Description of problem or question:

Thanks

Probably one of the noise filters. Posting the logs for the encode would help us determine which one.

already started a Linux install on the old Laptop so will need to rip it again to get a log file, reading though the documentation, where are these settings so I can fiddle with them myself?

Filters tab. Turn everything off. Or, at least the denoise filter. Deinterlace can affect grain if the source is interlaced (DVD). Keeping it from being removed before the encoder sees is is important.

On the Video tab, the encoder tune for x264 and x265 both have a "grain" setting that will adjust for grainy source to better maintain the grain, as well.
