Just got the email, and plan to download the new build. Although my 004 cannot yet take 1080p (will upgrade early next year), I'd like to see how well the Lumagen does 1080i to 1080/24pfs.
|As of the 110705 sw release the deinterlacing mode command was updated to add some HD deinterlacing modes. The command is found in the menu under IN->CONFIG->CNTRL->DEINT->MODE . If you're on an HD input you can set it for SD or HD sources while if you're using an SD input you'll only have a setting available for SD deinterlacing. The 2 settings for SD are "AUTO" and "VIDEO". The "AUTO" setting automatically changes between film mode and video mode based on what type of source material is detected. The "VIDEO" mode forces the SD deinterlacer into a video deinterlacing algorithm no matter what type of source material is detected and may be preferable for some video sources.
The HD deinterlacer currently has 3 settings. "AUTO", "VIDPP" and "VIDNC". The "AUTO" mode automatically chooses the optimal algorithm based on what source material is detected. The "VIDPP" mode forces the use of a per-pixel motion adaptive video deinterlacing algorithm which eliminates/minimizes combing and provides for very good detail. The "VIDNC" setting forces a video deinterlacing algorithm which completely eliminates any combing but is does not give as detailed a picture as the VIDPP mode.
