I did find my way round some of your posts and i read that you don't like the PS3 as a DVD player. I have both a PS3 and a denon 1940 and in my opinion, I think the picture quality between the two is pretty much the same, and I think the Denon is a good DVD player.
Which do you prefer for SD-DVD burhan? The 1940 or PS3?
What T.V are you using and how big is it?
I don't have a Denon 1940,but i use my Panasonic DMR-EX75 recorder for dvd playback.
I know that very recently their was a re- post by Clare(WHF editor )said she reckons the dvd playback on the Ps3 is slightly better then the Denon 1940.
It's an opinion i don't disagree with.
Anyway i have so far tested Rome season 2,Terminator 2,Rush hour 3.
Every time i prefer the Panasonic ex-75- Sharper picture,better black levels,smother motion,overall it just looks more cinematic,but i think i,m going to do another test,so i am in no doubt after reading Clare's post.
