    General games HDfury 2

    Newly released at Divineo USA



    Upgrade any TV-projector by adding an HDMI digital video input! Works with any TV that accepts either Component (YPbPr-YCbCr) or RGB-VGA! Don't be stuck watching Blu-ray, DVD, Satellite-Cable at only 480p! Add an HDfury2, allowing you to watch hi-def content at up to FULL HD 1080p resolution!
    HDfury2 is the world smallest and most powerful HDCP deciphering converter ever built! The result is a crystal clear image that is perfectly centered (in component mode) with amazing color depth. It features VGA and Component video output, Analog and Optical sound output, and add-on accessories too ...

    Why do I need HDfury2?

    How old is your HDTV or projector? If it was bought prior to 2005 it does not have an HDMI input. This means that you'll never be able to use the full potential of your expensive CRT projector, digital projector, plasma display, or PC screen with new sources like the PS3, Xbox360, Blu-ray players, Cable TV - Satellite boxes, or PC graphics cards at up to 1080p FULLHD resolution.

    Without an HDMI input your display will be limited to 480p in most cases - that's only ONE SIXTH the resolution of 1080p FULLHD! You need HDfury2 to unlock the full potential of your display! Why buy an expensive new HDTV when your existing one works perfectly well? Enhance your display's compatibly and value with HDfury2!
    Designed by a group of home theater videophiles, the HDfury2 delivers a razor sharp picture with unprecedented colour from any HDMI source, supporting all resolutions up to 1080p FULL HD. The picture quality improvement when using HDfury2 is immediately obvious, providing an amazingly clear and detailed picture!

    Can't I use the component output on my Blu-ray player and other devices?

    No. Not without severe limitations:

    - Blu-ray, HD DVD, and DVD players (as well as the Xbox360 and PS3) will not upscale standard DVDs to 1080p over analog outputs. They are limited to 480p output only. To avoid this limitation digital HDMI must be used.
    - If enabled, the Image Constraint Token (copy protection) on Blu-ray or HD DVD discs reduces resolution from 1080p to 540p (ONE FIFTH the resolution) over analog outputs. To avoid this limitation digital HDMI must be used.
    - And most importantly: The image quality is significantly worse over analog outputs. To avoid this limitation digital HDMI must be used.

    HDfury2 is what you need to to add digital HDMI to your TV to bring it into the next generation and provide the best image quality possible!

    Will HDfury2 work for me?

    1. Does your display support at least one of the following resolutions: 720p (1280x720) or 1080i or 1080p (1920x1080) ?
    2. Does it have a Component or RGB (PC-VGA) input connector?

    If you answer YES to both questions then HDfury2 will work for you!

    Could come in handy for connecting an HDMI-only source to a Hauppauge HD PVR, which lets you copy from HDTV / Blu-Ray onto your PC. Buying both would cost a few body parts though!

    This device completely negates the Image Constraint Token. All it takes is one pirate with this device to copy a blu-ray movie and release it on the internet, so what was the point of hurting all of the early adopters who bought their TVs/devices before HDMI?

    show me 1 display that's capable of 1920 x 1080 resolution (other than a PC monitor) that doesn't have an HDMI input.

    I've just found out there are already some blu-ray rips online, so that didn't take long, did it?! History shows that using copy protection to stop pirates is a waste of time, as it is inevitably circumvented using free software or a gadget that is advertised as solving "display compatibility problems".

    Exactly. There are plenty of standard def projectors (and possibly some early 720p ones?) that don't have HDMI or DVI but there really can't be many people who genuinely need this device for connecting a 1080p source to a 1080p display.
