Hi, I have just purchased a Pioneer DV444 multi-region player and this happens: On Region 2 films in RGB the picture is fine, but on Region 1 films, when in RGB mode I get distorted bands going up and down the screen. If you pause the disc the bands stay in the same place. If you rewind the bands reappear and look like they are actually part of the film. This happens on Region 1 versions of Star Wars Episode 1, The Matrix, Saving Private Ryan and The Green mile. The only Region 1 disc I have tried which plays okay is Bridget Jones Diary. I don't think its a problem with anything else in my set-up as they all worked fine on my old Panasonic player. If you turn RGB off these bands go, but the picture quality is obviously no good. I have a Thompson TV and have not tried S-video yet, but would rather run in RGB. Can anyone please help?
