You know you want to
I know I do and so does the wife
This is all getting a bit Finbar Saunder's, if my VIZ reading days serves me well
I also said mmmh not now....
Just got time last night to sort the sound inputs out for my Radiance XD
It now gives me 2 extra optical inputs(so i have 4 in total)
Using one for my tosh hp-35 hd and the other one for xbox 360
Must say the new menu's on the Radiance are so much more easier to use than the hdq
any piccies of the Radience front & back?
I would not want to be accused of tormenting you
I don't see it as tormenting, I see it as bargaining power
Like your style Kenny
why not click on this link
or am i missing something here
I think he's after a picture from me off how well it looks sat next to an flr
HDMI 1 - Sky HD
HDMI 2 - HD-DVD
HDMI 3 - Apple TV
HDMI 4 - SACD / DVD-A / DVD-V
HDMI 5 - PS3
HDMI 6 - X-Box 360
Input 7 - FLR
Input 8 - Wii
Input 11 - AV32R OSD
And still 7 empty inputs
I was hoping you would point that out....
It is a bind having all those inputs, just told the wife i have to buy a region a blu ray player
waste not, want not as my mum always says....
It's just a shame the wife doesnt see it that way!
she does with clothes, handbags, three holidays a year .....
But we love em!
The audiolab 8000AP & X7 are reviewed in this month's WHF and it didn't come out to well.
They were scathing on the lack of on-board HD sound processing and only having 2 in/1 out HDMI's
More worryingly was the fact they couldn't get it to handle a 1080p/24 signal into their Pioneer display
Scratch this off the list off replacements if the tag (heaven forbid) calls it a day
Good news on the audiolab 8000AP
"The 8000AP, shares no common design elements with the previous 8000AV model and as such we have been able to embrace the new high-resolution audio possible from blu-ray and HD-DVD fully. Most blu-ray discs, already contain a completely uncompressed multi-channel LPCM data stream. With HD-DVD it is mandatory to unzip the lossless data back into its raw LPCM form - and indeed with blu-ray the newer players also unzip this data in the player - indeed, since Blu-ray profile 1.1 has been introduced, it is essential that the unzipping of the data happens in the player if the features of 1.1 are to be fully utilised.
Because of the modular design of the 8000AP, the HDMI board kept completely separate, future generations of HDMI can be implemented easily."
"A firmware update is now available which allows 24fps to pass with all current screens and solves a particular handshake issue with the latest Pioneer sets. Anyone who wants to upgrade to the latest firmware, please contact our helpdesk by e-mail or by calling 01480 452561"
thanks to Roversd1
Is RoverSD1 back working for IAG? If so that is good news for him I am sure.
not as far as I am aware GMG
with Paramount now going Blu Ray and Microsoft ending production of their HD DVD drive it seems like I've backed another dodo
If you really want a Toshiba HD DVD player now is the time to buy with Amazon selling the EP30 at £78 and the EP 35 for £140, with two free discs each
Pity BD won out as the format is region coded and AFAIK they don't do combo discs with a DVD layer on one side
My new name will be Kenny The Jinx
i would opt for an ep10 as it is the cheapest way to look at rc1 dvds judderfree from a standalone player for the first time. this only applies if you have a 24p capable monitor device.
this is possible because the ep10 and the xe1 can be made codefree via firmware, but this is not possible with the ep30 and ep35.
just a thought
very very few people know about that fact but it is absolutely sensational:
this way its possible for the first time in history to watch rc1 dvds JUDDERFREE from a standalone (no expensive scaler necessary). and for very reasonable money, too
