My best friend just purchased the Sony KV-34XBR910 on my advice that it is the best direct view set out there. I am going to his house on Sunday to hook it up for him. He does not know anything about Home Theatre really. Couple of question for you owners: First, we will be going to buy him a new DVD player on sunday. Would a DVD player like the Samsung with a DVI connection make That much of a difference with this set? Has anyone compared the component connections with the DVI? Is it a big enough difference to justify the expense? Does it make more sense to save the DVI port for a Hi Def box? If so, then is a progressive scan player vital with this set? I know with the Phillips sets that have Pixel Plus most people prefer feeding it and interlaced signal and letting the Pixel Plus take over. Does the Sony have a feature like Pixel Plus that makes progressive scan unnecessary? If not, any recommendations for a decent Progressive player from Best Buy? Lastly, is there any vital changes to make in the Svc menu, or just use AVIA to calibrate basic settings? Any other things I should know about when setting up his set? As usual Thanks So much guys!
