I just emailed S&W and asked them if there's a way to change resolutions from the Shoebox. I'll let you know what they say.

S&W got back to me. They tell me the Interpolator 2 GOLD is a discontinued and unsupported product.

BUT He sent me the manual for the Shoebox. There's a installer menu and it tells me how to get into it.

Substitute SCANFLAG for the password "‘RODERICK" and select OK. The front page should now read Installer mode instead of a blank line.

SWEET!!

Thank you Snell and Wilcox!

Cool you got it working.

OK, I get 960i, but why would you use 704 for h, Jeremy? Are you just cropping 8 pixels off each side or something?

EDIT - 120 hertz interlaced would be an odd number of film frames, too... 5 interlaced fields per frame, or two different film frames getting split between two different video frames (so interlaced) every 1/5 of a second. I think you'd want to use 960i @ 96hz, which would be 4 fields per film frame, and therefore no judder or interlaced frames.

Call this a Quasi scaler. It only has a few resolutions, only one higher than 60Hz and this is the only one.

For $42 500 this is a pretty limited box Laughing

I'd love to see 720x960@72/96/120 but it can't.

Not sure if this disassembles the 3:2 and re-interlaces or not. Wouldn't 120Hz work for OK for 24fps?

24x5=120? The interlacing does throw a curve at that abit...

I'm not seeing much judder but I'm not paying too much attention to it. I can tell you I have ringing up the left side. I should look and see if I can shift the picture to the right.

Wow, no sh*t it's limited. That thing was so hot sh*t back in the day, and yeah - a fortune. Interesting.

Come to think it, there may not be any judder. 1 out of 5 video frames would have two film frames on it, but I'm not sure it would matter in this case.

Is it possible you are looking at preprogrammed resolutions? Maybe you have to make new ones.

That's what I was wondering so I asked S&W if this box can do that. Let's see what they say.
