10 years ago I bought an iScan Pro. Since then I've upgraded over the years and always had an external VP. But now that onboard video processing has improved I'm wondering if I should do away with using an external VP.
I recently replaced an Edge with a Duo - the main reason for this was CMS and the ability to control it via RS232. But now that I realise how much I'd have to spend to make use of CMS, it's something I'll probably never use.
I've mainly been using the Edge/Duo for HDMI switching, to change Brightness/Contrast, adjust the sound delay and to force 4:3 for older DVD's and a few Sky channels. I do have PreP enabled for Sky, but can't say that I really watch much TV anyway.
I have an Onkyo 5508 with the Reon-VX video processing, but this might be replaced by a 5509 with the Vida VHD1900. I use a Projector and have a 70" screen, so it's not huge but I do sit fairly close.
For the last 3 years I've not had to take picture through my AVR/Pre-Pro, but my equipment is moving into another room - which means I'll have to rely on the OSD's and overlays to check/adjust settings etc. So as the Pre-Pro has all the above adjustments (although no PreP) I wondered if it might be worth considering removing the Duo.
I'm not quite in a position to test it for myself right now, so wondered if anyone had any advice or opinions please?
