Sorry, I forgot to reply to your PM.
No I've not although it has received good reviews for you and others. His occupied a weird space in my mind. It was not just a DVI transcoder, but an SDI and DVI scaler and transcoder.
But it was priced too high for what it did in my mind.
You need a switch to use his with more than one DVI source. And for component sources (for instance a JVC 30K), you needed a seperate transcoder for that and then either a second input on the PJ or another switch after his box (a DVI switch before his box and a RGBHV switch after his and a component transcoder--ugh!)! If using a barco then you've only got one good input, so switching in the PJ is not an option as it might be with other PJs.
If his were closer to $600 or so, I probably would have seriously considered it back in the day. But, now that over 70% of what I watch is HD and Kim's does a good job with that, and upconverting DVD players have scaling as good as his (many using the same or newer version of the chip he uses) I just don't see a play for it.
I either want every single task relagated to a seperate components for maximum configurablity or I want an all in one solution. His was in the middle. A "some in one" solution.
My two cents.
