I'm looking at a briteview scaler or the DVDO iscan pro. I like the dvi on the briteview, but trust the iscan name more.


Does anyone have any opinions on the quality of these two products? I'm mainly interested in cleaning up my TIVO image, and a bonus is dvd improvement.


I'm using a sanyo z2 on a 106" screen. I may still use my onkyo 696 for vid switching because I need more inputs than either of those models.


Thanks for the help.

Z2 supports 720p (native resolution) so DVDO 480p can't match Briteview's 720p or 1080i on component output. DVDO will beat Briteview in 480p but why bother as 720p or 1080i will be soooo much better even when not using DVI. Briteview's DVI only supports computer resolutions of 640X480, 800X600, 1024X768, or 1280X1024. I don't think Briteview's DVI supports 720p. Ask BillChiu to be clearer. If you want DVI 720p then get a scaling DVD player like Bravo D1/D2 ($200-250), Momitsu v880 ($280), Denon 5900 ($2K) or CS-HD. Lumagen Vision does not support DVI but has great component and VGA.


For your purpose, I would say Briteview is better but don't spend extra for DVI as it can't output native resolution of your PJ on DVI (only component). Might as well buy the $100-cheaper non-DVI version. Also check out the $135 shipped Smedia 3dpro TV tuning/scaling box at Newegg. It uses the same (actually newer and better Trident DPTV 3DPro instead of the older Zinwell Briteview's Trident DPTV 3D).
