I did a search & didn't see anything on this so I thought I'd post a link. Pioneer is getting ready to release a couple of DVD Player/Recorders with Tivo service using the DCDI Faroudja chip. One will be an Elite model. Here's the link: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/Pi...,93040,00.html There are also getting ready to release a couple of new Elite receivers VSX-55TXi & VSX-53TX. The VSX-55 TXi has the I-link (firewire port). http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/Pi...,93037,00.html Trust me if you have a VSX-49TX receiver & it doesn't have the firewire port pay the $500 to have it upgraded for the firewire port & the extras that would essentially make it a VSX-49TXI. Pioneer is offering the upgrade on the receiver until July 31st. Listening to DVD-Audio & SACD through the firewire port when paired with the DV-47Ai is a night & day difference. Talk about serious bass & clarity - unbelievable. SACD sounds completely different throught the firewire port - totally 3 dimensional. I use the firewire port for DVD movies & CDs also. I did a comparison using my CD changer & playing the same CD through the DV-47Ai using the firewire port. No comparison - there was a big improvement when playing through the firewire port. If any of you have any questions about the upgrade I'll be glad to try to answer them.
