Have any specialists in here tried the latest Pio's with the currently accepted best scalers. I've done a lot of reading over the last few days, but apologies because I am still new to this level of technical A/V stuff. I'm looking to improve my Sky, and an SDI mod is the best overall option, but I do most of my TV watching timeshifted via my TiVo. This has had it's resolution hacked to 720x576 with a few other tweaks so the output visually is as good as the native Sky RGB. So irrespective of the Sky+ mod, I'll also be looking for the best quality TiVo picture. I think I have 3x options from what I've researched so far Crystalio VPS2300 - seems to be the best around, best looks also, but has a couple of issues that don't look like they may be fixed, (including HDMI input capability with certain resolutions, and macroblocking artifacts) as they are not software problems. Also, has SDI but only a single DVI input, although HDCP is now part of the spec. Also v. expensive at £2200 Crystalio Plama Enhancer Pro - Not yet available (end Jan/Feb) has dual HDMI input, and SDI, same guts as the Crystalio but should be half the price, not as many connections and inputs, and unproven, will not process HD (passthru only) only SD video capable. Lumagen Vision HDP - ugly looking thing, but it's inside that counts. Lots of people swear by the Lumagens on this forum. Has dual DVI input with HDCP, and lots of ongoing software development, and has a sound hardware base with no current hardware limitations that I've found. Possibly cheapest option, but will need upgrading for SDI. I'm very confused as to how the input limitations on the Pioneer HDMI interface will work with the above scalers. As for the TiVo, I've heard from someone who uses a Lumagen HDP Pro fed by a JS RGB to component converter, claiming near-DVD quality from the TiVo. However, I've also heard that the JS converter may not be necessary as I can use an RGBS scart to 4x phono directly into the scaler from the TiVo. Does anyone have any advice or experience they can offer?
