    Hello,

    Maybe anyone can have an idea. I have Philips 963SA (.22 soft).
    Watching it on Panasonic 32/PD30 CRT via component. There are
    2 problems:

    1) On PAL interlaced on many discs there is a white broken horizontal line at the lower part of the screen. Anybody experienced that? Does software upgrade helps?
    2) On NTSC progessive (mostly do it via PAL->NTSC conversion), shadows are too dark and greenish (gamma is set to -3 to fix overall darkness). In general progressive is much better - more smooth cinema-like. But cannot solve that problem with color and tone...

    Thank you in advance.

    sounds like you've got one of the many faulty units floating around :(

    My November 2002 model shows non of these faults - send it back! The green tint is due to impedance mis-match on the component board.

    You should'nt need to mess with settings to get rid of green tints, and nor should you have strange white lines - definate defects IMHO.
