I've got the Lumagen HDP on order which will eventually plug into a PHD8 via DVI to a DVI board. I know perhaps I should have looked around a bit more but i'm just wondering if i've made the right decision when I look at the spec sheet for the VP30? All those HDMIs!! An upgradable processor! And overall a nicer looking box (which to be honest, doesn't really bother me.) QUESTIONS: How do these two boxes compare with each other? Am I better off or worse off with the HDP when it comes to PQ? When it comes to the ports what features am I losing out on when it comes to having DVI in/out instead of HDMI? On another note, the HDP - can the optional SDI board be ordered at a later date and fitted by the end user (that has a fair idear when it comes to electronics)? Many thanks Craig.
