    I was demoing various bits of kit yesterday including DVDs on the Pio 505XDE (using one of the Pio DVD Recorders).

    Watching X-men, and at the very beginning of chapter 11 where the security guard waves his arm around you could see a distinctive "lag" on the arm movement that I believe is referred to as ghosting.

    I was watching the image at about 2-2.5 metres but I'll end up watching at nearer 5.5 metres so I don't know if that makes any difference (shop didn't want to put a hole in the wall just so I could sit 5.5m away...)

    Is there anything you can do about this kind of issue? Was a teeny bit disappointed considering the price and how good it is generally. Would the DVD player make a difference? I can't remember which one we were using but I think it was one of the higher end ones. Playing it on my laptop it didn't look as bad...

    Am I right in thinking ISF calibration doesn't help with this kind of thing?

    Cheers.
