After getting the machine flashed to the latest software/firmware we did a comparison with a shop model at my local dealer. It was hooked up to a Panasonic PWD4 42" plasma using the progressive component. They acknowledged the problem, particularly bad on bold reds but although the shop model had the same problem, it was not quite as bad. This was on the R1 Toy Story 2 (outtakes with Mr & Mrs Potato Head - check the shoes) and the R2 Charlie's Angels (scene at the race track where the Red Star logo appears almost like Day-glow and the red hankerchief has a halo). Can anyone explain why two identical DV27s appear to have subtle differences? We also tried it on the Tag AV32FLR and there was virtually no problem - you could actually see details on the shoes.
