How do you turn off DNR on the 250's?

What if I'm using an ATI card?  :)

I also mentioned the softness of the picture with the PVR-250.  I  
turned off the DNR which seems to have made a noticeable improvement  
in picture quality but did nothing for the sharpness.  There are some  
MPEG-2 tuning parameters left but I am unsure what they do.
