I was going to mention the fact that the Pio also does 1080p24, but I guess that doesn't really matter since you are using the Crystalio anyway. Also, I don't remember, does the Ruby accept a 1080p24 signal?
Anyway, it would certainly seem that the 480i over hdmi to the crystalio would be an advantage for SD dvd's, and could make the Pioneer a more comprehensive solution (SD and HD).
BTW, I am also considering another product that has Gennum processing inside, and also does audio processing! ;)
