I have been following this Major novel (thread?) since it began. No small feat.
My conclusions are that some like the HDL and some don't. Those with fixed pixel devises are getting mixed results with some, mickey mouse,
work arounds for the remote and pixel mapping to fill the screen.
For CRT's it seems that as long as you stay with a 60hz refresh it works well but if you go to 48 or 72hz it may or may not be stable. And those in PAL land are pretty much out of luck. Is this correct?
Key Digital has not responded to the issues raised on the forum in any timely fashion of late. Yet they were VERY visible asking for input on the feature set and layout and appearance of the HDL during it's development stage. Everyone was SO excited that this product was going to be just about everything to everyone. Alas this has not been the result.
My questions for those in the know, or preferably Key Digital are:
1) Does the HDL flawlessly support ALL the resolutions it claims on KD's web site?
2) Does the HDL support flawlessly 48 and 72 hz refresh rates for ALL of it's resolutions?
3) Are there going to be changes made in the remote control capabilities, ie more memories, dedicated commands etc?
If no to 1,2, & 3 is there an agenda to resolve these problems? If not then come out and tell us so we can move on and look for other options.
If yes, then tell us so we can know when the issues that are holding us back have been corrected so we then can purchase the HDL.
What most of us would like is a little more info as to the problems and corrective action taken so as make an informed decision. After all isn't that what this forum is all about?
Many manufacturers use the input that they glean form this site to fine tune or correct their products which ultimately helps us all. Stewart Filmscreen and InFocus come to mind. If products work well for us on this forum, then it's a slam dunk they will work well for most of the rest of the world.
Come on Key Digital give us a little respect and allow us to to help you make the HDL better. Give us some insights into what we can or cannot expect in future HDL improvements. Or are YOU happy with the HDL as it is and you are done?
Any input would be GREATLY appreciated.
I am in no way mad. I just am in need of some accurate info as I am truly thinking about getting this product.
