Bill,

You should probably begin filing a complaint with Paypal to grease the wheels a bit. It's obvious HKflix are making you jump through hoops to waste your time. They'll try to avoid taking the...

Re: Cyberhome 500 questions

Yes, several. Do a search here for more information.



No way. PQ is not one of the Cyberhome's strong points. Don't get rid of that Pioneer yet.



The CH is decent for playing PAL, but...

Mods for this line of JVC's are firmware independent, so you don't really have to worry about that. We discovered some of the early 500 models have the "fade subtitle" bug, where certain subtitles...

No. Those should be fine.

[B]

It is dark, and there's definitely a red push on both the 500/402. Anyone who claims these players have great picture quality should see an optometrist...

Re: Which players do best PAL=>NTSC for INTERLACED TVs?

If your PAL viewing interest is STRICTLY films (not TV shows), then you can swing it with a Mediamatics player in interlaced mode. Most PAL-films will be fine, but be ready for occasional combs. Some...

Well, chances are it's just software incompatibility. What you have to do is find other people who have the same player and DVDs, or test your DVDs on someone else's CH-500. If other people are...

It's dropping frames; I've seen it also. By any chance are those two R2 discs put out by the same company?

Shimmering is not a firmware issue; it's a PAL conversion and interlacing issue. You either live with it or change your setup.

I can verify the CH-402 does indeed do proper anamorphic downconversion on 4:3 TVs. You might notice a slight asymmetry in the letterboxing, but geometry is correct. Apparently, the very early...

Re: PQ loss in PAL->NTSC conversion players?

There is PQ loss in conversion, which may or may not be noticeable - it's mostly dependent on the player. The Mediamatics players conversion from PAL->NTSC looks as good as a native NTSC image. If...

Skip the Dragon releases. The Italian Shock Phenomena DVD is the one to get. It's the extended (Italian) cut, and looks much cleaner than the Dragon versions.

What are you talking about? Do you mean MPEG audio? On the 520 you won't be able to access an MPEG audio track. That's a glitch that should have been fixed with a firmware upgrade a long time ago,...

Re: Yet Another Which Player Do I Buy Post

Pass on the Jaton.

The construction is about as impressive as an 8th grade electronics project built inside a shoebox. In fact if you could find one in a store, you'd probably be too embarrassed...

Yes, the XV-S500BK does the PAL->NTSC conversion out of the box... it's even stated in the manual. The player only needs to be modified to circumvent region coding.

However, when you use the XY scaling on a Malata the subtitles are also "scaled" with the image. It's no big deal unless you are zooming OUT a lot.

Re: Malata 566?

Wow, that's an ugly player.

They're using a cheaper prog-scan ESS chipset instead of Mediamatics, so the 566 is basically an overpriced Apex.

Stick with the 520.
