	Well, I have looked up the elusive meanings of the dnr settings and 
tried them out.  The dnr_spatial would be the one I would want to play with, 
but it's already set to 0.  Increasing the value definately makes the 
horizontal fuzziness worse, but no tweaking made it better.  I tried the 
dnr_mode to off, thinking that maybe the filter was stuck on something else.  
No dice.

	Basically, it's just bad enough to make watching "live tv" or recording 
shows inferior enough to make you want to watch the real thing, rather than the 
recorded version.
