Yeah, someone isn't doing so hot at getting the official public release out the door as they've promised to do several times now over the past several weeks. Nothing much is going to happen until said someone gets that done. I'm far from a video output expert, and I've lost interest in trying to ramp up on it and implement crystal hd support until the bits are actually properly released. Too many other things to work on that aren't essentially just vaporware. :\
