Any reason they haven't provided 3:3 pulldown (72Hz) in this new model? Pio's plasmas have had this (advanced purecinema) since the Fall of 2003. I would have thought HDMI could handle 72 Hz video data without any problems.

I found this on a french canadian audio/video forum:
-The best feature IMHO is the new "Direct Stream" video. It's a pure untouch unprocessed 480i signal over HDMI. No filters, no treatment.
Perfect for a scaler like the IScan HD+, Lumagen, Dragonfly or Gennum VXP. This new Elite will be REALLY popular with those scalers!
-The MPEG decoder is from Pioneer and derived from Broadcast VQ9 and supposed to be CUE free.
-HDMI 1.1, 10 bits.
-Dedicated power supply for the audio section.
Mine is already on order A true digital transport finally.
