EDGE does have an IR sensor. It is on the front, just underneath and to the left of the DVDO logo. It may be hard to see in a photograph because it is recessed. There is no RS232 port, but EDGE has the rear-panel mini-jack control connection.

Edge has an IR eye on the front, and a 1/8" jack for direct IR input on the back, no rs-232 port.

EDIT: Chuck Back beat me to the punch, welcome to the forums Chuck!

Based on this information

Rear Panel IR Input (mini-jack) for use with existing automation systems.

And this

Q: What does the color of the power LED on EDGE mean?
A: EDGE power LED color table:

LED Description
No LED = Standby Mode
Red/Solid = No Signal Received
Green/Solid = Unknown/Unsupported Signal Received
Blue/Solid = The EDGE is processing the input

I beleive that what you are looking at is an LED and not an IR eye


Tom


BTW I blew up the photos that Josh posted and IF there is an eye there it sure is well disguised, I'll let you know for sure tomorrow. Personally I hope I am mistaken about this....

As Chuck stated, there is an IR eye on the front of EDGE, near the front panel HDMI input as well as an real panel IR input on EDGE for existing RF-to-IR or IR repeater systems.

The Status LED is at the bottom of the front right.

Just to Clarify a few things:


The pro will not output a 1366X768 resolution. But will output a 720p resolution to a 1366X768 capable display?> as with the vp50pro?

Does the Edge have: Saturation / Contrast controls> as the Vp-50pro?

Does the Edge have any color managment features: Gamma settings?

Are the algorithms for 1080p de-interlacing and scaling be improved for better 1080p output?

Can someone put some light about these questions?

How are the Color managment features? Are they very accurate?


Can someone display a capture screen of them?


Thanks in advanced

Sorry, but this information from the first post:

Quote:


Fully programmable controls for each separate video input with non-volatile memories:
- Automatic input source detection & input priority selection
- Picture controls with memory for each input: Fine Detail, Edge Enhancement, Brightness, Contrast, Saturation, Hue

That information is everything, less precise

What do you mean accurate controls for Brightness, Contrast, Saturation and Hue for you?

Best regards

Ok. Thanks very much.

I read all post and there is a very little information about CMS capabilities. I'm very impatient

Well I need a chamber of tortures and a voluntary.

Unless the beta phase is already finished? Seeing that Amazon slot like that made me wonder if that was the case...

no, the beta phase isn't finished, it just started...

my "guess" (just having followed a few threads in the past, and having dealt with testing stuff a lot in my previous life), is that the beta phase will probably take at least a few months... but that's merely a guess...

patience, glasshoppah...

No comment. Like I said, it's a guess. Your guess is as good as mine.

That's believable and, if memory serves me right, kind of fits the typical cycle anyways.

Well it seems if Amazon has actually shipped one all bets are off, the horse has left the barn, Katy bar the door, the genie is out of the bottle and the First Rule of the Edge Club is no longer you do not talk about the Edge.

Who said Amazon has shipped one?

The beta units didn't start shipping until a few days ago. Do you think Amazon is shipping out beta units to people?

My amazon EDGE order says "We'll notify you via e-mail when we have an estimated delivery date for this item."

So Amazon doesn't know when they will get them yet. It would have to be when they finish with the BETA.

Any idea if its direct from Amazon, or is it an 'amazon store'?


Usually amazon does a decent job of offering a pre-order, or putting up an 'e-mail me when available' link, for items that aren't available yet.

For amazon stores though, its really up to them how they set it up. That said, occasionally amazon simply screws up
