Does anyone know if this terminal board is coming at all?

I'm sure there's a lot of people who want to know. I'm eagerly waiting to hook up a PS3 to this and holding off ISF calibration till I get this board.


Please post updates and specifications.

I have the TH-65PF9UK with dishnetwork VP211 box and PS3 blu-ray. I want to have separate inputs for the two so they will have their own calibration settings. Also I was hoping for HDMI 1.3 but if that's not gonna happen then I'll probably get another DVI blade. I called VA and they said that they are expecting the 1080p DVI boards on February.

Since your dishnetwork VP2 doesn't have the ability to output 1080p, you might want consider the current 8 series 1080i HDMI board instead of a second 9 series DVI board. STBs can be notoriously poor at converting from YCbCr to RGB. The HDMI board may (depending on the capabilities of your box) allow you to defer the colorspace transform to the display instead. Of course, if you box does a decent job in the conversion (or doesn't have the ability to output YCbCr) then its a moot point.


Like bwclark says above, it looks like a 1080p-capable HDMI board will have to wait until at least the 10th generation (which means it is almost certain to not work in a 9th generation display - although there's always a chance).

I forgot to mention one thing. The satellite box is connected to the HD Leeza video processor with output set to 1080p60. I can actually make separate adjustments in the processor. I'm thinking of selling the processor and a Panasonic RP-82 with SDI output but still undecided. After watching blu-ray, I don't like watching DVDs anymore and HDTV broadcasts are not as clear as blu-ray.
