First I just want to thank the developers for an awesome skin. I have a question regarding the video upscaling options. First under settings/video/player there is an option to perform software upscaling using bicubic/lanczos/etc. Then if one plays a movie you can hit the menu options and bring up a different screen that lets you modify video parameters including bilinear/next neighbor/bicubic. My question is why are their two different locations for these settings and which one has priority?

Ie if I set /settings/video/player to use software upscaling with lanczos does that then override the settings when playing a movie and selecting bicubic?

thanks

Could someone clarify for me a question regarding the options for video upscaling. First under Settings/Video/Player there is an option to perform high quality software video upscaling. I enabled this and selected lanczos.

However when I then play a movie and hit the menu button and select the video options it does not show lanczos as an option and only shows bilinear/bicubic/next neighbor. Why are there two different locations to change the video upscaling method and which one has priority?

thanks

This is the setting to apply to all videos (i.e. the default).

This is the setting for the video you are currently. So you can have a default setting, but specific settings for different videos (and the settings are saved and used next time you watch the same video.
