    I assume no news is bad news in this case:(

    Does anyone know anything about this tuner board? Is it real?

    Thanks

    I've asked Pioneer UK for an update - no reply as yet; I'll chase them up again this morning.

    Altinex the US switching, distribution and CAT5 specialist are the first to market with a licensed card for the Pioneer MXE range - they have a CAT-5 receiver card available at around £500.00.

    Back to you as soon as I can.

    Best regards

    Joe

    Just back from CeBit, not really an AV show I know, but I did see a new tuner board on a stand, no literature on it as the guy said it would be retailed through the normal Pio channels. It had a tuner, single scart and DVI connectors on it. The chap didn't speak too much english, so I couldn't deduce whether it was an anolgue tuner or a DVBt one..

    So it looks like there will be a few t choose from!!

    Then again, reading some AV manuals, does anyone in the AV business speak English?:D :D

    June 2003 - that's all I've managed this week; I'll keep on pestering them for info on what's due to be released and for how much.

    Best regards

    Hello Dave

    Have a look at this web site (See http://www.aviosys.com/) have a look in the products index! The translation is a bit ropey but you'll get the basics.

    This looks like it will be the official alternative Pioneer board for the MXE displays - probably becoming available Late June 03 with an SRP around £599 inc vat.

    I'm guessing we will be able to specify from new with the MXE panel or order in as an 'upgrade.

    Best regards

    Joe

    Input 02 connectors (5x BNC for RGBHV or YUV) are built into the MXE display and if the new board works like the current PDA-5002 board the YUV (Component) inputs become active once the video board is installed into the card slot.

    I'll confirm with Pioneer that this is still the case.

    Best regards

    Interesting.....

    Not that I;m that fussed, but do you think having the scart input would allow the auto wide switching signal to work? Learnt to live without it since i got my plasma, so as i say not really bothered, just curious.. I also wonder how the RGB input direct from sky would compare to sky converted to VGA via JS.

    Hi Jo,

    A sneaky one indeed!

    I own a PannyW5 so i'm more knowledgable on Panny connections than Pio's but my dad will be purchasing a 50" MXE just as soon as that darn KeyDigital card becomes available. He loves his standard teresstrial TV so im interested on his behalf. From what you say the MXE's come with BNC connectors moulded onto the unit as standard??

    Do you need adaptors for connecting RCA component or do they have RCA inputs on them also??

    I am aware what the KeyDigital card will do but not really up to speed on the Aviosys one, does this do scaling/deinterlacing also like the KeyDig or is it just a tuner solution for MXE units?

    cheers

    Steve
