no but if you call their customer service from their website. optomausa.com and go to the rptv site. they will give you a number to the nearest optoma retailer. mine was one state away. they are quite helpful and eager to satisfy i think.
I've starting looking at the new Optoma RD-65 vs. the Samsung HLN61yW. I read one one of the threads that the DVI input on the Optoma may not support HDCP. Does any one know anything about this? I'm also trying to find out more information in general about the Optoma. does anyone have any info on this display? I'm going to call there customer service tomorrow and will post any information I can.
I guess I'm not understand what you are talking about. I tried to search on the history of Optoma's RPTV, but nothing as come up. If you could point me to the information that would be great.
I talk with Optoma's technical support yesterday and they stated that the DVI connect on the RD-65 will support HDCP in the future. Alan, I know you stated that one of the Optoma employees told you that we're going to support it, so I'm a little confused. Has anyone else heard anything about this?
Kody: They announced these sets what seems like a lifetime ago. If you use the Slowest Search option on the search, you'll find the original thread.
As for HDCP, I, too, was told by an Optoma rep that HDCP is unncessary, irrelevant, won't be included. Like Panasonic, with their DLP, someone at Optoma realized that such a bogus line won't work in the marketplace. So they must be fixing it before release, I suppose. Given how late this set it, that's a good thing.
Here's some info on the Optoma RD50 and RD65. Quote: " Both include DVI but no HDCP, though Optima says it will provide an upgrade path later this year for people who purchase early units." No date or price is listed for the HDCP upgrade. Source: The Perfect Vision - May/June 2003 - page 20. Dick
Interesting --- I requested a contact via the Optoma website to determine the closest dealer to me ----- 3 weeks later, no response at all. Their custoemr service seems t be getting off to a great start
