    Hi everybody,

    I just picked up the DVD-1600 by Denon this week. I think that it is a great player for the money.

    Anyhow, while reading through the manual I came across two items that I don't understand. First: what exactly does the 'cinema' mode do to the picture? The manual is not clear on this. Second: there is a setting for a 'lighter' or 'darker' picture setting. The 'lighter' setting is supposed to be used while using an S-Video cable while the 'darker' setting should be used with a component connection. What is the player doing and why?


    Thanks!

    Dave

    Dave-

    I believe the cinema mode adjusts the gamma- as far as the lighter/darker setting, I am not sure-

    BTW- The carver 806x amp you sold me is still going strong! I have tortured it, but it just keeps begging for more- Thanks!
