I have a Replay 5160...

and an external processor (DVDO iScan Ultra) which I want to use for (a) de-interlacing, and (b) as a video switching hub.


Problem is that the iScan only accepts interlaced inputs, and the Replay's component connection is progressive.


The Iscan has a MUCH better de-interlacer (Sil-504 chip) than the Replay.

I tried using S-video into the iScan, but it looks no better than composite. I want to use the component connectors if possible.


Is there any way to hack a 5000 series so that the component output delivers an INTERLACED (480i) signal?


Thanks,

Pat

nope, there's been a bunch of talk about it, but nope.


I was thinking of modifying the hardware settings, but that's a lot of work and I don't even know when register on the TL-851 is used for the output settings, after that it's just a question of if the rest of the hardware can really handle the 480i component out. From what I know about the TL chips this chip should be able to handle 480i. After that there's the filtering that will need to be disabled so you don't get the crappy deinterlacing filters applied to you interlaced output.
