    Ok, I just ordered an RP-82 from Onecall.com for $206.10 delivered. What should I look out for when setting it up next week. I currently have a Sony 700p hooked up via component to my 36" Sony XBR400. Does progressive but I am dying to try out a player with no chroma bug and the Faroudja chip, and the price was right.
    thanks Randy[​IMG]

    Set "transfer mode" to Auto 1 and "picture" mode to Normal to start. After you've viewed a few DVDs, you might want to try the Cinema 1 or 2 picture modes, but always leave the transfer mode on Auto 1 to use the Faroudja deinterlacing. Make sure the progressive light is on (on the front panel if your using that output (seems simple, but I've seen a lot of people think it's been turned on when in fact it hasn't).

    You also have to enable progressive mode in the player setup menu in order for the button on the front of the player or the progressive mode menu item in the "display" menu to work. It ships with progressive mode disabled.

    If you haven't already done so, fix the red push on your XBR400. The RP82 seems to push a little red itself:

    Otherwise, it's pretty much set and play. Just leave it in Auto 1 and Normal picture mode...

    Can't say that I've experienced this. My RPTV was calibrated to 0% on red, blue and green with another DVD player (JVC), and the RP-82 is right on with those settings. I have had to kick up the black level (brightness) a bit though.

    The RP82 definitely pushes the red more than my previous player, the Panny DVD-RV31. I have the 36" XBR450...

    Sorry to ask this in your thread, but what is everyone using for their video settings, specially the block and mosquito noise stuff. Also where is the rp82 "accurate" on its brightness and contrast settings?

    I haven't touched the block noise settings. Does not seem to need it. Also, I use the "lighter" black level setting and I have settled on the "Cinema 1" instead of "normal" picture setting. I did not adjust the internal picture sttings of the player otherwise. Anyone else care to comment.
