I was just reading a post on AVS forums, about a guy asking for some advice about his Barco 808. I was curious because it turned out he was running it with no scaler. He was just connecting it to his DVD player via Svideo!.(on port 2) I just HAD to try it. I went direct from my Pioneer 737, via a Svideo lead. After setting it all up (Geo/converg/contrast) etc. I then flicked between my Quadscan Elite running in tripling mode, and the direct feed. Well it was like the Cine 7 at the "Event". The picture went from a jittery black lined picture, to a super smooth clear picture with much more detail!. I expect the reason why you see more detail is due to the way CRTs work. On the interlaced direct feed, the picture lines move/twitter. Standing further back in the room, the image didn't seem so bad. The reason why you can see more detail via the QSE must be due to progressive scanning. This stops the "twittering" in it's tracks, and the scaling gets rid on the big black lines. The biggest advantage of this demonstration, is that i was able to show the wife why you need a processor for a CRT. She was quite amazed at the difference. I then slipped in the fact that i was maybe after a new "Centre Stage" processor soon. And that it was going to make the image even better!. I will now start my demo's using the Svideo feed first, then switch over to the QSE!!!
