    when i watch a dvd on the toshiba i get a lot of picture noise on the screen,especially on dark or black areas.tv and freeview reception are fine.i thought dvd playback would produce a rock solid picture but it's disappointing to say the least.anything i can do to remove the 'noise'? thanks in advance :)

    What interconnect are you using? With HDMI it's very good, so it's probably down to the source or interconnect.

    it's connected using an ixos scart lead.also it is an old pioneer dv-717 dvd player.playback on my jvc dvd recorder using hdmi is very much improved,maybe it's time to go for a denon 1920 or another hdmi dvd player?

    Sounds like it. I'm using a cheap upscaling player (Tosh 350) so you don't need to spend a lot to get a decent picture from DVD.

    Have you connected the Scart to Scart 1 on the TV, and after looking at the DVD instructions have you set the DVD to output 16:9 standard widescreen and AV1 to RGB, if not this would have an impact on the quality. Looking at your items you already state you have a Tosh Sd350 DVD?. Note also the JVC recorder should be set to output 1080i for the best picture over HDMI.

    So no point the manufacturer's producing state of the ART DVD players then.

    Have you experienced the PQ from a Denon 3910 or a Pioneer 989 DVD player?

    To make effective upscaling work the DVD player needs to have an effective video bandwidth above 6Mhz, I can see a sub £500 having this level of sophisticated video circuitry.

    Bleak house for example was recorded in HD format then down-converted for SD DVD, so when played on a high end player and upscaled the quality is well breathtaking!

    I'm sure the Tosh is very good for the price, but there's a big jump in PQ and picture detail with the high end players especially when you upscale and find no additional picture noise or video distortions only miles more information and pictures that leap out of the screen!

    I am in total agreement with you re PQ, but why spend crate loads of money on a DVD player with fantastic up-scaling only to see it defaunt in the next few months when HD-DVD and Blu-Ray come out?

    Yes it's fine for the money. As others have pointed out, you can get better PQ by spending more, but for me it's just an inexpensive stop-gap while I wait for an HD capable player.

    How about the Toshiba HD850, that looks very good and reasonably priced.
    My Sony DVD Player via component is amazing, no noise or anyting on the [email protected] version.
