We get requests on the availability of the 970HD.
We have ordered it but if it will arrive is unsure. According to european environmental regulations the products should conform to RoHS regulations (used chemicals like lead). Every product imported needs to be RoHS compliant an the DV970HD currently is not. It is up to the manufacturing company to make improvements in this regard.
You can show your interest by leaving us an email, this way we can express customer interest to the manufacturer.
At this moment (januari 2007) it seems the 970HD will not make it in europe because of lacking PAL support. (2:2 PAL deinterlacing and 576P is not ok or missing)
