    What does Y/V mean in 3D Y/V digital comb filter?
    How is this different from a 3D digital comb filter?

    Was that Y/C perhaps? Y is luminance (brightness) and C is chrominance (colour). It is the very job of a comb filter to seperate this two parts of a composite video signal, so any and every comb filter would be a "Y/C" comb filter.

    The term Y/C is superfluous and does not add any more detail to the verbal description of the comb filter, 3D tells as much of the story as most advertisers care to. While 3D comb filters do vary in quality, the presence of the word Y/C does not help you distinguish this.
