Been running 100% S-Video in my HT (sources are primarily TiVo and DVD, which both output S-Video natively) since I first figured out which cable was which. I could definitely see the difference between S-Vid and composite, even on my old 27" TV. I upgraded to a non-XBR Wega a few months ago, and have been really enjoying everything about it, but I noticed immediately that in scenes with a lot of horizontal motion I was getting some 'combing' effects (similar to 3:2 pulldown's effect from DVD) as the two fields of the interlaced NTSC image struggled to be coherent together. This is a subtle effect, and is only really noticeable on medium-slow movement; quick motion is blurry anyway, and super-slow movement appears to give my brain ample time to resolve the interlacing. It occurred to me today that by using S-Video I'm bypassing the Wega's vaunted Digital Reality Creation comb-filter, and on thinking back, when viewing the Wega's straight RF-in interpretation of my live cable signal (which I don't usually do, preferring to timeshift via TiVo), I don't remember seeing the comb effect. I can't test this sitting at my PC here, but does anyone know whether using my Radio Shack S-Video-to-composite adapter on the S-Vid feed from my receiver, and then letting the Wega's DRC do its magic on the resulting composite signal has any chance of improving my image? I can test this tonight, but I was wondering if anyone had followed this mad path of logic in the past. -Rich ------------------ Technophilia is like hemophilia...
