The only quality tests are taking the video signal from an XBox, putting
it through a RF modulator, then demodulating it using the tuner?
What's wrong with in addition just connecting a normal SVideo cable
between a DVD player and the input on the card? Couldn't get the cables?
"The adaptive comb filter can choose between 2D and 3D filters depending
on which is ideal given the source content. However, the comb filter can
only be used for composite and coaxial video input, not S-Video"
Okay... Someone needs to explain to these guys how video works. They
seem to be saying it's a shame the comb filter doesn't work on SVideo.
