    Hi

    I've got my HTPC working and everything is working well.

    One thing I noticed when watching a movie last night though was that on the very very slow pans, I could see 'artifacts' a bit on the screen. It's a bit difficult to describe - it wasn't really jerky, more like part of the picture was moving one pixel too far compared to the adjoining part. The net result was it made the picture look very good BUT digital - it lost the 'film quality' because all of a sudden I was aware of pixels.

    Is this a common issue? It only did it on very very slow pans...

    Ideas?
    Cheers
    John

    Tearing?
    Try 60Hz refresh rate.

    Does it only happen on NTSC discs?

    It could be 3:2 pulldown.

    Thanks for the replies.
    The player is PowerDVD. The refresh rate is 56hz because this is a sony HS10. I'm not sure what 'tearing' on an LCD projector would look like although I can guess.

    I thought it was a significant improvement when I went from Power DVD to Theatretek and a lot of mu gripes PQ wise disappeared.

    Hi
    I've been considering buying Theatretek. I'm a bit fed up because I've just paid online for PowerDVD and AFAIK there is no refund policy on it now that I've got it. :( Especially since it was a download rather than a physical disk.. :(

    I don't think that changing to TT from PowerDVD will reduce the stutter on pans. It's because u are locked into 56Hrz refresh rate which does not suit Pal or NTSC playback. If u are going to continue to use a HCPC with the HS10, I think that it's something you will have to live with
