I have a 46" DLP Samsung hlp4674w
STD def DVD Denon 5900 connected via DVI
BD Panasonic bd55k connected via HDMI

STD def and BD version of DVE

My question is does the Panasonic bd55k pass blacker than black aka pluge pattern?

I played the BD version of the DVE disk and the outside bar doesn't show up on my TV.
Running it on a friend's Sony Bravia and Sony BD player it displays fine. (the blacker than black bar)
I played the std def version on the Denon 5900 and the outside (3rd bar) displays on my TV.
I played the std def version on the bd55k and it doesn't show up either.

I don't know if it's the HDMI on my TV or it's the BD55k. I've tried two video display settings on the player and it made no difference. So I was wondering if anyone else had any luck with this test pattern?

Thanks much

Hello;
Well I posted this same question in another forum also and based on the response it looks like their BD55k units do pass the BTB signal. Unless I've got a bad unit (which could be possible :heehee:) it looks like it may be the HDMI input on my TV. The TV being a unit from 2004 it's possible. What's strange is it works with the DVI input. I'll try out the BD55K on another persons TV with the HDMI connection to rule out the player.
Thanks much
