The drive itself is firmware version
1.5 and I understand it can be flash upgraded but considering its present performance; I
am of the old adage "If it ain't broke..."
PC-DVD x2 Performance
Movie playback on the
monitor appears outstanding at 800x600 @ 16bpp. but tends to blur a bit as the resolution
increases and gets a bit blocky at 640x480 @ 8bpp. But its on the home TV where the
performance of DVD really shines. The color and resolution at 60MHz are outstanding.
And the audio through our Pro Logic Home Theater system is absolutely riveting. You
should be aware however that not all movie titles are equal. The Devil's Advocate,
for instance looks absolutely horrible with this setup. I mean it could give you
seizures. That is the only disk in my experience to function that poorly but I
understand that others are out there. The store where we purchased the disk let us
exchange it without a fuss when we explained the problem.
