I found a place that sells Monivision "Vision Box"s. This contains all the inputs and the tuner. Hopefully, that these are user-replaceable means that we'll all be able to upgrade our monitors to DVI, in a year or so. They claim that these are compatible with CTX MS2900, 3400 & 3800 and Princeton AR2.7T, 3.2T & 3.6T monitors.

It appears that the only difference between the ARxxT and ARxxHTX is the vision box (the HTX's has component). The same should be true of the MSxx00 vs MSxx00S.

(go to the "Warranty, Accessories & Enhancements" section, near the bottom of the page)

I thought all these Princeton monitors came with the vision box. My AR3.2T certainly did (purchased in May of 2001.) It has component inputs as well as RGB and s-video. Did I get lucky or am I misunderstanding something? It does look like the thing was slapped on before shipment, so maybe it is easy to replace with a newer vision box that contains a DVI (assuming it can be that technically simple.)

I was under the impression that the "vision box" essentially slapped onto a VGA port on the monitor -- so while a DVI box would be technically possible, it would be pretty pointless. And an HDCP vision box just wouldn't exist.
