With the great help from Joe Fernand at the Media Factory I received my MXE 433 last Saturday. 1) Sky + to Scart to VGA converter (John Sim) into input 1. 2) DVD from an "old" Sony DVD 7700 via component into input 2. Picture on Sky is surprisingly good. Very good on Chan 5 or Sky Premier 1, 2, 3. With the benefit of DD5.1 from Sky +, the overal sound and picture impact is very close to DVD. Any opinions on the benefits of progressive Pal/NTSC compared to my interlaced DVD output with the MXE 433 ? Does the IScan Ultra make a real difference ? Maybe I'll wait for the next generation of DVD players with DVD out (supporting 576P please, not just 480P) + the Key Digital Card.
