Just send an e-mail to Nick and tell him exactly what you want. He will usually give you an answer the same day or the next one. If they can do it, they will just release a firmware upgrade with the new features. If they can't, they will honestly tell you.
Thanks, LEVESQUE, I'll do just that, but I have a few questions before I email him:
1. Are the configs (I am using that term because it is clearer than using "input") truly
100% configurable? That is can ANY video input be assigned to ANY audio input? For example, in the Lex, when I create something like a "HTPC" config, I can assign ANY low res video input (composite or s-video) PLUS ANY hi res video input (the Lex only has component - no HDMI) PLUS ANY digital audio input (coax or optical) PLUS ANY analog input (2 channel or 5.1 channel). This allows me to assign 2 video and 2 audio inputs to any config and then use the same inputs to be assigned to another config.
2. I can also use the same inputs as many times as I want. I can use, for example, s-video #5 on all 12 configs if I want. They are not locked out of other configs once I assign them for the first time. An example of this usage would be my HTPC. I need two configs for it, one for the main video card and another for the MyHD card, and though they use the same DVI output coming out of the back of the PC, they each have their own digital coax output and analog outputs, so I need to use the same DVI input on the D2 (I know, it will be HDMI) but assign different audio inputs. I can use the same 5.1 analog input several times if I wish...Can the D2 do these things now or will I need to request these features?
3. When using HDMI inputs, can the audio be configured separately, through HDMI, or both? So far I don't have any sources which feed audio through HDMI, but I am pretty confident that the upcoming HD-DV and Blu-Ray plyers will.
I don't want to ask Nick needless questions if they have already been resolved, so I figured I would ask here first. I have to admit that I am really pretty hot on this product and I hope that I can make it work for me. Thanks for all of your help!
