    Hi guys,

    Setup as follows:-

    Sky Digibox fed into a Pinacle PCTV rave TV card, PC hooked to a Panasonic PWD7 Plasma.

    What are the best settings to use in Dscaler to get the optimum picture quality, I.E what Deinterlace to use etc.

    Many thanks,
    Alex.

    I haven't used it for a long time, however, from recollection my preferred settings were:

    greedy 2 frame (default settings)
    auto video/film detection
    automatic format detect
    fallback to video on bad pulldown

    Mike.

    Leave it on auto detect. For video method uses tomsmocomp or greedy high motion (mocomp 2 has too many artifacts for me).

    Use judder terminator if your display refresh rate doesn't match the video.

    A little bit of sharpen filter can be useful if you have a large display.

    Run the auto-calibration routine with a suitable test pattern. (make sure you have the target boxes in the right areas with no overlaps).

    The latest version trashes my machine unfortunately ( first time in all the years I've been using it). I'm now currently on 4.1.7 beta for sweetspot but I might work my way up the later release versions.
    Then tweak the overlay settings for calibration if necessary.
