This is also the Laser Disc player I use. In the MANIAC post, I mentioned the problem I 'may' be having with this model. Paff had threw in the info about "composite" vs "S-Video" which to me makes sense. I never had a chance to test it on my BIG SCREEN. It is gone! I will never see it again!! SOLD!!! BUt I'm in the process of buying a new one. I have narrowed down my choice of TV's. It will be a 32" screen. And it has a 3-Line comb filter. Which brand...not sure yet. I've been hearing a HUGE pull for HITACHI and SONY. But that's news to me. Not really the SONY but the HITACHI part. I was speaking to a few TV repair guys and they told me ALL new TUBE screens suck. But Sony and HITACHI don't suck as much. Whatever.... It all comes down to my wallet, and my wallet can't afford a WEGA, or 3D combs, or another HDTV. But while researching the TV set and trying to find info on Paff's info, I stumbled across 6 different people who were COMPLAINING and confused about the: "Red, blue, green swirls they are getting in their BLACKS with the PIONEER CLD D504" I didn't want to "register" to respond, so tough tittie for them. But I'm POSITIVE it is because they were using S-Video. I will probably buy my set over the Thanksgiving Holidays when the sales should be all over the place. But I think this player SPECIFICALLY, will show the 'rainbow" swirls in the blacks when hooked through S-Video. (probably most players, but this model popped up a lot, which makes me think its more noticable) Damn!! I wish I had tested, but in the next few days, I will return my results. I'm curious from another post if "trespoochies" was having this problem or how they have their LD connected. We have the same model. Anyways, I was just shocked at the EXACT SAME DESCRIPTION of the problem I described. Everyone assumed it was just LASER ROTT. Even when dude said he just bought TITANIC, they chalked it up as LASER ROTT! SUCKERS!!!! Thanks Paff. Can't wait to post my results!!!! The web...fucking amazing!!!
