A bit late on my asking, but I bought a new DVD player the other day, and it had the DVI-D cable for it and my HDTV. I have been having problems getting it working right so far, as when I plug it in, I lose the ability to adjust my black levels and anything dark in color turns to all black. Scenes such as the worm attack in Star Wars: Attack Of The Clones is barely visible at all with all of the blacks. My question is this: is the DVI-D cable really worth it? Or at this point should I just give up on the thing and return it for a nice player without it? The player I bought won't do the Progressive scan thing without the cable, so if the cable won't let me get away from the black as tar blacks, and I have to use components, it seems silly to have paid what I did pay for a player that doesn't even use Progressive scan. BUT if there is just some little thing I am missing out on this, and the DVI cable is that great, then I will keep trying to figure it out. I do have a month to mess with it. Thanks for the time.
