I have a lot SD equipment that my last HDTV could easily be connected to, it had 3 s-video/2 RGB/3 composite/1 PC/2 HDMI.
My new TV only has 4 inputs! What BS, the new HDTV only has 3 HDMIs & 1 shared Composite/Component input. This seems to be common today on new tvs!!
I have three SD HHD recorders I want to connect to it. I also have two SD SAT receivers, Microsoft DirectTV Ultimate TV boxes. If these things work as advertised it would save the current wear & tear my new DMR-69 is suffering from it's current daily duty of upconverting my SC SAT boxes.
I am currently using my -69 when I watch TV connected through one of the HDMIs. When the wife is watching it's easier to have her use one of the other HDD recorders through the RGB connection.
What I am hoping for is a couple of S-video to HDMI upconverters that will allow me to use the other two HDMI connection using the SAT receivers S-video output. If these things give a good looking upconverted signal the wife can use the new TV without needing one of the external HHD recorders to get the picture to the tv.
