I think the bulk of the difference is Rev. E adds MOCA 1.1 (faster MOCA speed and required if using with Tivo Mini anywhere on the same MOCA network) and Rev. I adds gigabit ethernet. Sorry, I can't...

I hope they do indeed get restocked... I was strongly considering pulling the trigger on two of the remaining 15" D4s, but a pair of 18" D4s is what I'd really prefer. Telling my wife I'd bought...

What are the Rev. numbers of your MI424WRs? The Tivo Mini requires Moca 1.1 and will muck up a network if there is ANY MOCA 1.0 device connected. The Rev. E and higher of the MI424WR are...

There is a small amount of washout in 3D, but you're going to see this in pretty much any sub-$1k projector. It is offset to a certain degree by the brightness ramp-up in 3D mode which it sounds...
