I mean that with respect, I really do. These repeated threads about OMG DNR/EE/grain are just ridiculous. Sure SOME of it MIGHT have it's place, but give me a break already. The stuff is for the buying masses, hence the product produced. Maybe someday the studio's are going to produce A/Vphile quality stuff, but you're <0.5% of the market, if that much.
Hate to burst your bubble but Xylon takes direct digital caps from the disc not via a camera. So no factors that are associated with that method of screen grabs.
I have watched several BR discs that have the DNR on my lowly system and can see the problems, even the more 'subtly' scrubbed ones. As well on some of my buddies systems that are far fancier and larger than mine and the 'minor' DNR becomes really obvious.
After having watched some of the titles Xylon has been cool enough take screen caps of I can verify that those shots are not trumped up nor isolated to those specific scenes, unless noted otherwise.
You do not need an absurdly expensive system to see these issues. Heck this stuff is obvious on my 17" LCD Samsung monitor I bought, oh 3 or 4 years ago.
Again there is no excuse not to provide the best picture, they actually spend more time and money to apply the DNR to appease the masses that have their sharpness cranked to high and have tons of video post processing applied with torch mode color, oohh pretty clipped bloomin over saturated colors!
"Maybe someday the studio's are going to produce A/Vphile quality stuff, but you're <0.5% of the market, if that much." And one can reply in return, why even bother buying into HD if one is satisfied with 1080P SD quality, keep buying DVDs and play them with an upconverter.
