Hi Everyone,

I have the Sony HS10 and a Panasonic RP82. I am connecting the two with 25' component video cables.


I recently did some testing with the AVIA disk on my pj. In the video calibrations section under "Special Tests" are 2 tests called "Moving Zone Plate" Hi Res and Lo Res. I tested both 480P and 480I out of my DVD player, and I was floored by the difference!!! You might guess that 480P was a lot better than 480I. Well that wasn't the case, it was the other way around. 480I showed the diagonal lines much better than 480P. 480P showed them more as a checkerboard pattern. On static resolution patterns, they show about the same quality, but on the moving patterns the 480P was messed up!


Here is 480P looking at horizontal part of test:

Here is 480I looking around the same area:

Here is 480P looking at vertical part of test:

I'm requesting that anyone else with the avia disk please run the test and let me know what you see. The Static Zone Plate test will show you what it should look like. What ever equipment you have, Any pj, and any dvd player, I would like to hear your results. DVI, Component, S-Video, composite, whatever.


Also, If anyone has a clue as to why I'm getting the results I get, I would love to hear it. I thought the Panny RP82 with it's Faroujda deinterlacer would be better than what the HS10 has. In the RP82's defense, I did see better quality on movies using 480P.


Thanks,

Ed

one thought - for the proressive image - is 3:2 pulldown being used on a source it shouldn't be?


btw: When my projector arrives, I'll be doing the same calibrations, but using a RP91 instead of an RP82.

I don't know if it is or not. I'll see if I can find out tonight.
