A 50Hz country question about the new Dell LCD screen and in fact most fixed pixel array displays (PDPs, etc) for home theatre or even notebook PCs - they all have a single nominal 60 Hz vertical rate - only !!! So is this the reason occasional picture stutter might be seen when showing 25 and 50 frame per second video - or what mechanism/process removes this and does this make these type of displays absolutely OK for critical picture evaluation of material that may involve temporal artifacts (particularly if trying to play out of a hi-grade PC GPU)? Maybe Jeroen or others can offer an answer. Specs for the Dell (including scan rates) are at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/3007WFP/EN/about.htm#Specifications Kind regards, Colin Wright Seven Australia ----- Original Message ----- From: "Donald Koeleman" <donald.koeleman@xxxxxxxxxx> To: <opendtv@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Tuesday, January 10, 2006 7:53 AM Subject: [opendtv] Re: Motorola Introduces First All-Digital Set-Top Family With Built-In Home Media Networking Capabilities And at higher resolutions?

Of course they are a great match for any HD HTPC, playing YCbCr, instead of converting dvd source's YUV to RGB. Though I just read that Nvidia's new h.264 decompression accelleration has an edge on ATi's, allowing lower spec cards to accelerate hd signals, whereas ATi's relies on a certain number of pixelpipes to be present, so only the high-end cards can provide sufficient accelleration support. It is said that MS recommends ATi graphics for Vista, due to better driver support. So no clear cut pc graphics leader at the moment. d. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can UNSUBSCRIBE from the OpenDTV list in two ways: - Using the UNSUBSCRIBE command in your user configuration settings at FreeLists.org - By sending a message to: opendtv-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word unsubscribe in the subject line.
