    The only thing I've ever seen that sounds like this, is heat haze from a front vented projector. Got a feeling it may not be though :)

    Could just be digital noise if you have it set to show blacker-than-black...try lowering the brightness slightly and see if it goes away.

    it could be the automatic gamma boost that this PJ applies in dark scenes... combined with the iris, it's the reason why this PJ is so good with shadow details. You should also make sure you have white (contrast) and black (brightness) levels set up corretly - if you have windows MCE, there's an excellent guided setup for this kind of thing.

    Thanks guys. Sounds more like what it is. Im currently running with defaults apart from the colour down a few notches. Will get round to calibrating it one day :)
