Device Fw rev Resolution Compatibility Notes
Tivo Series 3 unknown forced 720p intermittant I could get NeTV into mode where it just showed black background, usually by switching video inputs on TV and coming back to the Tivo+NeTV chain. (chumby) Does it ever work? i.e. is the previous description the intermittent failure case, or the dominant operating mode
PS3 CECH-2501A Version 3.56 forced 480p, 720p & 1080p intermittent NeTV works under 480p and 720p. However it doesn't work under 1080p, and even doesn't go into the self-timing mode.
Sony Blueray DVD Player BDP-S370 MO3.R.511 forced 480p, 720p & 1080p intermittent NeTV works well under 480 and 720p, but it goes into the self-timing mode under 1080p.
LG Network Blueray Disc/DVD Player BD550 Main Ver: BD4.380.00; Servo Ver: H08LGN0902 forced 480p, 720p & 1080p intermittent NeTV can work under 480p and 720p, but NeTV becomes snowy when changing the resolution to 720p sometimes. NeTV can display abnormally under 1080p in the very beginning, then it goes into self-timing mode.
AKIRA DVD Player DVD-K3528HD unknown forced 480p, 720p & 1080p intermittent Also works well under 480p and 720p, and under 1080p NeTV failed to go into the self-timing mode.
