I guess I can go back to using the Sony full time. the Insignia has a stupid system for subtitles. You hit the Subtitle button and they don't change. Instead you are put in a subtitle configuration routine that still eludes me. It's absurd, and worse than that, it's rather inscrutable.
If you found another solution, I 'm glad.
The "Pause Mode" is in the Setup > Screen Settings
menu btw. While the "Auto Display" options are located in the Setup > System Settings
menu which is further down on the Setup list (below the Audio, BD/DVD Viewing, Parental, and Music Settings).
These are the two Auto Display
options, as explained in the user manual...
On: Automatically displays information on the screen when changing the viewing titles, picture modes, audio signals, etc.
Off: Displays information only when you press DISPLAY.
Unless you're anal about wanting to know exactly what you're watching at every moment of time,
I recommend turning the Auto Display
. And using the Display
button on the remote to get that sort of info, only when you really need it.
I believe that the Pause Mode
setting simply controls how interlaced/video-based content is displayed when you hit the Pause button on the remote. One setting (can't remember which) will use a simple line-doubling deinterlacing routine to display the image, which makes the picture look more "jagged". While the other will attempt to display a full resolution frame by combining two video "fields" together.
I believe this applies mainly to video-based discs, encoded in interlaced formats such as 480i or 1080i, and less so to "film-based" discs encoded progressively at 480p, 720p or 1080p. Most Blu-ray movies are encoded progressively
at 1080p 24fps. SD-DVD movies can be encoded either way (480i or 480p).
This is probably more than you needed or wanted to know. There's more info on the above though in the following links.
