    I'm not too familiar with your player, but for anybody do answer the question well they will need to know what your tv set is (and what comb filter it has).

    My (somewhat informed, with partial first-hand experience) opinion is that if you have a modern set with a 3D comb filter, any Pioneer below an Elite 97 or 99 would probably be better off connected with composite. Perhaps someone has a better informed opinion than mine, though...

    It really depends on your TV. If you have a TV with a really good comb filter (3D digital), then use composite. If you have an older TV with a 2 or 3 line analog filter, then use the S-Video. The comb filter in the CLD-79 is pretty darn good and will usually outperform those in most NTSC analog TVs.

    Use the composite input. The comb filter on your Sony is better than the one on the Pioneer.

    [​IMG] So, you got it Grant! You're working your way up. The 79's filter is a 3 line digital filter. It's not bad but your TV's is better. I can well imagine as I have it's 36" big sister. I finally got a copy of MASTER OF THE WORLD and Brett is sending me a copy of WAX MUSEUM. The Vincent Price film fest is underway. Best wishes!

    Thanks, Haven't seen a post from Ya in a while, thought you were giving your fingers a vacation. I will let you and Vinc alone ...and just let me know if you get on another quest for Big Discs. I need to budge the TV ( Boy are those things gaining weight!!) to get the video hooked up and then I m in Elite/ES Heaven

    You should REALLY compare the two imputs on your TV. Put up various test patterns that would show both hanging/crawling dots (color bars - look at the borders between colors) and moire (finely spaced black and white lines that create false "rainbows"). I wouldn't say that the Sony's comb filter is better unless I conducted these tests [​IMG]
