    Hi,
    Other than PC's and DVI equiped DVD players, what other uses could the DVI input be used for?

    Regard
    John

    Everything, it is an multi purpose connector. Analogue, digital and now with in-built optical transmitters and recievers for really long distances.

    Video scalers, you can do that now, unlike most of the other things still in dreamland. Mainstream DVD players are 'coming soon' but the standard is different to a PC DVI, so not all DVI's are created equal. Caution in your enthusiasm, they are fairly fraught in my experience.

    digital video input.
    a few manfactures that arent goin the hdmi route are goin dvi basicly a compatable dvd player will upconvert pic to say 768p or if there real generous 1080p. so this will be as HDTV.
    bear in mind when the dvd forum decides to make HD-DVD there is a chance new players will have to come out. this route will be true HDTV as it is not upscaled so picture quality will be ace
    but us muppets will have to replace the dvd collection so i would
    stick with an upscaled pic even though it will loose a little quality. but hey still tones better than 480p or 625p
