    A few questions about the Panny DVI board:

    1. Will the PW6 TY42TM6DB DVI board work in the PW7?
    2. Does any one have the full list of resolutions and frequencies
    3. I assume that the 526p/50 through DVI will be better than the 526p/50 through component from my 868AVi-s

    Thanks

    Panny

    1)YES same board
    2)are all in the boards manual
    3)from 868i (poor analogue outputs) yes but a good component player will knock spots of DVi (Tosh SD9000 isnt even prog scan but incredible also top end Pio and Denon units fron 2 years ago £2k+ new now £4-500 S/H top end)

    Oh and YES HDCP compliant for supported frequencies

    Not quite sure why everyone knocks the 868's component - I saw little difference between it and the 3900 when I saw them side to side. Also heard so many probs with the Faroudja chip (Macro blocking etc) that steered me away from Denon.

    Also I have read many reviews that say the 868 has the best digital output in its class - interested to know why you think it is a little disappointing compared to component out of a Denon (I appreciate that I can't get 720p/50).

    One last question - I have searched and read many threads on the forum. Basically the HDMI card is pretty much the DVI card with a different connector isn't it?

    yes, bit more to it but they all suport the same signals.....Was reffering specifically to the TOSH IME (was on PJ not a plasma tho so that may have something to do with it)
