    Anyone else using the JVC s60 with any of the new HX Toshibas? I just bought the JVC and im finding the graininess in the picture totally unacceptable. Shrek looked AWESOME but i popped in Saving Private Ryan so i could see the cars grill scene in order to see the diff between the prog and interlaced and that whole scene before with the officers in the office was almost unwatchable cuz of all the noise.. Is it me??

    Saving Private Ryan is filmed (or was post processed) in a grainy format. Try another movie.

    I have an older Toshiba, the 40H80. When I moved to the JVC from an older interlaced Toshiba player, I immediately noticed the "grain" also. The grain was always there, in fact, but the better progressive player more accurately reproduces it.
    Note that the grain is emphasized by mpeg2 encoding process, effectively making it even worse, in the form of artifacts. it is especially noticeable during darker scenes where they've obviously turned the compression up.
    I think the problem is that the JVC does too good a job!
