Technical issue with video processing

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have my receiver's video processing engaged, and after watching one race today, and the start of the next, I noticed the cars only turn one direction.

Can this be fixed?

(Briefly, this morning, I saw the end of some weird European race, apparently it's later there, and the video may have been working then, they turned both directions, but maybe that was just some weird European glitch.)

Not sure if this helps, but I have the "auto racing is NOT a sport" option selected on my AVR

I think they turn in the opposite direction in the southern hemisphere. In Europe, they just don't know which way to turn, it's why nothing ever gets done there.

Interesting hypothesis.

Did you know that the direction of water going down a drain is not usually dependent on the Earth's rotation? I have read that only works if the water if very still when you open the drain (and you have to be able to open the drain without disturbing the water.)

Anyway...sorry for the silly thread

I like the occasional silly thread here on AVS. It can serve as a tension breaker and mental vacation from constant bickering about equipment specs, subjective opinions, and unsubstantiated claims. I seem to remember reading a few things in college about just how beneficial a occasional hearty laugh can be to your overall well being. I think it was one of those things that even the best psychologists can't explain, similar to why a professional athlete can go into a slump.

You probably don't have the latest bi-directional HDMI cables. They're still a bit expensive, but if you ask one of your BestBuy sales associates they will hook you right up.

This can be a real problem for plasma flat panel owners whose displays are more subject to "turn in".

Best practice is to rotate your display stand 180 degrees every month to even this out. (Use a mirror for viewing.)

I drove a real Indy Car at a Mario Andretti racing school. Going to the school was a gift from my wife. We only got to turn the car left because the class was not based on circuit course racing. It was a lot of work once I got the car up to speed and was putting out some 150mph lap times. Turning left and going fast is much more difficult in real life than it looks on TV. It's a mental work out and the G force made my body sore for several days after the racing school. I can't imagine needing to turn the car both left and right. Maybe I can look for a circuit racing school to go to some day.

Sounds like a nice experience, SS. I met John Andretti here in Co Springs during the Pike's Peak Hill Climb fan event. They were selling hot wheels cars that were like his IRL ride so I bought one and got it autographed. He seemed like a nice guy.

Of course, it's the Unsers who are famously associated with Pike's Peak. I forget how many of them have driven some car or other during the PPHC. But it's at least five, and that goes way back.
