    I've had a Pioneer DV-575 for about 2 months now and the list of problems with it is growing. The things I have noticed wrong with it so far are as follows:

    1) Almost continuous horizontal banding when playing a 2.35:1 ratio film. Particularly noticable in brighter scenes.

    2) Jumpy playback on 'Welcome to the Jungle' around the 1 hour mark. Sometimes freezes altogether.

    3) Will not play Episode 4 of 'That Peter Kay Thing'. Just starts the episode and then freezes.

    With points 2 and 3 there is definitely nothing wrong with either disc because I have tried them on 3 other DVD players and they play perfectly.

    I have the player connected to a Toshiba 24Z33 widescreen CRT TV using a QED P2110 RGB Scart lead.

    Has anyone else had similar problems with this player? I'm starting to wish I hadn't sold my old Panasonic DVD/VCR...

    Ah yes, the ol' Pioneer RGB Scart curse!!

    Forget it mate. Nothing you can do about it. its a design fault that afflicts almost all pioneer dvd players, from the 464 to the 757. Welcome to the club!

    Major, major pain in the bum, I know. All I can recommend is using s-video or investing in a tv that has component inputs (i.e. plasma, or most toshiba 16:9 toshiba crt's).

    There are loads of threads in this forum about the problem. just type in "565 banding" and you'll get lots of results.
