting off top and bottom, as pointed out above). Cool! For analogue inputs, of course, there are about 6 zoom options - but only the 2 for DVI. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Cheers Ian that's EXACTLY want I wanted to hear as I am getting the same plasma as you. Cheers dude!

  13. First of all thanks for the info guys and those link were great DA, Cheers. That's what I mean. I'd like to know if widescreen sets come with the ability to zoom in on a 1.85 x 1 or 2.35 x 1 source so it fills the whole 16 x 9 frame (ie cutting a bit off the sides but filling the entire display) In paticular the new NEC 42" Plasmas The Sony my boss has could not do this and in 16x9 mode still had the black bars above and below the picture... there was no "zoom" function. EDIT: The Sony I am reffering to is the current 76WS HD model (omg it wieghs a lot!) Cheers, MB
  14. I am keen as a bean to get a 2910. I defiantly wouldn't mind doing a group buy.
  15. Hi Guys, You might be able to help me work this out. I am sure there is a simple explaination but it has so far eluded me I am just about to purchase the new NEC 42" Plasma, before I do I want to ensure I can watch DVDs in 16 x 9. I have over 100 DVDs and the Aspect Ratios vary. 16 x 9 | 2.35 x 1 | 1.78 x 1 | and What is 16 x 9 enhanced and anamorphic widescreen? My boss purchased one of the Sony 76CM HD widesreens and he is getting black bars top and bottom and I could find no adjustment or feature on the TV or the DVD player to change this... the DVD was playing in it's native aspect ratio but I was disapointed that there was no way of zooming it out to 16 x 9. I just want to ensure that when I get my new plasma I can watch all DVD content in 16 x 9? Appreciate any information! Cheers, MB.
