When watching "The Haunting" on my xg 135 FP with the 4:3 screen at 1024 x 768 @72Hz and the widescreen locked option checked in DVD Genie 4.00 to maintain anamorphic display of this disc on a 750 Athlon Marquee DC HTPC,
I noticed several artifacts:
The opening scene panning the outside of the apartment building shows small diagonal lines at the edges of the building and the outside windows, brick lines and story levels. The scene showing the outside gate to the mansion has horizontal artifacts superimposed at the gate. The inside mansion scenes showing the stairs has horizontal lines apparent as the stairs are panned upward. Also panning the multicolored carpet causes some "swarm of mosquitos" blurring artifacts. And the bedroom scene of the first guest shows artifacts, like shimmering around the borders of the round leaded glass windows. Any idea what is causing this?

Mark -

I don't have a Radeo though I've heard of the backwards check box.

But the artifacts you describe could all be typical of using a video deinterlace method and _not_ doing 3:2 pulldown removal.
