That can't work in this scenario, since EDGE has to output at a fixed resolution... so will always be doing scaling to one resolution or the other.


As I've said before, EDGE does a grand job interlacing the output from the HDP... which was no slouch in the first place. ARTEFACT FREE!

Just received my DVDO Edge and looking forward to trying it out later today. A quick question though: When (firmware/software) updates are available is it a lengthy process to upgrade it like the VP50 (witch I also own).. Hate having to spend like 20-30minutes everytime a fix is released ;-)

Updating takes about 15 seconds at most. You plug in the USB cable, hold down the service button at the back, it gets recognised as an external drive on your computer, you replace the .abt file on EDGE with the new one, disconnect the USB device, unplug and power cycle EDGE... and you're done.

Thanks eiren :)


I'll feel a lot safer upgrading the unit now. On my old VP50 I sorta got frightened that something could go wrong duing the loooong upgrade process.

iMBest was banned from the Beta forum. Anything he posts needs to be read with caution. He may just have an axe to grind. Of course you never know, maybe after being banned he still decided to support DVDO and actually try a retail version... I wouldn't though...

Does this work with a USB flash drive connected to the EDGE?

My computer is not located physically close to the EDGE location.

It would be REALLY convenient if the EDGE just sucked in the file from the flash drive.


Or did you mean that the EDGE is recognized by the computer as an external drive, and you have to move the file from the computer to the EDGE?

Extinct - heck no. I have 4 in captivity right now...which is also why I'm not going to sweat a few burned out phospors.
I have a pair of 9 inchers I haven't bothered to hang yet - when my trusty Runco dies, I'll just go to the next in line.

Interesting note - I did a side by side comparison of the latest Pioneer (PDP6020FD) and a old CRT TV I still had. The Pioneer actually has better black levels. Now if that DVDO Edge would just arrive! Does anyone know if they sold out? A lot of of authorized dealers are now showing them as back-ordered versus out of stock. I hope this does not become a really long wait........

Not sure who you are, but you seem to just want to post rubbish to stir up trouble....like earlier when you got kicked from Beta Forum.


If you had an EDGE you would know the unit works at 240v without the need for a transformer.


I used my EDGE constantly in the UK for around 2 months now without a single power issue.

Thanks for the follow-up, Russ. I knew I could count on a fellow beta tester to walk through the door that I left open.
