    Does any one know if the PhD8 is going to accept 50 hz at Native Resolution via DVI? Obviously this is the golden question for all HCPC and scaler users.

    Yes on analogue and probably no on dvi/hdmi, it says no in the brochure.

    Thanks for that. I located the brochure and noted resolution at 50 hz does not appear to be supported on any input, digital or analog. I can only hope that this is incorrect or it will be a huge disappointment. If Pioneer can support native resolution at 50 Hz on the MXE-1 via DVI, why can no one else?

    All the people with HCPCs and scalers who were hoping to avoid FRC and judder with the new Panasonics look like being sorely disappointed.

    Just go in RGBhv, that is what I am doing, the DVI still doesn't seem to be as good as analogue anyway from the reports on AVS.

    Pioneer actually can't, it converts it to 100Hz.

    How does 100Hz converted from 50Hz look on the Pioneer? And will the new 6th Gen Pioneers support native resolution at 50Hz?

    As 50Hz to 100Hz is pretty much the easiest frame rate conversion to do (just show each frame twice) I'd expect the Pio to handle this well...

    It's the 50 to 60 Hz that is not so smart (poor ticker text scrolling and other jerkiness seen by many)...

    Rather disappointed to hear that PHD8 may not accept Native at 50Hz on DVI /HDMI ... (having said that I recall on more than one occasion in the past that a spec said "No" but reality was that it worked)

    Am I losing my memory MAW / Joe / Gordon?

    the thing is HDMI is very strict on what is allowed DVi-D more flexible and incorporates VESA and mac res and timings the 42" screens of 1024x768 res are oddities as are 50" at 1366x768 but there is more chance of getting native on the 50" and 65" than the 42". Pioneers 1280x768 similar issues
