    Hi,

    From what I can see - it's just the addition of the DVI-HDCP adaptor on the RD50H model.

    The model being sold in the UK (as of 2 weeks time) is the Optoma ThemeScene RD50 - which comes with DVI-HDCP adaptor - so will essentially be the RD50H with regional changes.

    Here's the "differences" for the USA models, as published on the http://www.optomatv.com site:

    RD50 Specifications
    User-friendly Features

    Multiple connectors (DVI, BNC RGB, Composite, S-Video, RF, VGA, YPbPr)
    DVI connector ensures connectivity with future digital devices
    Individual picture adjustment memory for each input source
    Nine display formats for flexible re-sizing and display
    2-tuner Picture-In-Picture (PIP) and Picture-On-Picture (POP)
    Favorite channel memory
    Two built-in 15-watt stereo speakers
    Intuitive Onscreen Display design for easy operation
    Image Processing Technology
    HDTV-ready for 480p, 1080i and 720p formatted media
    Precision Pixel Matching (PPM) technology for 1:1 scan conversion
    Unique color gamma fine tuning can be manually adjusted
    DVDO 504 Progressive Processing for artifact-free scaling
    3D Digital Comb Filter for sharp and noiseless video signals

    Remeber the USA models are not the same as the UK ones at all. UK has HD2+ chipset rather than HD2, Faroudja deinterlacing rather than Silicon Image, HDCP support etc. The US models are more like the Sagem Axium over here than the upcoming RD50.
