I posted the question yesterday, asking if I'd likely see a difference between my Sony DVP s-360 (entry level) DVD player and the Panny RP-91, using my Panny Tau 27" screen. Well, I brought home the Panny RP91 and.... I wasn't expecting to see much difference at all, given the S-video, interlaced only capabilities of my TV. But....WOW! Was there ever a difference. The RP-91 put out an awesomely crisp, clear, detailed picture with more realistically nuanced color. Subjectively, it almost felt like when I originally moved from VHS to DVD with the Sony. I simply would never have believed my TV was capable of such a picture - to my eyes I'm seeing a better picture than most of the bigger, newer CRT set-ups I encounter at the store. BUT, but...I also have cause for concern, as I also encountered some troubling picture qualities. Here are the problems: 1. Jaggies. Lots of them. Anything with a straight line seems to break up and shimmer with jaggies (especially when characters are wearing glasses). Letters, anything. On the Alien disc, when the camera does that famous crane shot reveal of the dead alien pilot, the various architectural lines surrounding the structure became a riot of shimmering lines. This virtually never happened with the cheap Sony player. What gives? Can this be addressed? I plan to eventually use the RP-91 in progressive scan mode with a plasma. Will progressive scan mode cure this? (I keep reading of the RP-91's "smooth" film-like quality in progscan). 2. Ghosting. There often seems to be a ghost image off-set from the original image. This is very evident at the beggining of Toy Story. Looking at the Pixar logo, the letters seem to be a faint duplicate of the letters, slightly off-set from the original letters. Has anyone else seen this with the RP-91? Also, during certain scenes, the top of the letterbox picture, where it meets the top black bar, jiggles and blurs, with some occaisional frame information actually bleeding outside into the letterbox. 3. Contrast. The blacks seem "too" black, loosing detail. Shadows quickly become pitch black. Characters wearing tuxedos have little detail on the dark tux, like they are wearing a pitch black suite. Definitely not a natural balance of blacks, and it can get fairly annoying. I have not fiddled with any settings. Can this be fixed on the RP-91? I've looked at the RP-91 FAQ and, perhaps some of it went over my head, but I'm not sure these exact problems are adressed there. As much as I am utterly amazed at the RP-91, if these problems don't have a fix, I'm not sure I could live with these picture problems. Any comments? (This is a gift for me/wife, and I've got to figure out fast if I should return it). Much Thanks, Rich H.
