    Does anyone know who in the UK offers a DVI output as an aftermarket upgrade to a DVD player?

    My DVD player is a Denon 2800.

    Thanks - Paul

    I recall reading a couple of months back about a company that were supplying a modified plasma screen with a DVI input and they could modify a sky digibox or DVD player to add the necessary output.

    At the moment I can't recall the company name, think it may have been something like "visionery" or something similar.

    I'll see if I can dig out the back issue (was there a group test of plasmas in HCC several months back?) for a more definitive answer.

    Okay, it looks as though it was more than a few months back. Check out the following hardware review:

    <a href="http://www.homecinemachoice.com/testbench/Televisions/Visionery/VisioneryDD42.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.homecinemachoice.com/testbench/Televisions/Visionery/VisioneryDD42.shtml</a>

    Got the company name right (not quite right with the date though :)

    Details of the company are included in the test. Give them a buzz and they should be able to help.

    I think you will find these guys modify for SDI not DVI. See my recent post on video interface standards if you want to know the differce.

    I could be wrong and the memory fading me but... <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

    It is indeed SDI and not DVI. I tried posting a response along these lines last night but lost my net connection just at the wrong time.
