I recently purchased a DVD-2900 to replace a DVD-A player and SACD player. The DVD-A player is a Toshiba SD-9200 and the SACD player is a Sony DVP-NS900V. I feel like the sound quality is just as good but the DVD quality is absolutely horrible. The picture is grainy, overly bright, washed out, and almost unwatchable. I have the unit hooked up using the progressive scan output to my Toshiba 40H80 inputs. The Denon is configured for progressive output and I have checked all the conections even to changing cables. I cannot get the Denon to look any better than a $50 Wal-mart DVD player. The dealer is a a loss too. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions it would be appreciated.
