    Just got my DV88 Plus upgraded with the extra Silicon Image SiI504 progressive board, and I have a couple questions.

    Firmware vLT76, Software 4.18.0. Using NTSC component video.

    1. In Setup, do I set NTSC Delay to 60ms as suggested for the DV27 and DV88 with the PS upgrade? I assume so and it's what I've done, but just wanted to make sure.

    2. In Setup, Video 2/4 the Progressive item is now "Not Applicable." Is this because I have my cables only connected to the 504 board? Or does it mean the standard component output is always interlaced now?

    3. I assume I can now connect a composite, s-vid, or second component cable for simultaneous interlaced output. Is this correct?

    4. Is 4.18.0 the latest SW version? If not, what's in the newer versions?

    Thanks...

    1)
    Yes

    2)
    The standard component output is interlaced only now. The SI board takes its digital video from the MPEG board which obviously has to be interlaced in order for the SI board to do its stuff!
    So the V5 deinterlacer is bypassed to ensure that only interlaced video signals are available from the main board.

    3)
    Yes

    4)
    Yes, AFAIK

    Thanks for the answers. It's as I thought.

    Picture quality is great. Watched sections of LOTR and it looked awesome.
