Because the player is basically a computer (has a CPU/RAM/etc) and generates enough heat to require a fan.

More and more electronics are using higher speed CPU's that need fans.

Kal is right. This HD-DVD player is basically a pretty powerfull P4 w/ 1 Gig of ram.

I got my BG-DVI module today, so I hope to test this new player tonight with my 2 HD-DVD titles. Can't wait!

Looking forward to your report on both the HD-DVD player and how well the BG-DVI copes with HDCP.

I'm working in a HD STB manufacturer company and we have SD/HD products that handle HD playback with passive heat-sink only (Broadcom or ST main IC). These products manage the EPG/navigation menus as well as HD DVD.

I'm expecting an HD DVD/BR player without any noisy fans ...

Hi John,

I don't doubt that at all.
If I had I wouldn't have purchased mine last year.

It's just that it's always good to hear how well these things cope with upcoming products.

I sent you an e-mail this morning asking if it would be possible to have a copy of the English manual as I got mine prior to it being available.Any chance?

Regards

Kevin

I rigged a very temporary setup until my 25' HDMI to DVI cable shows up. Anyway, I'm happy to report that the HD-DVD player works just fine as expected.

Here's the unit plugged into the back of my 1208/2:

http://www.cstone.net/~dk/barcohdmi1.jpg

The back of the HD-DVD player. Here you also see my digital coaxial running towards the equipment room for the audio.

http://www.cstone.net/~dk/barcohdmi2.jpg

The front:

http://www.cstone.net/~dk/barcohdmi3.jpg

And finally a very blurry shot of the player and projector in action:

http://www.cstone.net/~dk/barcohdmi4.jpg

I need to tweak the setting on the projector for the newly created memory block, but the deepness of the colors on both titles is amazing as is the level of detail even before me going in and doing any tweaking. I had a couple of friends over last night and we watched Phantom in its entirety. They were very impressed. Once I get things tweaked and the player mounted back in the rack, I'll do some compares of the same movie on my HTPC and the HD-DVD player.

The BG-DVI unit functions flawlessly!

John, received my module and it is working fine.

Also, part of my job is reviewing technical product documentation for the products I "own". I noticed some grammatical errors and such in the English version of the document. If you want to send me an editable copy, I can quickly fix those.

Are any of you running 1080p from a HTPC into your Barco via the BG-DVI?

Laric and BangoO french members use this converter at 1080P with their HTPC. You can ask them questions.

Hi John and Laric,
I've had this conversation with John before.
When I select 1080P@60Hz on my PC I get a Pixelclock in the region of 172MHz which is exceeding the expected 148.5 MHz and the bandwith limit.
This combined with the 8m DVI cable I'm using is giving me sparkles.
The sparkles go when I reduce the frequency to 50Hz.
John previously suggested I alter the front & back porches to reduce the pixel clock.
I was wondering what the timings others are using for 1080P.

Hi,

At 60Hz, the bandwith can easily be exceeded, timming are tight you will have to play with PowerStrip to fine adjust and acheive no sparkles

But we (BangoO, RNO and I) are running at 48Hz (47.952) with a pixelclock around 119Mhz, and the picture on our 1292 is more than beautifull ;)

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
1920x1080 47.952Hz
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

PowerStrip timing parameters:
1920x1080=1920,72,47,128,1080,24,9,40,119812,768

Generic timing details for 1920x1080:
HFP=72 HSW=47 HBP=128 kHz=55 VFP=24 VSW=9 VBP=40 Hz=48

VESA detailed timing details:
PClk=119,81 H.Active=1920 H.Blank=247 H.Offset=56 HSW=47 V.Active=1080 V.Blank=73 V.Offset=24 VSW=9
