Sony Qualia LCD performance with Blu Ray versus DVD 480p

by fisheou / March 1, 2008 1:11 AM PST

I own a Sony Qualia KDX46Q005 LCD Wide Screen TV using the Tri-illuminesence (LED) backlighting. Its native output is 1080p with maximum allowed input to the controller of 1080i. All input is made 1080p output via the Sony WEGA engine. I am currently using an OPPO DV-981HD (not a high-def DVD player) and a Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD-Recorder (also not a high-def player) both set with 1080i output (i.e., up conversion of 480p DVD to 1080i by the players to the Sony Controller). Question: if I were to change out the OPPO with a Blu-Ray High Definition player would I see a significant difference in the quality of the picture on this high-end LCD Sony TV?

Huge difference on my Sony 46"

And the more you watch Blu-ray or HD content the less content you will be with up-converted DVD's, even well mastered ones. And its not just a sharper image, its the increased contrast and color depth.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
