Hi, On my out of the box, untweaked (apart from dynamic -> cinema), not run in 37" PV500 I've noticed one thing I wasn't expecting. I've hooked up my Pioneer 868 DVD via HDMI (£50 QED cable) and solid blacks "fizzle" when I look up close to the screen. You can see it either on black bars of 2.35:1, or when the player is stopped. It looks like totally random noise made up of really dark greens and blacks. You don't notice after stepping backwards a couple of feet, and there is not really the same fizzling on normal images. I was just curious if this is to be expected? Thanks!
