In our A-B tests (there were only two of us for this testing) we were playing 'Driven' (2 copies, on on each HTPC playing using and Extron switcher box). The video quality of this DVD is QUITE high, and there is a LOT of motion. Neither one of us specifically noticed any differences in motion panning. On Monday, we will specifically look for any of those differences, but if there are any, they are going to be VERY subtle for us not to have noticed in the first round.
The "temporal filter" is part of the deinterlacing algorithms and to properly test the performance of this feature you will need a video based DVD. You should not be able to see much difference on a properly mastered film based DVD such as Driven.
Duell, when you run these tests, are you using a projector or just a monitor. The projector will also show more flaws in the PQ just because the display is larger. I do this at home to test some DVD's where I do see some flaws. I first watch on HTPC with dlp projector and if there is something I see I switch to my 21"CRT on a different PC. If I still see something then I come to the conclusion that the DVD has artifacts or other digital flaws from the transfer.
