    I have a Sony KE42TS2E plasma and connect the 575 via component... has anyone else noticed that the Pioneer logo when the machine is switched on is less sharp than if the player is connected via RGB and SCART ? I also notice noise (red dots) around the screen at this point too.. again these disappear when not using progressive. The actual picture via progressive on films is probably better (seems to depend on disc)

    How long is the cable? Noise can often be introduced by a cable not up to the job.

    Oh well, it was a good idea while it lasted :( .. wouldn't expect a problem with that length and brand.

    Mine is similar,

    The pioneer logo is fuzzier around the edges with component progressive, however, dvd menu's and the films themselves are much better quality than with scart or interlaced.

    I wouldn't worry about it unless you just watch the logo.

    when playing a disc in widescreen (i.e. with black bars) I get red 'noise' within those bars. I have noticed this with a few discs. I thought it might be the plasma, but my friends projector seems to do the same thing. If you set the picture to RGB or non progressive it disappears and the pixels are dark.. is this progressive scan ?

    That should not happen.
    Sounds like a faulty unit, get it replaced. Did you use the same player
    with your friends projector or does he also have a faulty player??

    I ran progressive signals from a Pioneer DV-470 (uses same video DAC as the 575) into my KE32TS2 plasma, and was blown away by the improvements in picture quality over interlaced signals. The increased level of detail is what makes the Pioneer logo look rubbish! Shame the player was so bloody unreliable...

    As for the noise problem, I've seen several 42" Sony plasmas from that period (mainly KE42TS2's and KE42MR1's) and they had varying degrees of noise. The 42MR1's in particular had some very noticable pixel noise on every source, not just progressive. The 42TS2's weren't as bad, but the pixel noise was still visible.

    For what it's worth, I run my 575A through a Sanyo Z3 via progressive and the picture is superb - no noticeable noise in DVD menus/picture at all, nor in the player's menus. The pink logo does still look a bit like it was drawn on a ZX Spectrum though...

    My friends is a sharp projector with a high end Denon DVD player.. so I wonder whether this might be noise from the DVD source.. the noise tends to be mainly red, but a bit of blue also. The other option is that its the screen/projector displaying black that isnt really black ?

    Denon DVD player? Ok, I thought you had problem with the DV575 and
    the sharp projector. If the Denon exhibits the same noise, I don't
    know what it could be...
