-- Why shouldn't I get a Showstopper/ReplayTV? (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=1439)
I have a 32" Panasonic TV. I have turned down the sharpness control to reduce the pulsating but I do not have a DVD player to properly tune the TV.
So you think that I was fooled by a bad digital channel feed (eg, from Wimbledon) into believing that the Tivo Best Quality mode degraded the picture with pixellizations? I compared the same frames (again from Wimbledon) recorded directly from the cable box onto a VHS VCR and from Tivo's Best Quality mode. The small but noticeable amount of pixellization found on the VCR when Venus Williams was running seemed to be a bit more noticeable in the Tivo frame. I don't know how Replay would handle this. As I mentioned, the Replay/Showstopper did not seem to make the pulsating worse in the Highest quality mode, though it was definitely worse in the lower 2.
I guess that if I choose one then change my mind due to new software/hardware, it will make a nice anniversary present for my parents in January.
