I have poured over the data sheet for the ADV734x encoder a number of times and I wanted a good explanation of the low/high drive options? It seems that I would want the high drive options always since I am connecting to video equipment directly. Other than saving power, can anyone tell me why I would want to use the low drive option and increase cost with LPFs on each DAC? I guess if you want the outputs buffered as well and protected then the low drive with the LPF chip adds that protection -- But, I am just hypothesizing, is it as simple as that, or am I missing something?
