    Could anyone tell me what the Y/C Correction and Gamma Adjustment features are on the Toshiba SD900E / SD9200 DVD Players. Should they be used? Are they a benefit on some transfers? What do they do?

    Also, given the choice of RGB Scart and S-Video connection on the SD900 / SD9200 Players. Which one is the better for a clearer, sharper, more lifelike (filmlike) image?

    Thank you,

    Martin.

    Can only answer one of you question......RGB is regarded the better connection over S-VIDEO, but the models you have mentioned both have component video outputs, which is better still, depending on your TVs connections connect....Component if available if not RGB then S-VIDEO and Composite as a last resort.

    I was awaiting Gordon Fraser to jump in here!.

    But in the meantime...

    The Y/C delay adjustments are used when the colour(chroma) part of the picture is slightly off from the black and white(Luminence) bit.
    When these don't match up, things like bright red colours appear to smudged to one side of things. Or peoples faces may have a green/BW line down one side of there faces, where the colour info should be.

    Chroma level adjusts how much colour there is in the picture, ie how saturated a picture is.

    The gamma adjustments helps if your display has trouble showing detail in dark shaded scenes etc.

    On most normal sized TVs these adjustments don't seem to do much. But as the screen size goes up, these adjustments can be handy to correct a mis-adjusted display.

    Hope this helps
