    I just got my DV79 2 days ago, upgrading from a pioneer 668. It is connected to a sharp xvz 10000 via component. Watching the picture (Star wars, episode II, Region 2), it shows more detail and fantastic colours compared to the pioneer. However, I get the feeling that there is a kind of haze in front of the picture, which i have not experienced with the Pioneer.

    I went into the setup and noticed that the text in the OSD, which is in yellow with a blue box behind when selected, has a kind of shadow behind. When I switch the progressive scan off, all the text appears in a mixture of white and yellow.

    I wonder if this is an indication of where this problem comes from.

    Since this was not the case with the pioneer, I want to know if this a default in the player or a faulty setup.

    Thanks for your advice

    Sorry for you, the thing's a P.O.S., don't bother, sell it to me for 50%.
    Seriously now,
    This looks like a cable shielding fault, just use 3 good coax cables (normal RG59CU is fine) + metal plugs.
    Now I hear you hollering "I used the same cables on the Pio" - well it may be the BW is different (try connecting the DVD directly to the receiver).
    Yet to see a decent OSD apart from my Denon DVD-2900, so don't judge by that...

    yellowy green OSD is an interlaced thing. Clears up in PS.
    Nothing to worry about, I believe Arcam are doing a fix in a software upgrade for the future.

    Cheers,
