    I'm new to the world of HD RPTV, as I just got one last week. I've watched two DVDs so far and have been very impressed. Shrek was great and I thought MOnsters Inc looked outstanding.

    I got my copy of Star Wars Ep.II back from a friend yesterday and expected to be blown away from everything I read about the tranfer but I was quite dissappointed. To me it looked very grainy and overcompressed (the reds in Palpatine's office, Chap ~3 were very blocky/course).

    For what it's worth, I have a Pioneer 656A DVD player which is progressive, and the Mits 48-511 RPTV. Does anyone have thoughts on why this would have looked so poor on my display or have suggestions on how to improve it. I just set everything up with AVIA to the extent I could without going into service menues (that comes later).

    As always, I'd appreciate your thoughts....

    The Mits have a good deal of red push from what I understand, which could explain the reds in palpatines office. The mits require a good deal of tweaking to get the most out of them. Also, your set probably needs more than one week to fully break in. I would do some searches for Mits. tweaks.

    As for Episode 2,it looks incredible on my Pioneer Elite 530. Right behind Toy Story 2 in my opinion.
