I have the last model of Sony 61 XBR that did not include an integral line doubler (deinterlacer). I think I bought it about 12 minutes before they became standard :)


Can a line doubler be inserted in the S-Video stream? I don't know enough about the NTSC format to know if its practical or not, but I assume not...


Can the S-Video format handle 60 fps, and if so, would the TV have a hope, or are they built to hardcoded sync rates?

The TV must be built from the ground up to be able to scan to the higher rates that line doublers output (~39Khz vs the ~15Khz of standard NTSC), so unless your TV manual specifically states that the set can handle 480p (line doubled, progressive) and 480i (standard interlaced NTSC), then NO - there's nothing you can do.


If you've lost your manual, check at www.sony.com ... they have all info you'll need. You'll need to know the exact model number as Sony always makes a whole pile of TV's with the same size. I was checking out the exact same thing about a friend's 32" Sony Wega only to find out that there are about 3 or 4 different types of 32" Wega's.

I have heard that some Sony XBR's have an Anamorphic squeeze feature for DVD's. I don't know about yours. If it does its not a good as a doubler but it would slightly reduce those peskey scan lines. You might do a search on "XBR" and see what it returns.
