    Could be using the wrong refresh rate for the source - try 60hz or 72hz for NTSC and 75hz for PAL.

    Is this on a projector or monitor?

    Quite a lot of projectors run the panel at 60hz anyway, so PAL sources may 'jump', especialy on panning shots.

    Could be just the refresh rate that needs adjusting then.

    I assume you have a 1ghz or better cpu? If you run less than around 700mhz, then it may be insufficient processing.

    Hi ian,

    Did you just download this or is it available to buy. I had previous powerdvd that came with pc worked but no DD so I thought I would have to pay for upgrade,
    Cheers

    Hi Ian

    Are you using WinDVD5? Does the picture "jump" on or around chapter changes? I had a similar problem and discovered that it was a well known issue which had been fixed in the very latest version.
