In the meantime, the only other people who have gotten it to work were using a DVI blade but, even they were using an HD+ so, I don't know if it will work with a VP-30.
I might be able to get my hands on a DVI blade if you want to test it out, I would love to help you out with it if you like. Contact me and lets try and get it to work. As I stated, mine is going back so I cannot try it but, if you get it to work I will go out and buy it again.
Sorry, can't help you as I have neither the VP30 or the 8UK. As I stated earlier and in my message to Panasonic, I have an NEC 61XM2 and a Lumagen VisionPro HDP. Without official NR support, I will never purchase a Panasonic as my main display for use with a VP.
Between this and your other thread, I have to say this is the display mfg. responsibility to provide the timing info. Again, I do not understand Panasonic's position on this. This is not a major trade secret, but a major design flaw!
FYI, my NEC has a NR resolution of 1365 x 768; however, due to the design at the time of release NR is actually achieved at 1360 x 768 based upon the standard VESA timing. Hardware and software limitations force the use of a timing divisible by 8. In the newer NEC's, hardware and software have been updated and they do in fact support 1365 x 768; however, it is not documented in their manual or model info sheet, but if you contact them they are happy to provide the timings.
Panasonic's refusal to provide the info necessary in inexcusable. Sure there is a possibility there is something on the DVDO side also related to software or a timing issue with a chip etc. as tolerances in different production runs do vary, but without having official timing info from Panasonic, there is no baseline to establish where the problem is.
Bottom line, the burden is on Panasonic to provide the info. Keep calling Panasonic until you get an answer. If you can not get an answer or this remains unsupported consider another display if you have to have NR support.
Here's a test that should at least confirm if NR can be achieved on a 8UK with the HDMI blade. You must have a fairly new Laptop with an ATI or nVidia Display Card and DVI output. With the laptop off hook it up DVI to HDMI; turn the 8UK on and set it to the proper input; turn on and boot the laptop; If the HDMI card is outputting the proper EDID info the Graphics Card will autimatically sync to the optimal resolution. If you boot successfully and it is full screen, check your display properties to see what resolution is being output. If it is 1360 x 768 or 1366 x 768 it accepts NR. At that point, someone should be able to read the timings via powerstrip or monifo or similar.
