Figure this is the right place to ask. As you probably know, there is not a great demand for Laserdiscs these days and they are dirt cheap. So I grabbed a player and a few discs because why not, I always wanted one.
However, the picture quality is, quite franky, really, really bad. The picture is extremely fuzzy. Against black, you can see all the composite colors and whatnot. You know, the reds and blues that make up a tube picture. Now, this is old tech, but just to make sure I wasn't crazy, I popped in a VHS tape of the same movie I was watching, and the picture was crystal clear in comparison. No fuzz. Being outdone by VHS is kind of embarrassing, I know that isn't supposed to be normal.
Does anyone know if this issue is likely connected to the player (this apparently matters a great deal), the discs themselves, or something else?
