    I have got one of these for the play room off the kitchen and so far all has been well.

    My wife informed me however that since Thursday it has been blanking at scenes with bangs in!!

    I have had a play and it seems to be losing the signal when the picture goes from dark to very white or has very fast action colour/shade changes. The screen goes blank and then the icon in the top left hand corner comes in detailing it as HD-A.

    I have played around and it only does it when in progressive scan mode and I am linked up via the DVI socket to component on the DVD player. When setting the DVD player to Interlace and running through SCART it does not do it. I have tried two DVD players and it's still the same. I reset up the THX optimizer and it is better but does in a lot in trailers and alike. I have tested actual films and it seems better, but I am not sure what is happening. When the plane blew up in Incredibles it would do it but that is now corrected. This is a new thing as it was not like it until Thursday. Not sure if this is connected but we only got normal TV last week and Thursday was the first day my wife was able to show DVD's as she did not know which AV channel it was on.

    The build up for the menu in Incredibles (when they are kicking and the screen flashes) starts it off and trailers for the Matrix II. Not really tested anything else.

    Any advice?

    Thanks.

    Not noticed this phenomenon with my 4310.

    I did replace the DVI-component leads that come with the set as these looked a bit thin and nasty, and bought some that were better constructed and shielded. These did reduce some of the noise in the picture which I put down to interference with the cheap leads. Don't know if that will help you. Possibly there is some interference now you have connected up "normal TV" (not sure precisely what you mean by that though...)

    Normal TV is just standard TV through the ariel socket. I will take this out and see it it still does it.

    tell me what other settings you have for picture etc, on the 4310, and I will compare it with mine

    Loz,

    My 3 years old has been playing with the remote and the settings are now all over the place. Not had time to sit down and look at them, what have you got your picture settings on? I might try and mirror that and see how it is.
