    I started off with a SyncBlaster and found that when I get certain colour combinations (i.e white on blue) I get a very feint shadow/streak right across the screen.

    I want to stress that its VERY feint and only happens with certain colour combinations.

    I then upgraded to a JS VGA box and used a Iiyama cable to connect it to the Plasma.

    I still see the same phenomenon and to be honest, I would say that its slightly worse.

    I often see it when there is text (i.e subtitles). But only when they are on top of a certain range of colours.

    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Would upgrading the cable be likely to resolve this? I am tempted to invest in a VDC cable, but don't want to spend the extra cash if it won't help.

    i get the same problem on my tft monitor. adjusting the phase fixes the problem, but is there a way to stop this happening altogether?

    Jon - For what you are saying and have done, what is the status of the source? I use an RGB + sync cable from a Sky+ to a 42PWB5 which shows absolutely none of the symptoms you state. My DVD RGB is also switched through the Sky+ and again no problems.

    If I switch to AV and display the composite signal, there is a very slight shadow/streak. I know it must be annoying but assume you have tried it with a different source.
