    On the Elite 79 LD there is V-DNR option.Anyone notice much difference on the standard setting on or off?

    Ive tried turning it on and off a few times and couldn't really see a difference

    I notice it on some lasers more than others. I notice it more in dark scenes than any other. On the really good laser transfers, I don't seem to notice it. But on Raiders, and the original THX star wars, It does seem to reduce noise better. You can also go in and increase the level of noise reduction, which seems to help. Also, you didn't say how you had yours hooked up, but I believe it will only work using the S-video connection.

    Crank it way the hell up and you'll see yukky artifacts. I usually leave it on "Standard" on my CLD-99 and CLD-D704.

    Thanks

    I have it hooked up by the coaxial versus the svideo...chapter 1 verse 1; the holy book of LaserDiscs and the gospel according to Rachael

    My Wega has a better comb filter than my LD player

    Guess thats why I don't notice it....but I have it on standard anyways
