Mitsubishi Promise Module

1

More indepth look at the decision on getting the right over-the-air set-top-box. Here are relevant links:
* Home Theater SPOT!. This is the debate about the Promise module for the Mitsubishi. It has an OTA tuner built-in, but costs $1K. Main advantage is the Firewire-5C for connecting with all digital copy protected settop boxes.
* “Digital Inputs Firewire-5C vs. DVD-HDCP”:http://www.hometheaterspot.com/htsthreads/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=UBB10&Number=374544&page=5&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1. There is much debate about which input is going to become standard. Relevant since Promise only has one sort. Says that the “Samsung T165”:http://www.bestphotovideo.com/store/samsung_SIR-T165.html and the upcoming new “JVC DishPVR 921”:http://www.cnet.com/investor/news/newsitem/0-9900-1028-20787330-0.html will have both outputs and will be available later in 2003.
* “Seattle Cable HDTV”:http://hdtvpub.com/local/viewReports.cfm/zipcode_98112/dma_819/city_Seattle/cableco_4/. Must be the most underpublicized program in history. AT&T has had HD Cable for SHO and HBO for a year and no one talks about it.
Other good sites for over-the-air work:
* “AntennaWeb”:www.antennaweb.org. A great site that will tell you where the high definition TV signals are.
* “Titan TV”:http://www.titantv.com/ttv/home/HDTVUpdate.aspx. A great list of current HDTV programs on the air right now.

  1. Broken Promise. They said the module or the upgrades would be resonable. Ha very funny 1,000 dollars to get the TV to work the way it’s supposed to? I would consider that a broken promise.
