The DVDO features the innovative PureProgressive technology with deinterlacing algorithms which perform over six billion operations per second on incoming video. The iScan uses the data from four video fields to determine exactly which portions of the image are in motion, what type of movement exists in each, and how best to generate a progressive image with maximum picture detail for that portion. The unit features two S-Video inputs, one composite input and component or RGB or VGA 480p output. (WINNER: C. K. from California, USA!)

X-10 IR543 One of the most popular home automation technologies is X-10, which allows you to remotely control lighting, appliances and other devices with compatible X-10 outlets, switches and modules. But the problem with integrating this normally RF remote-based technology with a universal IR remote control is finding a way to convert an IR signal to X-10 (which is transmitted through electrical wiring). This is where the $29 X-10 IR543 comes in - it's a compact, efficient device that allows control of 16 devices on one house code. Check out the X-10 forum for more information! (WINNER: A. A. from Iowa, USA!)
