LD and CRT headaches
#1
So...I finally plugged up my old CRT/DVD recorder combo because I got fed up with upscaling. The 960 is better running composite than the Qdeo upscaler in my Onkyo receiver. But it is still processing inherently to convert the signal and made me miss my old set.

But I quickly remembered the old set's problem now, the fact that any object's motion causes slight combing artifacts around the entire edge of the object. This occurs on any source whether straight composite or via the recorder's component out. I tried to get a picture but it doesn't pick up. It is most noticeable on people, objects and the twin dots rolling during the opening gunbarrels. I'm thinking it's either the KV-32fs320s lesser 2d comb filter or SVM or its advertised digital edge whatever processing.

Anybody ever come across this?


And yes...I literally have two CRTs going side by side....I officially need help....

Do you have S-Video connections and a cable handy to compare?

Yeah I do, I will try later tonight after work. Do you think it might make a difference?

Had sec to try. It made no real difference. The lines may have been slightly smaller on S-video or it may be my eyes playing tricks on me. I have them appear on composite, S-video, Component and even when running through the external comb filter on the ES25.

You should try a different player with all inputs to make 100% sure the problem lies with the tv.

Back in the early 2000's I learned how to access the "secret" service menu on my 21 inch Sony. (I was too scared to fool with any of the settings much though.) Perhaps there's a way to disable some of the processing yours is doing?

That's what I'm thinking. I had to teach myself how to do all that madness to painstakingly adjust geometry on the 960. I checked for the Scanning Velocity Modulation on some Sonys but nothing had the correct abbreviation. I guess I'll have to keep digging to see if anyone knows how to turn this kind of stuff off as the SV menu really is terrifying. I know my old 4:3 set has a bit of overscan but I'd rather leave it as is than ever do geometry overscan fixes ever again.
