Did not have the chance to play around with the DVD player since they do not have any display unit - all were still boxed up (cant' speak the local language so didn't ask). My actual concern was more on the player not being able to play dvds other than R2. Maybe someone from Japan can answer this.

Surprise reply:


Regarding my email to I-O Data: I received a reply from Mr. Mitsuo Jack Akita at the I-O office in Japan:


"Thank you for e-mail.

Now, actually, we just started to release it USA's Japanese people.

Sorry, English version's not yet. You can see the spec on our web site.

http://www.iodata.com/usa/products/p...Id=AVLP1%2FDVD


The Spec sheet says it has DVI. The price is $299. Clicking on "Buy Now" results in a not in stock but allow 10 additional days for delivery.


I just bought a Momitsu!! This is more but has some wired/wireless features that to me would certainly make it worth the price. It has the same Sigma Designs chip with additional features implementation.


Anybody want to be an initial buyer and make a report?


I will do some additional research and add info as I find it.

I had seen this player during a tour to Tokyo last month. I'd rather wait for momitsu V880N rather than this player with several reasons:


1. I coud not be sure whether it could be region or macrovision free.

2. The software was in Japanese.

3. From previous experiences with momitsu v880, I though it might have some firmware problems whcih need further upgrade.

4.It coud not have DVI output with its dvd player itself. Instead, it could have ouput from DVI by reading your PC's dvd-rom or hard disc files.(This had been stated in the above links ,also confirmed by other user's report.)

Doing a full translation would take up too much of my time but its a network media player that is WMV 9 compatible, outputs at 1280 x 720 resolution and can display and record HD content (TV programs etc) on your hard drive...


Correction, ah the joys of translation, it can display any media Hi-Def or otherwise that is saved onto a hard drive on your TV.


It also had software, DigitalVideo3D v1.5HD for creating your own HD content.

If someone wants to "donate" one of these puppies, I can easily play around with it. One thing that the Japanese press release mentions is that it can play DVDs/files that lack authoring.


A D4 connector is useless in the States but maybe they will revamp if they launch for US?

i got the exact same email today-


"Thank you for the e-mail.

We had not released English news, but you are so quick!


OK, to be honest with you, the English version is coming on Octber.

Perhaps we may annouce it next month. English version may have some

different spec. I'll let you know after that.


Just in case, here is a English news letter:
http://www.iodata.com/usa/news/relea...25&ts=4&tsc=21


Thank you."

Ok, help me out guys.


The spec of the new AVLP2/DVDG player says


DVI-I Out (HDCP no support)


Does that mean I can't hook it up to my Sony KV-34XBR800 and play back DVD thru that connector?
