Does anyone know or has heard, if Plus Piano projecter is going to be coming out with a new projecter that supports HDTV??


I know the HE-3100 does not support HDTV.


Please help. I like the Piano but the HDTV thing really concerns me.

Hi,

these are still only rumors. PLUS themselves are hesitant to confirm this. However, you can feed an HDTV signal into a Piano by using an HTPC equipped with an HDTV card and a DVI-D graphics card.

Hi,

this is the only thing that can be confirmed, i.e. the price will be significantly higher than the Piano, meaning in the 6k neighborhood

scottrob02,


there is no confirmation that there will be a new projector this early let alone actual specifications or the like. The Piano is still a very nice projector for the budget oriented home cinema fan. You don't really need a new one yet ;)

Haven't bought one yet. Still doing construction on basement. Just wondering if I should wait on a new Piano or go buy the HE-3100. My luck I would buy it and soon after they will come out with a new one.


:D

This post came full circle; the only way you can answer your question is to determine whether HDTV is important to you. You implied it was; the Piano will not do it (it won't even take the signal--I don't consider the DVI port an option). I've seen this projector: it's good with DVD's (has an excellent scaler), but just isn't very bright.

I heard something along those lines as well, but without the guesstimate on the price.


I have a hunch that it's nothing more than a module that will accept RGBHV or component and convert it to DVI-D or something similar. I cannot imagine them changing out the guts.
