Is anyone using a video processor for their HX929 or 950? I feel like the sony has horrendous noise reduction built in and was looking for something that works better. I was considering the DVDO or possibly the receiver route with an Onkyo 818. From my research it seems like Algolith's Flea and mosquito were the pinnacle when it came to noise reduction. What would be my best option?

Can't really help but why do you need noise reduction?

You can't get Directv to fix it? Why use them if they can't? Only reason I use them is better than cable...

And what's mosquito noise?

I am afraid video processing on most tvs are terrible. Some tvs get scaling and deinterlacing ok but has yet to see any with decent noise reduction. they usually blur image to take out noise. I own the algolith mosquito hdmi unit and so far I have not seen anything better. Algolith sold its technologies to HQV. Apperantly HQV reon/realta/vida chips use partial algolith flea/mosquito algorithms. Algolith units were specificaly designed for mosquito noise processing. HQV chips do de-interlacing,scaling,cms,noise reduction and does not have enough processing power and memory to implement complete algolith algorithms.

When I first got my algolith mosquito hdmi hooked up, I didnt see much of a difference on side by side comparisons. Then I removed it from my setup, It didnt take me long to notice the picture quality suffered a lot without it. Now I cant stand watching fios hd, streaming, dvds without algolith in the chain
