I've hooked up my Philips 30PF9975 via its component sockets to a Pioneer DV-575A DVD player. The DVD player is ouputting a progressive signal (the 30PF9975 will not take an interlaced, i.e., 576i signal), with the TV reporting it is receiving a 576p signal. The TV is configured to progressive scan via its picture menu. Great picture, however, about an hour after starting to watch a film, the picture was periodically lost, i.e., a blue screen for about a second. This was intermittent and I couldn't reproduce it on demand. It seemed that this happened a few times in a row, and then was ok for a while, and then it did it again. There were no loose connections or broken cables, and it happened with all my DVDs. I guessed something was getting hot or interference was building up as it took a while for the problem to manifest. Anyways, the player went back as faulty. Unfortunately, the replacement has been doing the same thing. However, it has also done it within minutes of starting the film, so it appears unlikely anything is getting too hot. I've spoken with Pioneer and Philips about this, but they were both at a loss to explain it. Has anyone had the same problem with the same DVD player and / or TV? Has anyone had any other brand of DVD player working with this TV via the component inputs using progressive scan? UPDATE - Seems that it was actually the TV which is faulty. Found this out thanks to AVLand for going beyond the call of duty and loaning me another brand of player. As an aside, major thanks to all at AVLand. Best service I've ever had from an internet retailer, actually any retailer to be honest. Now the headache of getting this TV sorted which somehow I reckon will be far more difficult.
