Yup...DVDO Edge units...I will start forwarding tracking this evening for those who I have already contacted.

(If you have not been contacted yet hold tight...I'm-a-workin'-on-it. ).

Awesome! Thanks for the update.

Wow, that was fast! Thanks Jason and thanks DVDO!
I got my notification for expected delivery on Monday. Can't wait!

Dumb question, perhaps, but will an HDMI cable be shipped with the unit?
post #364 of 7061
I am sure NO on the HDMI cable. If you are asking then you should probably not be BETA testing it.

Mine shows delivery for tomorrow! This weekend will be fun!!!

I am officially voting you least-likely-to-actually-comply-with-the-NDA. Within a week you'll have both Onkyo and DVDO's lawyers tag-teaming your ass.

No way, I promise to not say a word until they say I can. I have never violated a NDA with any company. Seriously.

Like I said, dumb question. I figured what the heck, if Oppo is giving 'em away, maybe Anchor Bay is too
post #368 of 7061
Still waiting for word to see if I'll be a lucky beta tester (fingers crossed). This is so exciting. Not only do we get a reduced cost for the product, but I hope to help out too in the beta testing process.

EDIT: Looks like I received an auto reply saying that the person who goes through the questionnaires will be out until Aug. 4. So I won't have a decision until next week. :-(

Any news on the UK prices yet?

I am just more than happy to help them out. DVDO is here at AVS and one of my new goals is to support the companies that participate here...

How did you get 1 day service from Rochester NY?
post #372 of 7061
I payed for it... I will be more than happy to work this entire weekend on it. I am going on my one and only vacation of 2008 late next week so it is perfect timing...

Good move:
post #374 of 7061
I am taking this seriously. I have my dispalys arranged and ready. I have a series of my own tests I will do with each one of them. I plan to work all weekend with the Edge... Of course I will NOT report my findings here (only to them)...
post #375 of 7061
Good luck, Joe. I am still waiting on my shipping info from Jason but expect to receive it soon.
post #376 of 7061
It should go by best-looking which would make me first.
post #377 of 7061
Good one Gary J! I would at least come in third or fourth here...
post #378 of 7061
OK, I've searched what I thought would be relevant threads but can't find a definitive answer, so I'll just ask here:

Was the treatment of 240p video (gaming) ever sorted out on the vp50, and by extension, will it be functioning in the EDGE? If not right now...will it ever?

Thanks!

I'm just busting your chops. Did I read a few pages back that there would be a closed forum for Beta participants to share experiences? That would certainly be quite useful.

Don't testing agreements usually state something about not publicly talking about the product testing?

I hope all the testers hurry up with the testing so they can quickly offer the EDGE for sale to us consumers.

A related question: When a output is selected, does one select a resolution (e.g. 1080p) or resolution and frequency (e.g. 1080p24)?

Edit: What would happen with a European PS3 which can output 576p50 (for DVD), 1080p24 (for Blu-Ray), and 1080p60 (for games)?

What if the display can accomodate both a 1080p60 and a 1080p24 signal?

For example, if someone has a Kuro that can refresh at either 60hz or 72hz, can the user tell the EDGE that if film is detected, then output 1080p24 otherwise output 1080p60?

An example would be changing the channel from a CBS NFL game to an NBC Law and Order episode. Would I manually have to go into the EDGE and select 1080p24?

Output Formats on EDGE combine both resolution and framerate. For example: 1080p-60 is 1920 x 1080 @ 60Hz progressive. If you would like to change the Output Format between 1080p-60 and 1080p-24, you can do this by navigating the OSD or via discrete IR codes. Once a selection is made all input signals will be converted to the chosen Output Format.

Im guessing if we havent received tracking numbers it means our units havent shipped yet. Im in NJ so if it shipped today I have a shot of it being delivered tomorrow.
post #384 of 7061
Yes Aaron- which is why I won't be revealing any of my results here...
post #385 of 7061
What´s the status on the European batch?

So if I watch a Blu-Ray movie on my PS3 one evening @1080p24, and my (young) kid pops in a PAL DVD the following day, he's going to be watching it at 1080p24? This isn't very family friendly.

This is a different situation than what Josh responded to, because in your situation you're changing the input format. If I understand this correctly (and it is like with the VP's), it will be like this: The EDGE has memories for output mode based on input mode (right, Josh?) So, you will set it up to output 1080P/24 when the input is 1080P/24, and 1080P/60 when the input is 480i/p, 720P/60, 1080i/60 or 1080P/60, and 1080P/50 output for 576i/p, 720P/50, 1080i/50 and 1080P/50. What it will NOT do is auto-detect a 24P sequence within a 60 Hz source, and change the output automatically, for players without 24P output, for this you will need to manually change the output to 1080P/24 (it is not practical to have on-the-fly output changes). For your situation, the output format will follow the input format, so when you put in a BD, the EDGE will output 1080P/24, when you put in a PAL DVD, it will output 1080P/50.

If this is how it works, I have no complaints whatsoever.

You're right that Josh was responding (again, although I think it was Dale who answered the same question earlier in the thread) to a question around output frequency based on cadence, but Josh's reply doesn't say whether the EDGE has per-input memories like the VPs and rather suggests that even if it does, that it doesn't store an output format for each. I guess I'll find out when my beta unit arrives

Since I've got a pronto, I don't really care, I'd just include the discrete in a "Game" or "DVD" or "BluRay" button but I do think that not many non-technical family members will understand why they have to change output format ("whatever that is") based on content.

Having said ALL that, the popcorn hour still seems to be massively popular in spite of the fact it has a single output res for all content.
