    Here's my problem. :(

    I'm running my screen all through component connections. Sky and Kiss DVD player jump through.

    After about an hour the picture starts to jump not all the time though. When I call the Sky menu up you can see this happen very easliy. I run the rgb scart output into a Keene RGB2component Y,G,B and then to the screen.

    Any chance its this box and not the screen.

    Should also point out that if I call up the plasma menu it doesnt jump but the sky menu in the background does, same for dvd source as well.

    Any help much appreciated.

    zorg2000k,


    I had a similer problem, but it would only jump if i watch R1 DVD's so i had the video card changed, this solved the problem :)


    In the setup menu make sure the LINE INTP IS SET TO OFF


    hope this helps:smashin:

    Zorg,

    I had a very similar problem - It appears the Hitachi's are VERY touchy on the quality of sync signals they are sent.

    The way I solved it was to run a dedicated component cable direct from my DVD player into Video 2 and everything else (via a JS Technologies RGB to component converter) into RGB 1 configured to accept component on that input (via a component to 15 pin d-sub)

    Problem solved !!

    I've thrown most things at it via that route including some dodgy signals from some obscure satellites via a motorised sat system and it's rock solid ....

    Hope this helps

    Hi again,

    Well changed my Keene RGB2Component convertor to an J&S Technologies RGB2 and hoped that was my problem fixed.

    Unfortunatley I still have the same problem, jumping screen. When I change to composite video in with the same source the jumping screen stops.

    Do you think the video board is faulty and needs replaced ?

    TIA

    It's true the screen is very picky, had one or 2 panny's with the same kind of issues though, cured with new video board, but nver cured a hitachi sorry to say. Another reason I don't like them, shame when so much else goes in their favour.

    I agree with "The Editor". Don't think you will have a problem if you use a JS RGB - Component convertor. $ky and R1 DVD's should be fine.
    Regards.
