"Crawler" Search seems to be just showing results for this month at the moment, so I figure I'll ask in case someone has either an answer or a bookmark to an older thread handy.
I've asked before about DVD playback over DVI, and have just gotten the DVI daughtercard to give it a look-see for myself after being dissappointed by the LG-3510a. Playback is to a HLN567 DLP RPTV at 720p.
I've done some preliminary calibration using the previously-linked TS patterns and DVE, and ran a few discs through to see what I thought. I like the overall color, and non-moving shots without hard straight lines look pretty good, but once stuff starts moving, edges (like faces, arms) start stairstepping quite noticeably. With title credits or thin-ish straight lines that are otherwise still, it's also apparent. The "Monster's Inc. Hair" test makes a very strong demonstration of the artifacting.
At the moment, my only frame of reference for comparison are the aforementioned 3510a and my original Sam. HD931. So far the 931 is winning, mainly because of this edge issue (and the 931 adds excessive EE!). OTHA, the MyHD is better than the 3510a (which not only has worse edges, but is blotchy and combs like heck). I don't have a decent DVI VGA card yet so I haven't tried the ffdshow route to compare.
So my question is (finally getting to the point): Is there any tweaking I can do to minimize/eliminate it? Is anyone else even experiencing it, and if not, would my powersupply be a possible culprit? (Ecube barebones SFF box; I get a lot of rolling diagonal interference with the MyHD's analog tuning & Svid that I suspect is due to the powersupply)
