    During to discussion with John Sim, he has pointed out that the Pioneer probably needs the PDA5002 input card ??

    Am i going to get anything without this ?? - if this is the case, whats the point of selling it without ??

    Help please - i'm coming over all hot and bothered at the moment :confused:

    Without the 5002 card you get a VGA input and a component (BCA) input, but no composite, s-video or DVI. So yes it'll work fine but you're a bit limited in connectivity. Having said that I rarely use s-video and never use composite, but the DVI is definitely worth it for hooking up to a PC.

    Personally I would recommend you get the card, but it's not a must have by any means. If you can afford it you might want to wait for the new Key Digital card with loads of connectivity and a price of around #1500+:rolleyes:

    The Pioneer PDP-433MXE and PDP-503MXE without the PDA-5002 card will ONLY input a PC type signal on Input 01. VGA and Input 02. 5 x BNC sockets - you cannot input a Video signal (15.6Khz) from one of Johns converters into either of these inputs without the PDA-5002 being present.

    The displays are available without the card for those who are only running PC type signals - lots of Corporate installs for example and also for those who plan to use an external processor that outputs at PC rates/resolutions or the soon to be released third party video cards for fitting in the card slot.

    Best regards

    Joe
