I just purchased a Mits 60805 HD-ready TV. The installation tech said I should use the composite video inputs v.s. the s-video inputs for the DSS box and my S-VHS VCR because the s-video bypasses the Mits comb filter. Does anyone know if this is really true?

I tried it both ways. I can't really tell the difference with a varying display (movies etc.). However, with a text display like the DSS guide or the VCR OSD, the s-video inputs seem allot better to me -- less dot crawl and less jittering of the picture.

Any recommendations?


P.S. I have the 60805 set to 480p v.s. 960i.

Yea, here's a recommendation. Fire your installer. Then, instead of using your svideo or your composite, get yourself great line doubler (iscan) for $600 and hook it into the HD ports.

If not, use the s video. The internal circuitry of my mits suck. I use it strictly as a monitor (with my DTC100).
