    I've got a 27" FV series Wega. I was wondering if the TV will upconvert composite to S-Video on the outputs? I'm going to be dubbing some laser discs to SVHS and would like to use my Wegas comb filter since it's probably much better than the one in my VCR (JVC 7800).

    Thanks!

    Aaron,
    If your set has S-video output, it would be safe to assume that whatever enters the set on composite and exits via S-video would be processed by it's comb filter.

    I would not bother, in light of the fact that you have a JVC 7800 vcr.

    The 7*** and 9*** series JVC S-video vcrs both have the same excellent comb filters, at least as good as the 3DY-C ones in my previous Sony XBR, Hitachi SBX, and current HW40 tv sets. I've done A/B comparisons of comb filter on these sets vs the ones in my 9*** series JVC, and the JVC is at least as good. Many folks with front projectors or older high end rptvs with lesser comb filters use these JVC vcrs as ntsc TV tuners because of their excellent comb filters.

    Steve,

    Thanks... I wasn't sure which one would be better. If the 7800's is as good as you say it is, it'll save some setup. I haven't had a chance to compare the two yet, perhaps in a couple of weeks when I get around to dubbing some lasers to tape I'll post my findings.

    Thanks,
    Aaron
