    I'm thinking of buying a new dvd player. But the one I buy needs to be compatible so I can add an SDI mod to it.
    I understand only certain models/brands can be modded with this upgrade.

    Would like to hear what players yall went with and any suggestions on some players that are good candidates to go with ? I currently have a JVC model but mine is not mod-friendly with the sdi mod.

    Also, did you buy a player already modded with SDI or have it added and if so, Which company did your Mod?

    Were the improvements in video worth the price of the SDI modification?

    Thanks for the feedback!

    There is a lot of discussion on this over at the AVSforum. Basically, you want a player with a good mpeg decoder.

    Some of the SDI mods are very easy to do, I've done one myself. others I rather have the professionals at JVB digital, or PMS Video do it for me as I dont want to mess up a good player. Heck even a premod one is good as long as you use a good cable.

    Get a cheap Panny RP-82 and SDI mod it. Then you have a SUPERB picture, almost as good as it gets, for a cheap price.
