Is this something that can be adjusted on a 4x3 set or is it only on HD? I would love to try this, especially on the season of All in the Family that Shout screwed up.
Last night I watched a Smothers Brothers Show episode from Time Life and it looked like it should!
If you're talking about the signal processing that makes stuff look shot-on-tape, I think that's only on HDTVs. Maybe some high-end CRTs had something like that, but I never had a professional tube TV to know.
It's that "motion smoothing" software stuff that's usually switched on by default at the store. Probably intended mostly for sporting events, but if left on for movies, it makes them look like they were shot on a camcorder instead of on film.
