for anyone who knows anything about board design, chipset is a phase 2 development stage phase 3 finalized. you can't even get something to work at all without proper chipset. he probably remembered a memo he saw 6-8 mos ago.
There was an HDCP issue/flaw that was not discovered in those chips until many projectors were released requiring a chip swap in June 2003 in the field for those projectors that had socketed chip DVI boards and for those projectors with non- socketed chips it was a factory recall. This happened last June. This affected all HDCP compliant devices.
Because of this fact, and the fact that the 921 is to be HDCP compliant, it is possible that Charlie may, in fact be accurate if they were using HDCP Chips from before May, 2003.
Scott- can you supply details as to what it was you were referring to? Charlie Ergan, I blame him for being evasive and a tease but that's his style. I try to avoid reading too much into his Charlie Chat comments. Kind of like holding a politician to his word, or trusting an attorney to do what's ethical.
Bob- Dwin was the company who found the problems as they were one of the first to actually implement the HDCP and test it with their monitors. Their discovery led to the re-make of the HDCP code so I suspect that if your TV was made prior to JUne, you may have the buggy HDCP. I can't tell you specifically what the problem was but I can tell you that the HDCP signal was not displayed with the old chip. Dwin fixed all our projectors free last summer.
Don I don't know all the details but was told that they listened to a bunch of suggestions from the board and redegisned things based on the feedback. I do know that the firewire stuff is VERY important to them as well.
