    Customer brought in a DVD player with symptoms of very poor picture quality. I was shocked to find the cause was a very bad case of chroma bug on decoder board....

    Crumbs, that's a very big bug.

    What's the manufacturer? They should really get pest control to clean up their production line. The only way a bug that big can get in is before the case lid is screwed on.

    Or maybe the customer had some mods done and it crept in atthis stage?

    My God, I hadn't realised the Chroma Bug was so big :eek:.

    No wonder manufacturers are scrambling to release slim-line players in an attempt to remove it :D.

    My first thoughts were "I don't recognise the film, and how does he expect us to spot the bug with a picture that small?".

    Work must be getting to me. I think I need to get out more......

    Ian: Web site is going to be redone around next weekend. Mu'y last day at SS is tomorrow. Having a short break for a few days then back to do web site and get info up about Key Digital and probably a few other things.

    You can look out for my first ever advert in the HCC special HiLife mag out next Thursday too.

    I expect that the Key stuff will be available through dealers as well as myself. Already one dealer has approached me to do it. I've tried really hard and I think I've managed to get UK pricing to be competative with personal importation....watch this space..

    Now where did I put that bug killer!

    I think I might have set you up for that conspicuous plug ;) ....it does sound like a very interesting product and I hope it does well for you. Will be interested to hear what the pricing ends up at.

    Regards,
