I recently purchased a DVDO Edge, but I was highly disappointed. The satellite channels from Dish Network, both SD and HD showed no improvement whatsoever. The channels looked the same no matter if the receiver was plugged into the DVDO Edge or directly into the 55" Panasonic Plasma 1080p HDTV. The only thing that showed any improvement was the DVD player, and I can get the same results by playing DVDs on my up-converting Panasonic Blu-Ray player.
One of the main reasons that I bought the Edge was to make some of my older composite and s-video components look a little better, but neither of these inputs worked on the Edge. This seems to be a somewhat common problem as I see a couple of people discussing it in another thread on this site.
Since I'm not going to be keeping the Edge, I was thinking of replacing it with the Ambery HDMI Multimedia A/V Center 1080p Up-Converter, which can be found on the Ambery website. But I don't want to be disappointed again. Will this unit provide decent results with both my newer and older equipment or is it just a waste of money?
