its been noted numerous times previously the chip in the Micro can't do 4:2:2
However you can record 4:2:2 programs and play them back on your computer with the right codecs
Do you want to pay for a standard ham 80M through 6M transceiver or a full blown Computer controlled DSP spectrum analyzer 160M through 0.125 CM four transmitter 8 receiver unit that weighs 450 pounds?I'll be the first to admit I haven't read all 500+ threads where the microHD is mentioned, however I haven't been able to track down the exact reason why or a good explanation why 4:2:2 cannot be implemented in this box. Sure the ALI chipset doesn't have 4:2:2 integrated into the chip, that doesn't mean that it couldn't be programmed to do so via software. If boxes can be programmed to do things not natively supported by the chipset, like decode nagravision for example, why could they not be programmed to decode 4:2:2 chroma?

Basically: weight, size, current draw, cost, design time, reliability .......

And who is on 0.125 CM? -- who is going to be using using 4:2:2 by the time the bugs get worked out --- and by the time the "Broadcast Standard" is worked out (or abandoned completely)?
Keeping it simple, when in my Sat scanning and viewing would I need this 4:2:2. Upgrading to S2 & MPEG4 with micro HD and now I'm hearing I might need 4:2:2 soon???
No, what you're hearing us say is that 4:2:2 use is on the decline. If you don't need 4:2:2 now, you need it even less in the future!
