Byte, thanks, that turned out worse than I would have thought, I have seen some players SDI modified vs the native HDMI and the difference wasn't anything as major as this comparison, it all depends on the player and many have always contested that Oppo outputs are fairly noisy and edgy, I would agree with this 100%, whats good (actually probably best in the world) is the mpeg decoder thus the SDI output is golden


I am proud to say I use the VP50


thanks again Byte

Thanks Gary...


If you ever get the chance to try a lesser processor, I'd love to hear how the 981HD SDI quality holds up.


I assume the 981HD SDI signal might have a touch more ringing on the vertical lines thru something like an Iscan.

Byte SDI performance has been equal on everything I have used from DVDO over the years, from the HD to the VP30 to the VP50, not to say that image quality hasn't changed due to deinterlacing etc. etc. but I haven't seen any more ringing or problems like that


all previous and current DVDO models have used the same identical SDI module which inputs the data in a identical way for them all


SDI is a knockout on a HD, VP30 or VP50, or any Lumagen or Crystalio .....



thanks Byte

I've been using a HTPC with RGB video outputs for the last 3+ years, and am looking at a stand-alone DVD player to drive my JVC SX21 D-ILA.


How would this player compare ?


Would I need a scaler ?


TIA,

:) neil

Neil, I think you would be very pleasantly surprised dude, I mean big time



you would need a scaler, or you could go the same HTPC route with a SDI capture card and use Dscaler, we offer all this stuff on our webpage, scalers, the capture card, packages etc.

thanks very much for your interest, it is much appreciated

Hi Gary,


I'm a novice, trying to decide if I should buy the DV-981HD as an addition to the PS3.


Would I see a meaningful uptick?


Is the 1080P playback all that? I see you dudes are modding the thing.


Would the DV-981HD at 1080P impress over the 480P capability of the PS3?


Thanks Man.

Cocteau, the Oppo 981 when feed via SDI to a home theater scaler would murder the PS3 on SD DVD playback, you would need a scaler though to implement the SDI output


the standard Oppo 981 will output 1080p, the SDI modified Oppo in this PB sends a untouched digital signal via SDI at 480i


thanks

That's too bad that you didn't get close to the 30 count. But it's understandable, b/c most people think that for $600, they'd be better off getting a good HD-DVD or Blu-ray player (PS3). Perhaps you can focus on modding one (or both) of those types of players.

The "believers" already have their SDI players and are awaiting HD-SDI. Although I am tempted by the nice black unit.

I agree, one reason I think we didn't hit the 30 mark was that I have already supplied everyone here with a SDI player



I have big things prepared for HD-SDI, so stay tuned
