    Hi folks,

    I recently purchased a Pioneer DV-380-s to try out progressive scan on my 37PF9986. Unfortunately the results have been far from good. In light backgrounds the characters' skin tones take on a very garish green tinge. This is also noticable on a dark background but it is not so obvious. I have tried to adjust the settings on both the Philips and the DVD player with very little improvement.

    Has anybody else come across a similar problem and if so is there a solution?

    Cheers,

    Tir

    Hi again,

    Has nobody come across this type of problem before?

    I am beginning to think the TV is at fault rather than the DVD player. I have a mac mini I can connect via DVI and as an experiment I dropped the resolution to 800x600 and played the same DVD on it and I got the same results which is essentially green lines on characters skin tones etc. It is also very noticable in panoramic landscape shots such as those on the LOTR DVD's.

    I also tested the DVD player via RGB scart and there was no sign of this problem. It only seems to occur via the DVI I input on the TV.

    Has anybody had a similar experience? Can it be fixed by an adjustment somewhere or will I have to contact the shop I purchased it from?

    Any feedback is much appreciated.

    Tir

    I had a similar problem - greens everywhere. The problem was not the tv or the DVD but the cables. I confirmed the cable problem by switching them round to find which one was causing the problem. May not in the end be your problem but worth a try before blaming the tv /dvd.

    Thanks for the advice sbheaven.

    Thinking along these lines I purchased a new component to VGA cable rather than using the one supplied by Philips but when I connect it up I get nothing but a blue screen.

    Surely component to vga cables are all wired to a universal standard sequence?

    I couldn't be unlucky enough to have got two duff cables could I?

    Any advice is much appreciated.

    Hi

    I use a VGA to component cable from Lektropaks without any problem. Maybe you haven't connected them up correctly.

    The Green plug should go to the socket marked Y
    The Red plug should go to the socket marked Pr
    The Blue plug should go to the socket marked Pb

    For the TV to sync to the signal it at least needs the Y (Green) cable connected.

    Hope this helps

    Regards

    Hi steeled,

    Checked the cables and they are connected to the DVD player as you describe.

    I really am scratching my head on this one.

    Thanks anyway,

    Tir
