As someone who was getting very excited about this DLP projector, somebody recently posted about the unit not having a DVI input? Please inform me about the importance of this. Will it hamper the ability to receive future HD signals? Also, what are other cons of this unit? I'm pretty familiar with the pros. Thanks!

Howdy,


Just do a search (using the search engine link) and you'll come up with a bunch of thread that have already discussed the issue in depth. I typed in the key words "sharp 9000 dvi" and here's what I got:

Read the first three and I think all your questions will be answered...or at least you'll find out what everybody else knows.

saw a remark that the Tag processor would have dvi in and out; how would this work with the encryption loaded on the signal? would the Tag only bypass the HD encrypted material; i don't imagine they could do any processing to the digital signal if it is bearing the encryption.


From what i have read, it seems that the only point where de-encryption can occur is in the display device, correct?


last question: if a display has a dvi input does that mean it can also do de-encryption, or will it require some sort of upgraded card when the encryption mess gets implemented?

What you're looking for is a DVI/HDCP input. If it's just DVI, it won't work with HDCP-protected stuff. To my knowledge, there is exactly one DVI/HDCP-equipped display device on the market -- the JVC D'Ahlia rear-projector. There haven't been announcements of any others, but that may not mean that they're not in the works. CES in January should be interesting.


Interestingly, I'm the guy who raised this issue, and I've decided to to ahead and get the projector, on the theory that most HD content won't be encrypted this way for a few years at least, and my DVD's will always work. If lots of encrypted broadcast content shows up, and/or pre-recorded media, then I'll pester Sharp for a projector upgrade or sell the unit to somebody and buy a new one when such is available.
