I am afraid LG is now a Sony's puppy. I see the DVI nightmare is coming for those who purchased HDTVs before 2003 (no DVI input). This product (3510A) is a perfect example:
- No 720p/1080i DVD output on component
- No DVD output on RGB
This whole DVI BS is all about what Sony and Pioneer etc. want. Video euipment should be equipped with firewire ports.
Personally, I am not sure you are correct regarding your statement "-no 720p/1080i DVD output on component and -no DVD output on RGB.
Further, firewire output on STB would benefit copying digital content, but would not be compatible with most displays. Most digital displays have component video, RGB or DVI inputs, which the LST-3510A has.
LG is an industry leader and innovator in everything they do, cell phone, white goods, STB's and Plasma displays. LG's STB's are purchased and re-sold by Hughes and Sony. Sony and Hughes are very competitive manufacturers of the same technologies. Hughes and Sony selected LG's products because they could not build the quality and features at a competitive price.
LG is on the front line of advanced digital technologies. These statements are well known facts by dealers, consumers and trade and consumer magazines. LG built the first ATSC HD tuner/PVR, the first High resolution DVD player/QAM/ATSC HD STB. LG/Zenith is the inventor of the HD technology adopted by the FCC as the industry standard.
We have sold a large quanity of LST-3510A's, however, unfortunately, due to very limited allocation, only delivered a limited quanity to date.
My own beta test and the consumers who I have delivered the units to are extremely happy with the image quality and overall operation. This is truly an incredible product, integrating a very high resolution DVD player, QAM and ATSC HD decoder in one box with DVI, RGB and component video output.
