    guys

    i posted here a month or so ago asking for a manual and basically gathered that it wasn't worth having.

    the review of the player on this site states a stack of tweaks that can be carried out - moz noise, pure cinema.....

    are they adjustable from the menus?

    i have at present 5 tabs at the top of the screen but they only seem to allow basic stuff - digital in/out, svhs/comp/etc and a few other bits but none of the tech stuff.

    any help would be appreciated......

    Try pressing the "video setup" (I think) button on the remote. It's second from the left just between the function controls (play, pause etc) and the numbers.

    What do you need?
    A manual?
    I'll dig mine out and send you (copies) of what you need if you want.

    Memory must be failing. Correction:

    Try pressing the "video adj" button on the remote. It's second from the left just below the jog dial, above the function controls (play, pause etc) and the numbers.

    Player settings:

    Pure Cinema - only relevant for Progressive Scan output from NTSC titles via the component output. Turns pro-scan on or off, or leaves it in "Auto" whereby the player detects a flag on the disc to tell it whether or not to deinterlace the image. Has no effect on S-video or composite signals, nor with PAL (eg R2) discs.

    The four noise reductions - as their names would suggest, they are noise reducers. Best left at zero (unless you prefer it otherwise). See your manual for more info about what they are.

    Sharpness settings. Above the middle setting they artificially sharpen the image; below middle they soften it. Leave them in the middle (unless you prefer it otherwise).

    White level - same effect as adjusting contrast on your TV.
    Black Level - same as adjusting brightness on the TV.
    Use these two to make the player's output match the picture you get from other, non-adjustable sources (like regular TV, VCR, etc) so that you don't have to tweak the TV every time you watch a DVD.

    Black Setup - you will want 0 IRE, not 7.5.

    Hue - changes the colour balance of the picture

    Chroma Level - same as adjusting "colour" on your TV
    As with white & black levels - set this to match other sources.

    Chroma Delay - A TV picture is always in two parts - a black and white detailed image, overlaid with a less detailed colour signal which "paints" the b&w picture to make it into colour. This control moves the colour part of the signal left or right in relation to the underlying black & white structure. Use it to correct inaccuracies in the TV where, say, a bright red object's colour is slightly to the left or right of its shape.

    Lighty, Nigel has covered it quite well, however, send me your address and I'll post my manual to you to copy and return at your own speed. Ok?
