    That may have been the case in the past, but there is now an absurd bit of EC legislation that says any display device with a DVI input gets a 14% tariff put on it. But then are they going to open the box and check? It's clearly unworkable, but watch out, you wouldn't want to be taken by surprise.

    If it is best not to advertise the fact that the projector has a DVI input, does nayone know what % duty is there on projectors that don't?

    Thanks
