I posted this question on the AVS-forum earlier today, but as this seems to be a Reg2-problem, I thought Id post it here as well. Maybe someone has a solution to my problem. Anyway, Ive had my Denon-3800 hooked up to an Epson TW-100 using a S-video cable for some weeks now, and the picture quality is just awesome. Simply mind-blowing !! And when I painted my home-made MDF-screen grey, the PQ got even better. But the strive for better PQ goes on, and last night I tested a component cable for the very first time. Well, a truly great picture turned even better, with darker blacks, sharper images, more depth, more details in short, more of everything !! After doing the AVIA-calibration I run a few movies, and everything was fine until all of a sudden I didnt get a proper image, i.e. the picture disappeared for a few seconds and then it was back for a few seconds (flickering) and then it was gone again and so on. I tested some ten movies, and the following ones played OK: Golden Eye, Legally Blond, Dirty Harry and Spy Game. The picture was distorted when running Titanic, MI2, Cast Away and LOTR. All of the movies are Reg2. Accidentally I found the reason for the flickering image. The projector seems to receive a 525i(60)-signal, even though Im running a Reg2 (PAL) disk. The signal type can be checked in one of the menus of the projector. I assumed that something was wrong with the set-up on my DVD-player, and pressed the set up-button on the remote. As a result, the movie stopped (not so strange), and I get a perfect picture (this is strange!!). And when I check the signal type on the projector is said 625i(50). Very strange !! When I pressed play, the flickering image was back and the signal was back to 525i(60). I may add, that when running the movies that played OK, the signal was 625i(50) all the time (when running and when in set-up-mode). The Video-Out on my Denon 3800 is set to Interlaced, and the AV1-Video-Out is set to S-video. I also noticed, that the AV1-Video-Out affects the Component output (according to the manual, the AV1-Video-Out affects only the Scart-output). When I set the AV1-Video-Out to RGB-mode, the player sent a progressive signal regardless of the settings of the Video-Out (Progressive/Interlaced), meaning that no Reg2-disk played properly. Thats why I run it in S-video-mode. Does anyone have similar experiences or an explanation to whats going on ?? Or even better - a solution to the problem ?? Maybe the new firmware will solve the problem ?
