How it offers those options or corrects for the source data, built in FI or whatever, is way beyond my technical expertise. Everything is connected via HDMI.
The DVCD player used is the "old" Sony SDP‐S350 Blu‐Ray Disc Player upgraded to the latest firmware. To me, the blur is most noticeable when watching DVD movies.
As to the tips on the JVC, thank you. They're not cheap and I'd be mighty unhappy if I paid to purchase and install a new one and found the situation unchanged. Any other thoughts regarding the best settings to reduce motion blur from the current Sony VPL-VW60 would also be appreciated. It really makes a DVD like The Hurt Locker painful for me to watch.
Here is something for you to try, you said this was most apparent while watching DVD's, so I spent a lot of time playing and watching DVD on my HC4000 and found what worked the best for me in terms of the best picture possible. Your mileage may very but its worth a shot and post back and let me know if it made any difference. So I have 2 players on bluray and an old HDDVD player, so what I found that is since DVD's are 480P, having the player scale them up to 1080P was just not the cleanest, unless maybe you have an OPPO player which unfortunately I don't have, so tried lots of things and the one that made the biggest difference was settting my max output on the DVD player to 720P which is much less than the 1080P setting and once I did that the image for DVD's were good enough to watch, not as sharp as blu but really really good. Keep in mind I have my projector/receiver set to just pass through the signal so the projector doesn't scale the image either so I'm watching a 720P image on my screen. Only thing I can figure out is that it is easier to go from 480p to 720 then 480 to 1080p....at least worth a shot..Hope it helps and post back with your findings...
