I have a brother-in-law who's made up his mind he wants a 32" 4:3 direct view set that's HDTV ready. Is anyone making a set that fits that description with a DVI input? He's not likely to upgrade for many more years to come, so I wanted him to get as much future proofing as possible. I checked Toshiba, but I didn't see the DVI input on their Cinema series 32". I was surprised.


Thanks

Don't be surprised the DVI is used usally with professionals. In our case there has to be a settlement in HDCP copy protection

Then the mfrs will get the plug that is needed for DVI HDCP if it passes.



Right now there are several mod that loop pass the digital to analog, to stay in the digital domain DVD players. I have read that a high end set of cables and major brand DVD will give you just as good as DVD, for we have the line doublers and component connection as consumers.:)

Too bad the Sony DVIs don't work with a HTPC with a DVI-out video card (like the ATI Radeon 8500 All-in-Wonder DV)

I don't believe that this is a true statement. There have been numerous posts saying that Radeon cardws work with the Sony DVI ports.


Here are some references:

I was initially planning to buy a KV-32HS500, but am beginning to lean towards the HV600 because of the better line doubler. I plan to hook this set to my AIW Radeon 7500 using a DVI-D Dual Link cable.
