I have just bought a Samsung LCD monitor which exhibits the RGB scart banding problem when using region 1 discs and Pioneer (565 ) players. The Pioneer was working fine with a Pacific CRT, the S-Video is fine into the Samsung but the cable sticks out of the side. I have tried the Mico 1028 but this does the same. Can anyone recommend a cheap multi region player which doesn't exhibit this problem? I feel alot of the newer players are sharing common components, as most are being produced in China, hence the similarity with this problem. Ged.
