This forum is better at responding quest than the htpc forum. Im considering getting the MP-1 mod done, purchased a Radeon 9700 to have the mod done to it, I've spoken with Mike Parker on several occasions and he is the nicest most helpful person anyone will ever meet, but there are questions which only users of the mod can answer. Please bear with me, this hobby is very expensive and Im just being cautious about my purchases. Some say that the mod just boots the signal like the extron box so that longer run cables can be used. That it does nothing else for pic quality. Others say that it adds sharpness and clarity to the pic,which is something the extron box can't do. Would anyone be so kind as to post or know where I can see before and after screenshoots of this mod? My system is highly similar to Rennfast's system, as far as I know he isn't using the MP-1 mod and the pics are out of this world. I've upgraded from a Sony 1270 to the Marquee 8000 series and I must admit the difference is of night and day, Like anyone just like to get the best pic possible. Going to Theatertek was also one of the greatest upgrades ever, combining that with FFDSHOW took it one level up, the only problem with ffdshow is that its post processing, after the pic is displayed, in other words its software processing, Mike says his mod will enhance the pic the same way but by hardware before the pic is displayed. I must say that with ffdshow post processing is evident it can be seen, at lest I can see it. Will the MP-1 mod do these things? Thats what I like to find out please.
