    Back surrounds or another set of Atmos?

    Do a google search for "7.1.2 versus 5.1.4" and you will get a lot of opinions. The majority seems to be 5.1.4 is better especially for watching movies.

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    I bought the Denon AVR-X6700, use it for my 7.1.4 system and am very satisfied. For my 7, I use M&K speakers that I got a long time a go and they are great. I did not have to spend any more for them. My subwoofer was falling apart as it was so old, so I got an SVS PB-1000 which does a great job...

    Zenith DVB 318 & LG 7832 DVD Player merged thread

    Dear Group, After working for a while (after I unplugged and plugged in my DVB318), my player went completely dead. It does not respond to the buttons on the front of the player or the remote control. I guess I will be looking for a new upconverting player but am hesitant to buy a new DVB...

    Dear John.Morris, I would be interested in your comparison if you do one. My Zenith DVB318 has gone dead on me and I am looking to buy a new DVD player. Although I was happy with the DVB318 when it was working, I am hesistant to buy a new one because I was using it via components and I...

    Zenith DVB 318 & LG 7832 DVD Player merged thread

    Thank you! I tried unplugging and replugging the unit and all the buttons are working again. By the way, when the unit powered up, it was still in 1080i mode. The upconversion button is working and I took it through the 480p, 720p and 1080i modes again. Thank you for your help. RonaldS

    Thank you for the suggestions. When I get up the courage later, I will try the unplug and replug. I just have to be ready for the risk of losing the 1080i and the functionality of the buttons. I will post the results when I try it. RonaldS

    Zenith DVB 318 & LG 7832 DVD Player merged thread

    The physical buttons on the front of my Zenith DVB318 stopped working this past week. Even the power on/off and disc eject/load buttons do not work. The remote control can still control the unit. As a result, I can no longer control the upconversion feature. At least the upconversion is...

    Zenith DVB 318 & LG 7832 DVD Player merged thread

    I am using the 318 at 1080i. I have the same problem from time to time. Each time the problem is easily fixed by stopping (not pausing but stopping) the DVD and restarting (okay from the same location). It happens occasionally and I assume that it is a problem with the DVD player and not...

    Zenith DVB 318 & LG 7832 DVD Player merged thread

    Browing the Zenith website, I see that it still touts the dvb318 as supporting component output at 1080i. Here is what I got which I clicked "Jack Pack" in the product description menu of the dvb318. Jack Pack Component Video Out 1 (1080i) Digital Audio Out 1 (Optical), 1 (Coaxial)...

    Zenith DVB 318 & LG 7832 DVD Player merged thread

    I use my Zenith DVB318 with a Sony 34xbr910 (direct view CRT widescreen native 1080i)) hooked up with Tara Labs component cables. I finally adjusted my TV controls using Digital DVD Essentials on the 318 at 1080i. What a revelation! I watched Superbit 5th Element and saw so much more filmlike...

    Will Sony release this XBR --TV ?

    Dear Mauro, I have a 34xbr910 and have had not problems with regular cable TV. There are no pixelation or artifact problems other than what was normal for my other TV due to problems with the cable signal and not the TV.

    Zenith DVB 318 & LG 7832 DVD Player merged thread

    I have a Sony 34XBR910 direct view CRT. I think it has native resolution of 1080i and is supposed to upconvert all signals to 1080i. I find that the upconversion to 1080i through the Zenith DVB318 is superior to the upconversion by the TV. The DVB318 upconversion results in a much smoother...

    Upscaling/HDef DVD Player merged thread

    Regarding Steve Schaffer's last post, I feel that the 318 at 1080i upconversion has given me a definitely smoother more filmlike picture. My comparison is against my old Onkyo DV-S555 480i player (with which I was very happy) and to the 318 running at 480p. On good DVDs, it seems to compare...

    dvi versus s-video improvements

    Regarding "34XBR910 and Denon 1815, DVI kills both svid and component. Kills." I have a 34XBR910 and am trying to decide what kind of DVD Player to get. I thought that getting a DVD Player with DVI output direct into the DVI input in the 34XBR910 was the way to go, but a lot of comments seem...
