Does anyone know how or if Genesis chips or similar processors are routinely used to switch TV circuits such as scanning velocity modulation on and off? SVM doesn't seem to be used at all during movies from what I've observed on my month-old Philips 64PH9905. But on some live programs, such as golf, the effect of SVM on blades of grass is horrific. SVM (I'm assuming) creates thousands of stem-like images at certain focal distances from greens. I'm looking into best way to shut SVM off, and my CD-ROM service manual isn't helping.

A little research on the web indicated some Sony models switch off SVM in movie mode.

Curious how Genesis chip(s) might do the same. That is, what might it be detecting and how that signal is used?
