Thanks Mani, and you are welcome, I am proud to have the device in a high end theater like yours.
It would be easy to go off on a K tanget which I don't want to do, but I do appreciate the good info on K. On another tangent for DVD I prefer the proprietary no-ring scaling provided by Lumagen over anything else I've seen, but DVD is much less of an issue these days. Just a handful of old movies not released on BR and some kids stuff I dont' want to rebuy. I am curious though, when DVD is set to passthrough your VP saw 480i? It didn't even deinterlace?
Cost aside, the show stopper for me and the K is the "vault". I have a lot of things that won't fit the vault. If K opened up the system to allow unencrypted files or structures to be loaded, by the user, I don't think I could resist and woudl buy one tomorrow at CEDIA for my personal theater/demo room.
Not a show stopper, but a big ding for me missing on K last time I discussed with them, was a "watched" flag so you could filter out things you had watched. I've got about 130 movies on my server that I haven't seen yet, or are very old I haven't seen in years queued up. Many of these were loaded a long time ago when I had the opportunity to borrow from friends and family so their "recently loaded" flag does not fit. They explained a potential workaround but it was very high maintenance.
