My current understanding (IFA) is that there will not be an E2. The Venturer will be filling that slot.

At the current time, there are no reported plans for an XE2 either (or an XA3 for the U.S.). However, we are expecting an (EDIT) EP35.

The Venturer model number is SHD7000
The Onkyo model number is DV-HD805
The Integra model number is DHS-8.8

EDIT (As mentioned below, the EP10 is being replaced by the EP30.)

Why not add the US models including the 1st gens?

Also new 360's now come with HDMI. :thumbsup:

The HD-E1 does not have HDMI?? Well, my E1 does - or one that is masquerading as HDMI :rolleyes:

And the 360 does [I]not [/I]have HDMI (Unless you have an Elite).

Prob. best to list the Std. Xbox and the Elite as seperate machines..

Do none of them have DTS MA ? :eek:

Be nice if you listed the various sound outputs too, ie. analouge/optical/coaxial/hdmi , bitstream etc..

And considering the region free nature of HD-DVD I also think you should list the US models too.. :D When you get a minute. ;)

none have MA as of yet. Will be on some models when firmware update hits. Also, there will be no replacement for the E1 so the E2 should be removed.

The columns are a bit out with the tabbing. The No is referring to 1080p output.

Not entirely true as all new 360 premiums off the production line now come with HDMI as standard!

If any one wants to pm me or reply with any specs I have missed for current machines please do. since the blu ray list has prices and video decoder listed, is it worth "us" finding out chips in the machines? to offer a comparable list? only say yes, if your gonna help find out what they are :D

I would remove the Meridian one. The announcement made 'on their behalf' was not sanctioned by them and erroneous - it was officially retracted by Meridian clarified simply as an announcement that they had joined the HD DVD Promotional Group rather than producing any specific hardware.
