Got an AE500 with 96" Screen & Hoya FL Filter. Feeding it with a Sony DVP NS930 Progressive Scan Player / JVC High Definition DVHS Player via 5M Cabletalk Component Cables. Tried the flicker tweak & numerous picture adjustments but still have about 4 nasty vertical lines that are spoiling my enjoyment, other than that the PQ is superb. Owner over at AVS Forums reckons that VB can be completely removed using the following method (but only on the VGA Input) : Finally got rid of the VB with the standard flicker tweak and in the setup menu there is an option for Auto setup (Normal) or (Special). Go to Option>OSD>Hold down ENTER>AUTO SETUP>drop down menu>SPECIAL: Back to POSITION Menu>AUTO SETUP =VB Gone!! I have not read anything on this option but thought I'd try it anyway and could not believe my eyes while I had the Nokia test pattern up and hit the auto set up button after switching it to (SPECIAL).....it went through a short cycle of picture adjustment and the VB was gone!!! I do think it had found perfect 1 to 1 pixel map. Anyway, the text / picture are crystal clear and the picture is excellent on regular DVD and HDTV. The difference is amazing. 1) Anyone tried this, did it work ? 2) Anybody find that switching to DVI Input removed VB ? 3) Anybody have any other suggestions e.g. one owner suggested that VB was caused by a dirty power source. Think he was suggesting that buying a Mains Filter that removes RFI,EMI,Spikes, etc may help ? Cheers everyone !
