I have an HC400 that's still in service that's pretty similar in light output to the 810. When I A/B'd it with my 8350, the 8350 was significantly brighter ( both had new lamps). If you don't want...

I have the 8350, and while the ANSI contrast is OK, but the on/off is nothing to write home about. I'm coming from CRT though.

For a little more than your budget, avscience.com has...

Anthony,

The issue is probably the quality of the sync that the old consoles produce. Many were rather fast and loose with the RS170A spec, and conformed just enough for old analogue TV's, which...

AceInfinity,

'dual band' usually pertains to IR sensors / demodulators. Many IR protocols use a carrier frequency somewhere in the 34KHz to 36KHz range, but then there is a leap to 56KHz. The IR...

The answer to #2 is yes as well. There is actually only 1 RF 'channel' used by the URC remotes. What they do is insert a small packet at the beginning of the IR stream that identifies what 'virtual...

The RF-20 / MRF-100 operate on 418MHz like the MRF-350, but, don't support 'channels'. The MRF-350 will only work with an RF-20 if the MRF-350 is set to channel 0 ( accept all commands ). Likewise,...

As CEDIA has come and gone, I don't think anything will be announced until next year. The HC720 was kept in the lineup for several model years before being effectively replaced by the 8350.
