Hi! I've been going CRAZY the past several months looking for solutions to this problem. I own an NEC MT1040 projector and have been experiencing image distortion on the top of the screen. This only occurs when using Component output or VGA output from a DVD player and never when using S-Video or composite video out. Also, the warping only occurs on SOME DVD's, not all. I have tried everything imagineable to find a solution. I have shortened cables, purchased better quality cables, tried several models of DVD players. I finally purchased an awsome DVD player (Denon DVD-910) in hopes of it correcting the issue. I have wasted sooo much time and money and was furious to see that the new DVD player did NOT correct the problem. Although the picture is stunning! I finally found the problem, although do not know how to correct it. I took a DVD I knew exibits the problem. I burned a copy of a chapter from the movie (YES, I OWN this movie!) and VOILA! NO IMAGE DISTORTION! YES!! I then asked myself why my copy worked. I disabled macrovision in my copy. I then created another copy leaving the macrovision enabled. Image was warped again. I was so relieved to finally find the problem cause I was gonna open-up my projector and look for a bad capacitor or something. As far as I know, macrovision is only supposed to affect the luminence values? Brightness? I'm not familiar with this new form or why it only affects component or VGA out, not S-video or composite. I just wanna watch a DVD on my projector without seeing the distortions! Can this be done? Can't even find a macrovision hack for my Denon DVD player. I cannot believe that after all I've gone through, I cannot watch a DVD because of copy-protection that "supposedly" is NOT supposed to affect DVD viewing, but only copying. What am I gonna do? Please drop a suggestion. Is there a way around this? And NO, I do NOT want to buy another DVD player. I now own THREE brand new DVD players! My Denon is staying. My projector is staying. The component cables are staying. Thanks for reading and for any help! I hope somebody will learn from my experience. I will return to this post often to read for coments. THANKS!! PS: Attached is a picture of the warping at the top of my image. Sorry it's a dark one.
