Hi Don't know whether you guys have come across this problem before. I currently have a panasonic PWD6 display, connected via a component cable to a SONY 735d DVD, which is 'auto-region-switching'. On some DVDs the picture seems to cut out, giving me a momentary 'No display' message on the plasma, or a quick screen blackout - and then the picture is back again. Its difficult to pin-point when it happens on each DVD, but it does happen for region 1 and 2 DVD's. When I switch to SCART connection, the problem does not occur, yet i know that component cable should work just as good. I've been told that because the DVD player is auto-switching ('chipped'), it could be that the DVD player that is causing the problem. Does the PWD6 plasma work with Sony DVD's - or is there a compatability issue? and have you come across this problem before? I haven't been able to swap one DVD player with another cos most of my mates DVD players are the same as mine! emailed Panasonic with the issue last week - no response! If i do need to get another DVD, what would be ideal? Panasonic S75, Harman Kardon 25??? - all i want is the ability to play region 1 and 2, and NTSC/PAL progressive output via component. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
