    Hi there,

    DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface and was invented by Silicon Image and others. There are various standards including DVI-HDCP which includes copy protection. The DVI inputs on HE gear will be replaced in the next year or two by the new HDMI standard which includes digital video and sound on one small mini-Scart type connector. This should greatly reduce the amount of spaghetti connecting our equipment, and also the cost of it all! :)
