    Ok so i have this screen and i just got a dvd 25 off of ebay, connected it up by component and not impressed. Firstly everything seems mildly fuzzy, but more annoying is the green tint to actors faces, around dark scenes, on light things, everywhere really. I compared it with my old player through scart RGB and the old player seems more real, better colour and depth. The HK when i first connected did seem very bright like the brightness was up, and colours are blander, it is slightly sharper though. I spent 20 mins switching one disc comparing them for different scenes. Is there something i can adjust to remove the green tint problem? Could it be my lead? I wanted to run the DVD through my amp (DSP 750SE) but it wont work, the screen rolls and get bad colours, so using a direct cable now. It's a Cambridge Audio 5m jobby, got it for 40 quid but RRP is £100. Compared with a £20 scart. This is the second DVD player i have bought, and mainly to give me the option of running it through the amp, but none have yet to prove better than my old Aiwa.
    I'm getting depressed about it tbh :(

    I get this sometimes. Horrific greens, that is.

    Always on sky though.

    Funnily enough I've been messing tonight and turned ALL auto settings off.

    By all, I mean everything. CNR and black enhancement, everything !!!

    Maybe worth a go, cos I'm not impressed with the processing, anything "auto" seems to be a bad step, IMO.

    Sounds like a calibration problem to me - if it isn't a wrong setting on component / RGB (which would give hugely wrong colours). The colour temperature is adjustable on the 7200 but needs the test equipment to get it right.

    i have tried playing with settings, but i think it's more than that. dunno though. The HK 25 has a built in screen setup thingy which i have yet to try, i also got a THX setup thing on one of my film discs but tbh, it seemed very basic.
    And im still at a loss about the amp:(

    Try changing the component input from SDTV/DVD to HDTV in the settings , I think its in settings/video input/AV1 = HDTV.

    This got rid of the green tinge I had when watching DVD through Component.

    For me , it turned out that I messed up with the AVIA disc.

    It definately will be settings, IMO.

    Start all over again with your settings.

    Don't forget, they are all different for each AV input.

    I think colour decoder settings apply for all inputs though :confused:
