i tried a lot of noise filters, but this one is the one I prefer, albeit I must admit is a little bit too aggressive, but on my 55' it works pretty well!
An averaged unfiltered version, also if has less noise than a single capture, is barely watchable, in comparison to HD versions...
I'm open to suggestion about avisynth noise filters.

If your player was made by Pioneer (apologies if I missed this info), it may be introducing the halos. There was a discussion on the alt.video.laserdisc newsgroup about it (LD guru Kurtis B. participated in the discussion, IIRC). I'll post a link when I find it again.
I have several laserdisc players, but almost all are Pioneer... I also have a Philips, but it doesn't work very well... maybe it could be used to test few scenes to see if there are some halos.
As far as I know, the only good PAL laserdisc players brands are Pioneer and Philips, as Sony seems subpar, and Panasonic are really rare - all the others are only clones. I'm trying to find a Theta Data II, that should be a rebranded Panasonic clone - it could be one of the best PAL laserdisc ever made... maybe!

Actually, the only thing that laserdisc has more than the clip I posted, is rainbowing caused by the laserdisc comb filter...
