I've been having a problem with my HT200DM since I got it three years ago: the picture often seems to "lose sync" for a frame or two; the top of the frame is pushed downwards and a black-and-white striped pattern appears at the top of the screen instead. This happens whenever there's a sudden change from a low-intensity image to a high-intensity image, like when I'm watching a science fiction movie and there are lots of laser blasts through otherwise dark space. It doesn't matter whether the signal is coming in over component video or S-Video. (I'm in North America, so it's an NTSC signal.) The sudden picture flicker is jarring and detracts significantly from the viewing experience. I noticed that if I set the "Video Mode" from "Normal" to "VCR" it cuts the occurence of this problem WAY down. But I don't know if I should be setting it to VCR - the manual doesn't say what VCR mode is or does, and I don't know whether it's going to degrade the picture quality. Has anyone else seen a problem like this, or know what causes it or how to fix it?
