    Hi Will,

    I would love to see the same even on my uncalibrated monitor. Anybody, please?
    I'm not actually sure what kind of difference a scaler generates. I here phrases like "much improved" etc but this says little. Do they provide a Pixel Plus type effect?

    Cheers,

    Damo

    Much of the benefit you get with good video processors is seen not on static images but on moving ones. Screen shots may show you noise removal or jaggie removal but not motion or the actual affect on a viewed moving image that the former may have.

    It's pretty much impossible to take a screen shot of a moving image without getting blurring and as soon as you pause a DVD you have created a static image and most videp processors will attach that in a different manner to a moving one......

    Hi Gordon,

    I mentioned a while a go that the XDE does exhibit some unnatural motion 'blur' on slow pans and the like. Perhaps a scaler can sort this out? Or perhaps the XDE is doing some kind of frame rate conversion that it shouldn't?

    Cheers,

    Damo
