    Could anyone tell me what the Y/C Correction and Gamma Adjustment features are on the Toshiba SD900E / SD9200 DVD Players. Should they be used? Are they a benefit on some transfers? What do they do?

    Also, given the choice of RGB Scart and S-Video connection on the SD900 / SD9200 Players. Which one is the better for a clearer, sharper, more lifelike (filmlike) image?

    Thank you,

    Martin.

    I'll take a stab.

    If I remember correctly, the Y/C adjustable parameter affects the color timing/gap. There is usually only a small amount of correction adjustment allowed so play with it and see which gives better results, if any.

    The Gamma adjustment allows the neutral/mid-tones to be boosted/cut without affecting the highs (brights) and lows(darks).

    I have no experience with the SCART. My set tops out at Component and S-Video.
