Re: Source for Sony SBX1602A Serial to Parallel chip??

Agreed.  But words to Sony at this level fall on deaf ears, it seems.
It's one thing to compalin to the factory building DVTRS, but quite
another complaining to the foundry making chips for ALL manufacturesr.
In the end, I think the end user has no leverage; it is up to the 
equipment manufacturers.  It is sad that most manufacturers recongnize 
Sony's deficiency but choose to bypass the problem by going with Thomson.
Says something about Sony's bottom-to-top involvement in our best interests.
