Bush's tie is going nuts right now! :)


Any calibration tips to minimize it?


Thx!

Should we assume you are watching on a DLP-based set? In general it is easiest to see rainbows on such a black-white line pattern. There is not much you can do about it in general other than write Bush and ask him to wear a tie with a nice colorful pattern :).

In that case he would have to sell his tv in order to pay his tax bill, but at least the rainbows would be gone. :D

Don't worry either, the 13" B&W you'll have to watch won't have any.

Cross-color. An artifact of composite video encoding and/or decoding that involves the erroneous interpretation of luma information as color. The cross-color artifact appears frequently when luma information having a frequency near that of the color subcarrier appears as a swirling color rainbow pattern. [from C. Poynton's 2003 digital video/HDTV book]


B&W stripe spacing is based on frequency, so narrowly spaced stripes approximate the color subcarrier. -- John

That's not true. The optical effects that cause our eyes to see color patterns

on b&w images would still come thru on a b&w set (assuming all other things

are equal... resolutions and such). It's a trick of your eyes themselves,

not the set.

That may be true, but I still insist there is a real eye-based optical

phenomenon that allows our eyes to see colors from black and white images.

You can replicate this illusion in the real world even when you're not

looking at an image on a video screen. Mister Wizard taught me so :D

I wasn't being literal. I was joking about how that's all he would be able to afford if he voted Democrat.

Not too many trees to hug here in Manhattan. I do have an affinity for parking meters, however.

In another couple of years, you won't even have parking meters to hug.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

The title really does sound like the set up for a bad riddle,

and this thread has already taken a turn for the silly.
