Just started playing around with the HD931 whh has just been released. Here's a few early observations: - The MSRP was raised to $399.95 on the product price sheet I received. - The player does not play DVD-A as was previously stated in press releases. - Scaling to 720p or 1080i (selectable) is only available through the DVI output and requires HDCP (per the manual) - It has zoom features (not tried yet). - The Faroudja chip is only used with the DVI output. - The component outputs use the LSI Logic Ziva 5 chip for deinterlacing, which is also the MPEG decoder. - The player does not have the chroma bug, but does have some other less noticeable chroma problems in interlaced mode. (more on that later) - It will play MP3s and JPEGs on CD-Rs - It should play DVD-RAM, ROM, DVD-R, +R, DVD+RW and -RW (haven't tried any though) - It has both optical and coaxial digital outputs.
