    :lease: Hi All,



    I keep hearing about the possibility of getting an SDI output from my 3910 added by modification. What advantages does SDI confer over DVI and HDMI in terms of picture quality. Would their be any benefit in outputting via SDI to my lumagen?

    Cheers

    I've never owned an SDI modded player, but it's meant to be the purest signal straight from the disk without any tampering from the player, which can do more harm than good. For instance, the faroudja deinterlacer which turns interlaced into progressive in the 3910 also gives macro blocking errors, which can be rather nasty, you may have experienced these. You will probably get the best results by sending SDI to the Lumagen, because it doesn't go via the faroudja, hence no macro blocking & the Lumagen will perform all processing much better than the 3910.
