    Hi,
    Can anyone please help ?
    When watching DVD movies i get shadow type grey horizontal lines across the TV screen , basically covering the screen from top to bottom. They are a few millimetres in depth and sometimes they appear to move up or down. The player is connected to the tv with a Ixos flat type scart lead and, is hardly in contact with any other cables so, interference shouldn,t be a problem. I have a Panasonic 36" widescreen tv and a Sony 725 dvd player. This is very frustrating as all i seem to do is watch the lines and not the movie !
    Any thoughts would be welcome.
    Thanks
    Kev

    I have a Sony 725 and don't get these.

    However, my neighbour has a Panasonic widescreen set and is now on his third one in two weeks due to the appearence of horizontal lines.

    They are like scan lines (which would be seen when zooming in a non-anamorphic widescreen film), they appear to bend a bit at times too.

    So, if that sounds like the same problem, maybe there was a batch of bad tvs.

    What signal are you using? Composite, S-Video or RGB?
    As well try another input of the TV and of course another TV if available to narrow down the source of the problem - change cable, too.
