No thanks, I couldn't be happier with Vizio and every product I've gotten from them. I'm much more inclined to believe that I was screwed by the less than reputable seller that I was foolish enough to buy from. They probably passed me a knock off or defected model. Thanks for the links though, I'm curious about the HD Fury though, it just looks like a HDMI=Component/VGA adaptor. I assume that there's no way to pass Audio or true 1080p across that? I came across mentions of the "HDCP strippers" seems a bit shady but I'll keep it in mind, thanks.
Thanks guys, I'll keep looking and if I come across a more elegant solution I'll definitely let everybody know!
What ever happened to the HDCP "hack" code that came out a while back? I was expecting someone to step up and make use of it by now.
hack code was released and some manufacturers utilize it by embedding that code into chips that are used in splitters and converters like the hdfury. code alone is nothing you need to run and apply somehow. software alone is not fast enuff to decode all that data in the stream which is why devices like this exist. most of the hd strippers have been taken off the market as soon as the code went public. there are only 3 off the top of my head that can get around it. hdfury is prolly the best of the bunch. because it is firmware upgradable. and for EDID support as well.

and no it's not just an hdmi to vga or component adapter. there is microchips inside that have the HDCP embedded code as well as EDID sensing software. this is all being stripped and from the data stream in real time and new EDID packets are injected at the same time through the output. what you get in the end is a clean 1080p signal. and yes VGA can output and is fully capable of carrying a 1080p video stream.

here is a visual display of how your content is HDCP protected before and after HDFURY is applied.



left side PS3 with HDCP over HDMI:
the pic on the left shows red which indicates a protected stream. the blue line displays other options once prerequisites are made. in this case on the left if you chose to use an HDMI to DVI cable your DVI output will still be encrypted and the monitor it connects to will still need HDCP compliant DVI sockets. also your only audio option since DVI cannot carry audio would be optical toslink output.

right side PS3 with HDCP removed over HDMI connected to HDFURY:
this pic on the right shows green which indicates a digital signal in the clear with NO HDCP. the blue represents new connection options once HDCP is removed. DVI, VGA and component(YPbPr/YCbCr) with audio options for RCA stereo OR optical toslink.
this is a better solutions since all these outputs will not give you HD LAG or lag from decompression times associated with HDCP over HDMI.
ALSO this method allows one to gain HDMI output once again using a DVI or component converter box to HDMI.

hope this helps everyone understand everything better.
if anyone got questions just ask away.

and last but not least to clarify some things...
COMPONENT, VGA and DVI connections CAN output 1080p video @ 60 frames/sec
those who keep thinking VGA or DVI and COMPONENT cannot do this need to realize there is no difference over short distances using these 2 technologies. however the main advantage HDMI has over these 3 is audio support. that is all.

and for video review and explanation here are 2 videos from the tekzilla boys themselves which btw they removed from their own site since they were threatened by the MPAA.
