Hi
can any of u holo3d card owners please assist, i am getting this card but cant afford an sdi modded player at this stage, i am going to use my pioneer 737 (progressive ) dvd player what can i expect if i use the component in on the hd3 card, will it be on a par with the Theatertek software player.

cheers

I dont know the 737 but assuming the MPEG decoder is good you should see a comparable picture to TT. I was running a Sony CX860 until it packed in and Component in from that was as good as my TT.

Has the Pioneer got the Chroma bug?

You will not see a better picture with that player against a properly configured, calibrated HTPC with TT for film.

You will have BETTER performance than TT for video based material.

SDI would be the move towards TT and film.

Steve the pioneers has the chroma bug and it is only intended as a fill in.The panasonic you bought is it the american or european vcersion , because there are 2 types on the web site where u bought yours from with different power 110v and 220vThe european model is a dearer. + is your dvd-audio?
I had a word with Tom from Immersive and he is still looking for a European suppliers as yet hes had no luck.

Richard, I've got the RA82 which is Euro spec, the only thing I needed to get was a UK spec power cord, it came with a Dutch one! The difference between RA and US spec RP is it does not have component out nor is it progressive (not an issue) I think it is a DVDA player although not really checked, I got it 'cause it was SDI.

Hope this helps.

BTW How flexible are your working hours, I spend a bit of time in Leeds and could bring my Panny over once you've got your Holo card to see if it warrants buying.

Have been thinking about going the plunge with a HTPC using a H3D and getting a decent SDI modded player.

But and here is the big one, me and computer do not get on, so left me thinking a Quadscan CS2 with the SDI maybe the way to go.

Any thoughts open to most resonable suggestions

Oh currently use a Pioneer 737 via component to Quadscan Pro, XGA out into a Barco 1208/2.

I'm hoping to get my Pioneer 737 modded for SDI, to use with the Holograph 3D.
I was wondering if the chroma bug will still be a problem. Ie is the chroma bug built into the decoder chip, or during the A/D conversion.
So if the SDI mod takes the direct "digital" feed, will the processing in the Holograph hide or be free of the bug?.

Dont quote me on this I'm rapidly getting out of depth!! The Chroma bug is an fault in the MPEG decoder so it's automatically passed on as SDI picks up a direct digital feed, however the Fara FLi2200 chip does help to mask the Chroma bug to some degree, hopefully soemone more knowledgeable can fill in the gaps?

edit: Fulabeer the offer to Fatrich is open to you also, I'm only 25 miles south of Altrincham.

we will all have to get together and have a mini event, seriously i live in Halifax so meeting up aint a problem let me know and we can arrange something.

With the sdi thing i believe (not 100 %) that the chroma bug lives within the majority of dvd players as for as i am aware panasonic based machines with the exception of the denon 1600 player are the only players that are chroma free.

Jeff, depends on which TT :)

Neil

Actually I have been doing all sorts of stuff but mainly running the Arcam's components which are nothing short of superb. The dedicated player smokes TT on video performance, film its not so clear cut and is very heavily dependent on rez, frequency etc.

Watch this space.

Neil.
p.s. Sometime in November I will have a weekend free. If anyone wants to come over and stay and watch some movies and kick back and discuss processing, H3D, HTPC whatever let me know via PM.
