    model is Pj-TX100

    i noticed this about 6 months maybe longer ago and it never bothered me & it didnt seem to be messing with my image and dont think it is now. its the time to ask what the hell it is though. to me it looks like just the projected image on the lens so i could be totally over-reacting to something.

    my camera skills arnt the best so bere with me, im on about the rectangular thing on the lens, as i said i think its just the image being projected and its on the inside of the lens

    I think it is safe to say that is just the image being projected through the lens (I assume when you took the picture there was a large blue area being projected on to you screen? ;) )

    My pj has had little use this last couple of months due to work so I am looking forward to Batman and Land of the Dead dropping through the letterbox so she can be put to good use again :D

    It's normal to have dust specs on the front of the lens, it's impossible to keep it 100% dust free. It shouldn't affect the image...PJ

    Interestingly, though I still get an occasional glimpse of VB on my trusty Pioneer 575 via component, I haven't seen one trace of VB with my Oppo via DVI....PJ

    yep ive had my spats with VB as well documented on this forum :D but i changed some settings got alot more contrast out of the beast whilst keeping a bright punchy image and i dont even notice VB 99% of the time. ive also trained my eye not to look for it and just to enjoy the bloody film im watching :)

    just reading Tx200 is quoted a 7000:1 CR ratio :eek: i want i want i want, even if it makes half of that

    It's actually the D5 panels I'm more interested in - I'm a bit miffed everyone's focussing on technology we've seen before (ie dynamic iris) and not saying much about reduced VB/SDE and increased pixel fill...PJ
