I have an old iScan HD+ that has, unfortunately, ceased operation.
I was using the iScan HD+ for several reasons.
(1) to line double/quadruple a laserdisc source
(2) to change the LD and standard DVD signals to progressive such as 720p
(3) "on the fly" zooming in/out of letterboxed LD for a 16 x 9 HDTV Sampo monitor. (Also applies to some DVDs that inexplicably are 4:3 w/ letterboxing). Of course I need the zoom to retain the correct ratios, and essentially "chop off" the top and bottom letterboxing.
(4) to pass through DVI from my Samsung OTA broadcast HDTV tuner.
Did I mention I prefer inputs -- S-video, composite, and interlaced component, with outputs DB-15 or possibly YPBPR component.
Can you help me get the best product for my purposes?
I did find there is something called Communications Specialities Inc (CSI) "Deuce" 2230 HD and 2240 SDQ, but I need 1 box with the combined functions, plus DVI (if possible). These units sound like they are still manufactured, but may be 10+ year-old technology? Is there anything else out there still being manufactured that is any good ??
Thanks for any advice...
