    I have been seeing these faint light-blue "shadows" to the right of certain images on my projector. Now I never saw these before so I am wondering whether it's my cables or something...I'm using a 480p progressive-scan dvd-player with component outs to the projector. How important are the cables? I'm currently using 3 25-foot RCA cables to connect the dvd-player to the projector so maybe that's the problem. Anybody else ever have this problem with progressive-scan component outs?? Thanks!

    Well...I did some switching cables and when I plug the dvd-player directly into the projector with my one set of cables the shadows are gone and when I use the 25-foot cables from my av selector they are there...so basically it's the 25-foot rca cables I'm using that is the problem...one question...are there 25-foot component cables that use RCA type wires and ones that use COAXLE wires? Because I've been looking to buy cables and some say they use 75 ohm coaxle wire and others don't say...are there two different types? Thanks!!

    Well, I've been using ordinary (sorry I don't know the specifics, I was using an old role I'd bought from b and q for £10) white coax in a 15 mtr run for my component wiring and it's been excellent. Way better than the retail set I'd bought.
