Whoa - I was about to buy an M8000 and I noticed that its minimum scan rate is 30 khz? I will not have my HTPC built for a while, so it it true that I can't run it directly off my DVD? Someone say It aint so. I will accept lies too.

Thanks

I run my Panasonic DVD player to my M8000 through a line doubler without a problem. I've never tried running it directly to the M8000 bypassing the line doubler...


Hope this helps...

Colin,


What outputs were you going to use from your DVD player? S-VHS or Component. If Component, is it interlaced or progressive?


If equipped with the NTSC decoder, the M8000 will except S-VHS or Composite video, otherwise it only accepts RGBHV input.


The RGBHV input will accept output from line doublers, scalers to HTPC's and HDTV for a much more pleasing picture than just the NTSC input.


Batman, -You got that baby tweaked yet?

Guys!


The M8000 was introduced by Electrohome in the fall of 1992; only the earliest units had the 30khz floor for h scan. Electrohome engineers had intended to offer a video card with a doubler built in, but it never saw production; a redesigned horizontal section was introduced soon after, with 15-130khz range. Some early units may have been upgraded with this newer board.

Mark - It is a lowly interlaced DVD player.


Tim - Do you have any specifics as to what date they all started handling NTSC. Or at which Serial Number it changed.


Thanks all. I'm going to be posting a new request for help for choosing a new PJ so if you have time please take a look and give me any ideas.

Colin
