This is what keeps me enamored with the HDL. The picture is just so damn nice that it is easiER to tolerate some of the quirks. Unfortunately, not being able to pass 480i and 1080i into the same input IS GOING TO BE A SHOWSTOPPER for me and anyone else with a HD cable box.
This running 2 cable boxes AND an OTA HD receiver is for the birds.
OTA HD - Local channels not yet on cable in HD(CBS)
Cable box 1 - Normal 480i cable channels
Cable box 2(HD) - HD channels (2 locals, Discovery, HDNet, HDNet Movies, HBO, Showtime, etc.)
Nothing like totally shooting the WAF when it comes to channel surfing..... Telling me to run S Video in parallel with the component is a band-aid addressing the symptom, not fixing the problem.
Please guys, address this issue. It is GOING to be an issue with a lot of folks very , very soon. If it can be fixed in firmware, that's great. Give us a bit of an idea how long we have to wait and I'll be satisfied. If it is a hardware issue, let us know if you plan to:
1. Address it as a free update
2. Offer an optional update ($$$)
3. Not address it at all. :(
Thanks in advance.
I am serious...and don't call me Shirley.
