I dont think any models currently exist, but are any of the up coming DVD recorders ('plus' camp or other) supposed to be sporting a DVI connection?


I've recently got a plasma screen, and I see many plasma owners are using DVD players that have DVI connections and are getting stunning results.


The one adavantage with DVI is the video stays in the digital domain, instead of having the player converting the DVD's digital video back to analog, only to have the plasma attempt to (again) convert it back to digital. Sounds like solid reasoning to me.


I'm in the market for a DVD recorder some time over the next few months, and would like to pick one up that can output via DVI.

I asked the same thing a while back. I couldn't find any currently in production or any information about ones being planned. I'm sure someone (probably a company like Apex or V, Inc.) will eventually crank one out, but when is anyone's guess.

Apple computers (most with 4X Superdrives to play and record DVDs) have DVI ports, and if you're really into HD, etc., Final Cut Pro supports most formats, including HD.


Also, the new G5 machines have S/PDIF (SONY / PHILIPS DIGITAL INTERFACE) OPTICAL audio input and output, so if you want to play / edit / record totally in digital, it might be worth a look, or as a jumping off point to related vendors.

Many PCs today have DVI output and S/PDIF (optical or coax). Nothing special, just Macs playing catch up :D Don't forget the ******* ADC connector for those people too confused with all those cables.
