    Hi

    I have just got the pioneer 504 HDE, which I think is absolutely amazing BTW, but I have a little niggle with it.

    Whenever I play an RGB NTSC (525i) source into it I get a black flash, like when you press the same channel on the remote - the screen goes black for about 2-3 secs then the display in the right hand corner of the screen appears when the picture returns.

    I have tired a different DVD player, switching the inputs, and now it has done after three hours with a new media box.

    Anyone else had this problem or know what might be causing it?

    Cheers

    The 504 is quite slow at switchimng resolutions/inputs. Don't think it's a fault, just a 'feature'.

    Like the one I have when my Xbox switches in and out of progressive mode (cut scenes etc). I get wide vertical streaks and have to remove the video lead from the back of the Xbox and re-insert it. Now that is annoying :(

    Cracking plasma though :)

    The problem is that it does it in the middle of the film!

    Really strange!

    Like I said, it's only with 525i and I have had tried a new media box and different dvd player!!

    Could it be the screen?

    See many earlier threads about the 434. This is a problem with the media box. You should get on to Pio to get either an upgrade to the box or a replacement.
