    Were looking at the Pioneer range and have setlled on the PDP433, only trouble is cant decide betwen the HDE or MXE model. Any views as to which is the best?

    The mxe is best , but is more complex to set up, not as user friendly. Your not a body builder by any chance are you ?

    Thanks Installer.

    Body builder? My idea of weight lifting is picking up the pronto!

    In what way is the MXE more complex? I,ve been told the HDE lacks auto input selection and aspect ratio change. Is this right ?
    What about the MXE?

    Cheers

    The mxe lacks those things as well , but it does have a better picture , and can be upgraded , it also supports pal progressive which the hde does not. Try doing a search under Joe Fernands name he knows everything about them. I spend a lot of time on a body building forum and there is a big al on there :D

    Looks like lots of time redesigning the pronto to accomodate these requirements then.

    Cheers

    Hi Al,

    ...and don't forget the MXE is £900 cheaper :)

    MXE wins on picture quality. There's no value in the HDE media box that cannot be beaten by a free to air digibox. The MXE also opens much greater flexibility for future upgrades.

    There's a more comprehensive answer under the thread on PDP 503 and Progressive scan.
