Loving mine so far.. despite minor issues (it's a complex world!)
Nick sent me 1.11e to see if it will solve my 1080i input over component, no clue yet what to do about the HTPC not recognizing the D2 - might have to get a DVI Detective, not sure yet. Maybe a new new vid card might work, I might trade in two cards to get a newer one. (running x1900xt right now)
Nick was kind enough to also forewarn me that the PS3 might not like v1.11e and such, so I'm not 100% sure I want to upgrade yet unless I can rollback to v1.11 as the PS3 and the HD DVD players are more important for now than 1080i over component for the xbox, etc.
However, I might need it if I switch my 8300HD to component to get around HDCP issues with remote usage over coax (channel 3 old school!) - my wife uses the PVR for a remote TV. Stupidly the 8300HD considers coax output an HDCP threat!!! Nothing to do with the D2, but that might force me to upgrade to 1.11e & risk PS3 playback.
But I must say I love the configuration options, the scaler side, and all with the D2 - brilliant!
For my HD-A2 I'm using DVD1 for 1.78 aspect, DVD2 for 1.85 (minor vertical stretch and minor horizontal crop to maintain aspect), DVD3 for 2.35 (full vertical stretch) and DVD4 for 2.40 (full vertical stretch and minor horizontal crop to maintain aspect).
And then using TV1-4 with my PS3 with the same aspect based config using the "copy from" thing in setup then simply change HDMI input & name.. love it. Of course doing it from Live Config would have been even easier, but I like how it's quite dooable without.
Of course now I need my RS1 back so I can hook up my CIH lens & such. Can't wait!
