    I have just purchased the pioneer 757 player. Having plugged it into the rgb input on my panny tx36pf10, I get what looks like interference lines going down the screen every inch or so. If connected via composite or s-video, they are not visible.

    These lines do not appear when sky, ps2 or my old sony 525 were connected.

    Any help will be extremely appreciated, as this new player is what i've wanted for a while

    Hi,

    Have you tried another (well screened) Scart lead? Worth a go.

    Tried it this arvo on my sisters panny 32, but no lines at all. I use a QED squart lead, dvd direct to tv.

    I am now thinking its a problem with the rgb of my tv:(

    Sounds like your seeing flyback lines.
    Try reducing the contrast and/or brightness a touch if that is
    possible.

    Tried the brightness/contrast thing, no difference. It happened when I had an Xbox, which I took back as I thought it was faulty.
    Only appears under RGB

    I had the very same problem (from your description) when using rgb with a pioneer 626d.
    These were lines that scanned down horizontally in approx 2" bands which showed-up more against black/dark screens.
    Never actually did get rid of it.
    As you said, it is not there when using s-vid or composite so I used s-vid to remedy the problem.
    At the time I just put it down to my TV as I thought it was a problem with that being 50htz (couldn't think of anything else at the time).
    As previously suggested try different scart leads, failing that return the player and exchange for a new unit. Might be a Pioneer issue.
    If you do find out exactly what the problem is, I would be interested to know what it was.
