    Played a dvd the other night on my pw6b, the top & bottom bars were the same size. i am sure that during the dvd the bottom bar got slightly bigger it seemed to return to the normal size a few mins later, has anybody else noticed this am using dv89 through prog-scan which i have been using for the last 4 months, also have wobble and side bars set on low on the screen saver,

    this is normal if you have wobble switched on, it's designed to slowly move the image around so that high contrast areas are not concentrated in one place for too long, reducing the chances of screen burn, this is a good feature and I would recommend leaving it switched on.

    It could have been coded on the disc I guess - its not unheard off to get bad transfers; which Movie were you watching? maybe someone can test the same scene on a similar set-up.

    As for the 'Wobble' feature I have to say I'd never have it switched on in a Home Theatre set-up - its designed for use in Digital Signage (where it has little positive effect I find) and is doing you no favours image quality wise; it can only get in the way of a clean Input signal.

    Best regards
