I had awful vertical judgger recently watching a movie that I recorded on my DirecTV DVR. The movie was Sherlock Holmes Game of Shadows (good flick) and the PQ was excellent off the 1080i source ... except during wide sweeping pans (which this film has a lot of). I would get that jerkiness in the material that I believe is judder.
I have my Edge setup in this way:
Source X --> Edge --> video direct to Panasonic ST50 and audio direct to Denon AVR-2807 --> which then feeds a Rotel RMB-1075.
When the Source is my DirecTV DVR (HR21) and I am watching a movie I get this nasty judder. Blu Ray (from PS3) and HD-DVD (from XA2) does not seem to have this issue.
On the TV I have motion smoothing off (as well as all noise reduction). For my DirecTV source -- I do have contrast boosted, as well as some edge and detail enhancement and noise reduction enabled.
I wanted to see if the Edge could help reduce or eliminate this unsightly judder. I read on post 1 of this thread about this feature:
Film-based content, which originated at 24 frames per second, is broadcast at 50 or 60Hz. Anchor Bay's Progressive Cadence Detection can lock on to the original 3:2 cadence in the broadcast, reacquiring the original 24 frames per second. This signal can then be output at a source-locked 24Hz eliminating the judder that existed in the original broadcast signal. Progressive Cadence Detection can be used with 480p, 576p, 720p and 1080p input signals.
It appears that to use this feature I need to disable 1080i output on the DirecTV box, and instead output 720p -- and let the Edge do its work. Is this correct? Would this help with the Judder? Any other suggestions?
