Are we likely to ever see the highest end Faroudja with SDI input? I am looking for something that will give me the best quality now (I have sdi modded rp56) as well as in the future with HD dvd in the next few years. I am not convinced that the Rock + would be significantly better in terms of picture quality, if any better at all, to my sdi silk htpc and rp56.... but I think the faroudja, if it had sdi, would be an improvement......


any comments??


thanks

hifiaudio2,


My suggestion is to try the Rock+ SDI and see for yourself. TAW has a 14 day return policy, so if you're not satisfied just return it and try something else. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the quality you'll get and you may change your opinion.


Good luck in your search for a processor, it's fun isn't it:)!!!

I doubt that the product will be a licensed Faroujda product. I don't think Faroujda allows third party scalers to carry their deinterlacing.

Well, if Vigatec has stockpiled enough FLI2200s and FLI2220s for their production runs, I doubt there's much Faroudja/Genesis can do to stop the release of this product. Even Genesis has prelimarily announced an I.C. using DCDi that also scales. I bet they will use it in more places than just Faroudja boxes...

dahester,


Come on - you're not seriously suggesting that Vigatec will go head to head with Sage...


They have to do this legally - or Sage would have blown them out of the water with lawyers faster than you can say Fah-Rude-Dja...

Uwe,


Not that I'm against it. I hope you can pull it off one way or another.

The SAGE chips are a licensed product. They are under NDA - I had to sign one under our company name and references just to get a datasheet. I would imagine actual sales carry a contract that outlines the authorized use of the part and the trademark.

Query: if the new Dune outputs only 60hz, how will it work with plasmas like the Pio that have trouble with 60hz vs. 72?


Cheers
