I have a question about the Pioneer Elite DV-59AI DVD player. When I use the HDMI connection to connect it to my PRO-730HDI RPTV it locks into full mode. I was happy that I upgraded my RPTV because it doesn't lock into full mode when using progessive scan. Is there anyway to control the screen mode so it doesn't lock into full mode using the HDMI connection? For non-anamorphic DVDs I'm having to change the screen mode to Widescreen compressed to use the HDMI connection. Unfortunately that makes it windowbox the picture on the sides also making the picture smaller. As far as the DVD player goes it doesn't have the chroma noise problem in red areas of the picture that Elite DVD players have had in the past. I remember reading they used the Faroudja processor in this DVD player but can't find it on Pioneer's site now to confirm. When upconverting DVDs to 1080i using the HDMI connection I was really surprised how much better the upconversion made the DVDs look. Wow! I'm really glad I took the plunge. It was really worth the money. I guess it's as close to hi-def as I can get until real hi-def DVDs come out. If anyone knows the answer to my locking in full mode using the HDMI question let me know. That's the only thing I can't figure out & am not as happy with. Most of my DVDs are anamorphic but I'd like to use Cinema Mode for my non-anamorphic ones so the picture doesn't shrink.
