Mike and James,

Can you two collaborate and try to fix the smoothing filter pixel flicker issue. When I use the smoothing filter with HD Retrovision cables I noticed that sometimes I get some small pixel flickering on some games. I noticed it a lot when playing jRPG’s with static text on screen. I emailed Mike about this issue and below was his response.

“I know exactly what you’re talking about. I think it’s due to low
level noise in the video so the interpolator sometimes decides the
pixel should be on or off depending on how much random noise there is.
I tried to fix it in the new hardware rev with more power supply
filtering but it didn’t seem to make a difference.”
