Some interesting development; Pioneer definitely plays VCDs very well, but if a VCD is of not good quality [an oxymoron, right? ] then it exaggerates its flaws. I found that an old Philips [pre-HDMI] plays those VCDs via Onkyo 605 [Farouja processing] through components quite acceptable, perhaps better than the Pioneer. It smooths out the picture somewhat.
