Allan Jayne posted the same explanations I'd found..."Use AUTO for film source 1080i. This mode uses 3-2 pulldown recognition falling back on motion adaptive per-pixel for the best results."
So it looks like Film should use AUTO, which incurs the 54 mS delay with audio. :(
When I turn on the V/F indicator flag, AUTO accurately identifies video (V) and film (F). The User Manual says "the Lumagen processor allows the user to force deinterlacing to assume the source material is video"
. When I force DEINT to "VIDPP" or "VIDNC", I always get the "V" flag, even for Film sources. So, yes, VIDPP and VIDNC are for Video.
MEMA: genlock on, deint Auto (for Film)
MEMB: genlock off, deint VIDPP (for general video)
But after viewing HD concert clips tonight, I know the delay from AUTO is too much for me. And my audio system doesn't have any audio delay controls.
I'm trying to decide if I should keep trying to figure out these deinterlacing modes or try to return to my blissful ignorance of a few weeks ago when all I knew was that simple 1080p looks much better than 1080i.
Now that I've re-confused myself, I'm going to re-watch some film clips in the various modes.
