Hi,

My local Philips dealer has lent me a 'HD stream' player with a hard drive. There is something like 20 HD video demos from philips (it's not a 'for sale' product Wink )
There is a hdmi and a dvi output. The player can output 720p or 1080i, 50 or 60Hz

If i connect the player (using hdmi output) directly to the DVI entry of my 1292, i have an image. Well, it's not perfect : i have some dark zones on the screen and some strange little horizontal lines (bandwidth problem ???). But i can easily recognize the picture.

When i connect this player to the HDQ, the result is very weird. The right part of the image appears to the left or i only have half of screen used, it's nearly impossible to have acces to Lumagen menu. When it was possible, i switch from 1080p to 720p output and it was like if the HDQ doesn't change the output resolution and had a big problem to recognize the input format.

In the show room dealer, when this player is used on a philips lcd screen, you have a menu on the screen and you can choose which HD file to play.
I saw only one time this menu with the HDQ and it last 0.5 second !

So maybe this 'player' is outputting some strange things but ... when i use it with a dvdo VP-30 with ABT evolution, every thing is ok Shocked

The vp30 tells the input is 720p ou 1080i and output a normal image to my 1292.

Serge.

Well, we'd need one in here to check out. If its not for sale yet though I don't see how we're going to debug this anytime soon. Can you send us yours?

It's not possible Sad
Having this player at home was already a 'privilege' Embarassed

I've made some screen shots last night just for you to see the kind of image i got in the best case :

HD1153 ? Strange format, no ?

The de-interlacing is horrible...

The worst case (same point of view as previous pictures...) :

And sometimes it's like this :

Only half of the image is visible.

With this signal, it's impossible to change the ouput resolution. Every thing is ok in the HDQ menu but it doesn't apply the changes Confused

Hard to say what odd thing they're doing to the signal to screw it up. We work according to the standards so without something for us to look at we don't have much to go on. Since this is some type of early device you were looking at they're probably still making changes and will hopefully correct it themselves.
