Can any else confirm that?
As for what else is important, obvioulsy good sound, support of all the multichannel formats, THX cert is a plus, room auto-setup is a plus.
Dont forget that the yammi will display the OSD over HDMI, but the JVC line will not.
I was also under the impression that the Faroudja was only to de-interlace 480i, which is pretty much neccessary because alot of displays will not accept 480i over HDMI.
Also dont forget that the Yammi has 3 component inputs, where the JVC only has two (which if you use both HDMI you can only use 1 of)
Personnaly I am still torn between the two of theese, but the Yammi definitely has the features that make it worth the extra money over the 702.
