I have read some interesting news on the French HT forum (link below):
Apparently there will be some kind of upgrade program
for the Vantage HD1 to allow 1080p24.
Unfortunately this upgrade will not be free and the Vantage will have to be returned to the factory.
I think and I'm guessing/hoping here that after the upgrade the Vantage will be turned into a full spec Vantage HD2 without the fan.
The outside case will be maintained.
The SDI and the HDMI add on cards will still work on the HD2 and upgraded HD1 (I'm not guessing here, I asked)
Price for this upgrade is not yet known (most likely by the end of the month), but with shipping both ways and all........
I don't know exactly what they will change at the factory but it appears clear that the HD1 will not be able to output 1080p24 without some kind of hardware mod.
Firmware upgrade alone will not be enough.http://www.homecinema-fr.com/forum/v...asc&start=1080
