Hi Guys,
I have an old (er) Sony KV32XBR200.
In all video modes there are jagged edges on letters , straight lines , ect.
Now , when I push the menu button , all the jagged edgas are gone.
Is this a case in which the SVM ( or Velocity Scan Modulation) is turned off during menu selection ?
Of course if ,I`m in the video menu a push (make a selection or change) the screen brightens up and the jagged edges come back.
How hard is it to get the back off and cut that wire to disable SVM ?
Is that the problem ? It is not as bad in the "movie mode" but if I turn the "picture" adjustment up the jagged edges start to apear. Please understand that what I`m discibing is under regular cable (ntsc) and have only noticed this condition on DVD`s when a subtitle is shown.
Any and all help would be greatful. Thanks in advance Posted Image
I`m realy not opposed to get the set IFS calibrated , however it is an older set. BUT on the flip side the newer XBR`s show realy baddd NTSC and right now that and DVD`s will be it for me (at least until my cable co. calls "digital" for what it is supposed to be, and not enhanced ntsc, meaning = just more ch. for more money not realy HD)
Anyway , please help thanks !!
