For example, I don't use HDMI yet, so I wouldn't care about this feature yet, but I will in the future. When I want the card, the 4 inputs HDMI card would be available by then, so I could just get that one and have avoided wasting money on the 2 input one.
I also don't have the need for iLink yet, a fourth component input, or multichannel input, but I would like having the option to purchase them if I bought equipment that used them.
It would also be an easier sell with the wife if it were cheaper and I could upgrade/add the cards over time.
Any idea if there are ever any plans to do this?
I like your ideas. Considering that the unit is so new still, I really can't see why, in the future, a lower price and card options wouldn't become reality over time.
