    Is there a forum member that has purchased a 975V yet? They still are not available in Canada.

    Also can anyone clear up this signal loss issue when converting from HDMI to DVI-D.





    My understanding is that all you are doing is losing the audio signal and that the video signal is a pass-through, with no signal loss occurring through the adapter.

    The signal loss if any would be minimal. It would depend on the qaulity of the adaptor.

    You are correct in that it would just pass the video signal.

    Rather than using a adaptor I would use a cable with a DVI on one end HDMI on the other.

    I've seen the adapters, not the cable of which you speak.  Where have you seen them??

    One of our forum sponsers, Better Cables, has the adapter cable also. It goes for $49.95(USD) and can be seen HERE.

    I bought the 775 V. The picture quality on this dvd player is simply AMAZING! I cant compare it with the 975 because i have not seen that model. As for the freezing, My dvd player has not "frozen" on me yet. This is my first 775v and it works wonders.

    Seeing this dvd on my new 36xs955 (it automatically upconverts the signal I think?) is outstanding. I can't imagine a better pq with the 975? I believe the 975 would show better pq on LCD and plasma screen instead on tubes....

    From what I have read, there is little difference between using component cables and hdmi cables on a tube set.

    As for the arguement on the price of cables. I bought $12 component cable from target and they do work just as good as $100 cables .Of course, $100 cables like monster is made to last a LONG time. These are STRONG cables. The target cables will show the same PQ, but the cables are not made to be plugged in and out many times. I beleieve they will rip or break aftre constantly doing so. If you plan on just using it in one place, then target is the cables to buy...

    Just a quick post while watching WS game 2 (GO SOX!) I just purchased the 775v and the picture quality is outstanding in interlaced mode, and the sound is fantastic and detailed on both SACD and on Redbook CD thru the analog outs. It seems to have better D/A conversion than the DA4ES which makes sense because it is a newer model and is probably packed with evolutionary technology. Sony really seems to have hit a home run with this model, my only quibbles is the remote seems to have a short range and it only comes in silver...
