has anyone else noticed this on the hs50...on some images mainly in background there appears to be some sort of ghosting/noise around characters...mainly noticable on animated dvd's shrek etc. i have my pj connected via component and got to loan a denon 1910 player and hooked up using hdmi to dvi. this improved the pq but the noise was still evident albeit not as bad. i went back to the shop where i viewed the shop pj, it was hooked up using hdmi to a pioneer 868 and again it was evident. if you take shrek for example when shrek and donkey emerge from the field to go to the castle and fight in the tournament,if you look at the plants in the field as he emerges there is noise around the plants. it is not really noticable when sat at normal viewing distance but up close it is quite obvious. i have previously posted a similar thread and have read on avsforums where VPN is mentioned and it is likened to a football pitch as the camera pans an area on the field appears the shimmer.. i would appreciate others to check shrek and other dvd's and see if they have the same problem..it may be down to my dvd player which is now 4 years old but i also find that the problem is also lessened when disabling DDE on picture settings.
