what is the DOA rate on the 360s? 99% of them?
(this includes disk read error and lock ups)

also do u know that 1080I = 540P

Actually it's more like 720p. Interlaced doesn't mean half resolution.

Not sure, I'm not measuring the data throughput of the unit. All I know is it supports DD 5.1 for audio, which is plenty for my setup.

actually, it's more like 1080i, interlaced = half the vertical scan(IE framerate)

1920x1080 can be livered in two ways while making sure all the resolution is still present. 1920x1080P, or progressive, shows all 1080 lines progressively (at the same time) for 1/30 second per frame. Conversely, 1920x1080i does something unique different in that is separates the even and odd numbered lines into two groups, and each group is called a 'field'. Both fields are contained in each frame, and when a frame is being transmitted the first field within the frame is displayed, for 1/60 sec, and then the second field is displayed, for 1/60 sec, before the next frame is displayed.

So, in 1/30 of a second you get all information contained in 1920x1080, but the transmission bandwidth requirement is halved for 1080i when compared to 1080P. The reason why interlaced video exists is to support limitations on broadcast transmission during the period of specification adoption.

BTW, it should be noted that manipulation of video needs to occur in an uncompressed manner, and in a non-interlaced form. This means that for an RGB device like video game consoles and DVD players they need to be progressive in form before than can a) scale (up or down!), and b) transcode to something else like Component video.

The poster was making it sound like 1080i didn't look as good as good as 720p when in fact the two are very comparible.

720p is lower resolution smoother picture, 1080i is prone to tearing.

I disagree. Tearing is only a problem if the deinterlacer can't handle the deinterlacing properly. As a result, its a problem with the display's deinterlacer and not the source material itself.

This is why junk deinterlacers cost a couple of hundred dollars and the most robust deinterlacers cost several thousand dollars. You get what you pay for.

no HDMI on the 360 makes the hd-dvd addon usesless.

you are limited to SPDIF output for audio which means your stuck with the old audio formats.

anyone who buys it is a fool.

hahahhaha SPDIF both coax and optical can do the current formats. unless Dolby Digital and DTS are old formats because as of current they are the firm standards of home theater.

That's correct, SPDIF only passes audio, not video.

I don't what plat2on1 is talking about with SPDIF and old audio formats since the new formats, Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD, both work over SPDIF.

TrueHD, DTS-HD Master, LPCM, Full bit rate DD+/DTS-HD

none will work over SPDIF.

only the core elements of DD+ and DTS-HD can be transferred over SPDIF.

I highly doubt we'll see a DTS-HD Master track on any movie within the next 5 years. LPCM has been passed down SPDIF since it came out. SPDIF can do DTS Encore, which is more than likely what most discs will be.

All of it will work over SPDIF, but it will be downsampled to something the receiver can take.

LPCM is limited to two channels over SPDIF.

DTS-HD core is the *same* 1.5Mpbs stream you get with a DTS SD-DVD right now.

fact is, your are stuck with legacy audio if all you have is SPDIF.

Not really. DTS even says that DTS Encore is better than currently used DTS scores.

Seeing that current DTS tracks are encoded at 768Kbps and DTS Encore is 1.5Mbps, yes it will sound better.

more marketing Microsoft Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive - Console Tech (35)

whiles its true full bitrate DTS tracks are difficult to come by in the US there are a few(Apllo 13 and Dante's Peak come to mind), they are more common in foreign releases.

they do sound better then half bitrate DTS and DD but still cant hold a candle to the real deal.

I don't really care what format it's using, it looks and sounds fantastic. Is it a risky format, sure...that's why they call it the bleeding edge. I'll enjoy the ride while it lasts.
