i mean doesn't 1.14 provide pass-through in a way that solves your issue or did i miss something?
Sorry, I should have been clearer. 1080P pass-through has never worked for "me" on any firmware release and many suggestions from senior members here.
I "stepped-up" to the VP30 + add-on card as "I would never need to buy anything else-firmware upgrades would allow constant features and updates". And it does do nice things for SD content and lower end feeds. But I have never been able to improve 1080i content, and 1080P gives me either "no signal" blinking lights (or auto-changing to a higher priority input), or a solid blue or solid black screen.
Plus, it stunk seeing the VP50 come out (especially since my VP30 would be "all I would ever need"- so why did his VP50 appear literally weeks after my purchase?), with firmware updates galore, as my VP30 sat- unhooked- because I couldn't change a channel on my cable box without losing all sound until I completely removed power from the VP30, performing a total reboot.
I will admit that there have been times when the folks at DVDO (especially the "Josh" poster) have stepped up. When my power supply failed after a few months, a post here got me a PM and a new power supply overnighted- that's service.
I also received a PM offering a beta version of the new firmware when I posted about having to completely unhook my VP30 as we could not change channels on the cable box (which I partially blame HDCP and the failure of many manufacturers to adhere to standards, especially regarding the handshake-hence why not everyone saw the problem).
But overall, this unit isn't doing what I thought it would do, what I was sold on it doing, and seeing EDGE units (and yes, less powerful in some aspects than the VP30, but I am not running a public theater) for $500 on ads here, Ebay, basically all over- well, it makes me want to puke as the resale value on my VP30 went down quicker than an Airbus in a windstorm (sorry, too soon?) and I may take a loss selling my 2k+ investment to buy a discounted EDGE.
