    Hi Tony,

    Not sure on your HP LCDs. Depends on the exact model. Most I've seen will scale the image down, just like TVs do. Results are... mediocre in my opinion. Digital scaling in-monitor generally leaves a lot to be desired.

    Thanks BH,
    So with that info I can conclude that the HDSpark will work with my HP LCD's, just have to wait for the surprise how my LCD handle's the overscan or squeezes the 1920 to 1680 resolution.
    In that case I'll wait for the Spark to become available with Ver. 5 as upgrade package, any update on that release date ?

    HDMI, like SDI, gets 1920x1080 for 1080i/p, and 1280x720 for 720p.

    So the HDMI signal is 1920x1080 resolution, regardless of what the original source resolution was (same happens for DVCPRO at 1280x1080 source resolution and HDV/HDCAM/XDCAM at 1440x1080 source resolution).

    After a long search I found : Supports video resolutions of 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p/60, NTSC and PAL.

    So if my HDV 1440 is on the time line via HDspark what will my monitor get 1440x1080i or 1920x1080i ?

    I used an HDMI to DVI cable, just for the JVC monitor.... not for my LCD display which i am using a direct HDMI to HDMI cable.

    But... why????

    Is there any possibility the problem cused by the HDMI 1.x version or something like HDCP support via HDMI?

    Let me get his straignt, you are using a HDMI to DVI adapter to your monitor from your HD Storm?

    Reason I'm asking is that I have 2 HDMI 16x10 LCD computer monitors and was thinking to get a HDspark + Edius 5 (upgrade package) for previewing on the 2nd monitor.
    I do understand that this monitor is not 1920i res, but when playing from my HC9 via HDMI i do get a running video with of course a tiny letterbox as the monitor is 1650x1080i and the footage is 1440x1080i, but would the HDspark give me 1440 or will it upres to 1920i ? does it work ?

    Would it be safe to say that if you use a handycam with HDMI out to test and the LCD monitor displays the video, any HDSpark or HDstorm card will work on that LCD too ?

    what kind of monitor do you have? I remember that some philips lcd screens had some issues with their hdmi connection eventhough the component input was working fine...
    did you try another monitor?

    Check the specs. If the monitor doesn't mention 1080i or 720p, it likely will not support YCbCr video.

    I think that's very important information! How can someone check if a monitor is capable of accepting YUV? Do you have a list? TIA!
