The owners manual says it plays s-vhs but they may be noisy depending on the tape and it cannot support the full resolution of s-vhs tapes.

I've got a Panasonic DMP-BD70V player and I was interested in what you guys think of the VHS playback.
When I play Blu-Rays, everything is perfect. And even when I play my standard DVD's, the 1080p upscaling typically works great, and the image quality is quite good IMO. However, when I played several of my VHS tapes, the image quality was really crappy, and I even encountered some sound issues here and there.
On the other hand, based on his 3/9/10 post to this thread, T2k raved about his upscaled VHS tape playback, so I'm not sure what to make of that in relation to what I am experiencing.
I frankly got the DMP-BD70V player in part so we could occasionally play VHS tapes on one HDMI machine based on our extensive VHS collection, but I am now questioning this decision based on the really lackluster image quality I am seeing from the VHS section of this player.
If anyone has any insights and suggestions, or can share their upscaled VHS viewing exeriences, I would sure appreciate it.
Thanks in advance,
