    I have just received my new DV-575 to replace my DV-444 and I am somewhat disappointed with a persistent 'bug' - the player is hooked up to a Toshiba MT200 DLP projector and the problem is that in certain scenes, certain objects in the scene become extremely jagged, almost sharply blurred. I noticed this happening in LOTR II - it happens in the same places, in once scene it's Frodo's cape that has this effect, another scene it's the legs of the oliphants when they come under attack.

    However, I watched several scenes in Private Ryan and found nothing. I was sitting on my couch until midnight like an obsessed fool, switching my old and new DVD players and comparing scenes - the funny thing is I have absolutely no problem on the DV-444. I have tried playing around with the settings, (BNR, switching between Progressive and Interlaced) and nothing! I even tried switching between RGB and S-video inputs and no luck.

    I have searched the internet and found nothing on this and am hoping that someone would be able to shed some light on this, since I am considering returning the unit (really hesitant because I have heard nothing but good stuff about the DV-575). I am also in the doghouse with my wife because she thinks I spent 150.00 Euros on junk.

    I have attached a rough sketch to give you and idea.

    Thanks in advance for help offered.

    Strange. Did you try using Component in progressive mode as well?
    Is it an R2 LOTR II or R1?
    I might have seen a similar effect in one single scene in my R1 Vertigo,
    but that's about it. I have to have a second look it.

    I tried using component in progressive, same thing - however I did not quite understand what you mean by saying R2 - does this mean the release version? If so I will have to check this evening when I get back home.

    don't mean to be a kill joy But I had similar issues.
    the 575 had superb colours but the sharpness(jaggies) was too much on some films eg starwars, but none on others eg i,robot. I was using a CRT (Loewe Vitros) RGB connection interlaced. It got on my nerves so much I swapped it for a S97

    *gulp* I'm hoping there is a way around this, because if not I might be following in your footsteps and have the unit returned.

    R2 = Region 2 (UK, Europe Disc)

    R1 = Region 1 (USA, Canada Disc)

    I've taken the decision - I'm going to return it, I guess it's probably worth dishing out a bit more and getting a Denon or an NAD....
