Dig this...I got a component to VESA connection for my X1 today so I can watch progressive scan DVDs. After hooking it up, I noticed it is slightly clearer which is to be expected. I also noticed, however, that the black levels were not as good as they were with the component to svideo adapter that came with the X1. After re-tweaking the contrast and brightness levels it got better but still wouldn't go as black as it did with the interlaced picture. Is that Faroudja processing really that good??? For the comparison, I watched the scene in Star wars AOTC where Obi wan hid in the shadows as he listened to Christopher lee plot with all the muppets on world domination. Without the progessive scan the picture looked dark and you could make out obi's robe and surroundings. With the vesa adapter connected and progessive enabled all those details were gone... all you can pretty much make out is his face. What's up with this? Anyone else have similar experiences? I also noticed that you lose control of your color and tint while in progressive mode as well. What's up with that? I just got done singing songs of high praise for the X1 on this board. Infocus may make a jerk out of me yet. Someone kick some feedback please.
