I've started going backwards through this thread, but what I haven't seemed to be able to find much of yet is recommended usage of Mosquito NR, Fine Detail and Edge Enhancement. I realize it's possibly subjective and source-dependent, but, is there any? Or even, should they be used at
I rarely use those, it is very much source dependent.
But occasionally with a cable 480i formatted video, the 480i Encore channels come to mind, there can be some improvement with edge enhancement on old westerns like Gunsmoke.
Mosquito noise can be an issue with Laserdiscs and I sometimes engage that when using the Pioneer CLD702 Laserdisc player.
But for the most part these features can be left off.
I have 10 sources connected to the Duo, including the CLD102 (composite video) and an S-VHS VCR (S-Video). Some old tapes can benefit.
My Tivo connected OTA receives UCSD analog NTSC broadcasts which can benefit from some sharpening.
But in most cases it is not worth the effort.
In the end, experiment. It is nice to have the option.
