Hello all Got myself one of these S540's from Richer Sounds for a bargain price. Hooked it up to my Toshiba 36zd26p and it blew my Wharfedale 750 out of the water. Colours, sharpness and sound are fantastic. I bought the S540 for 2 main reasons... 1) the Tosh will accept NTSC Prog Scan via the component input, which the S540 can output 2) the S540 will convert PAL DVDs to NTSC So, on playing the region 2 disk 'Star Trek Nemesis' via Prog Scan, NTSC output using the component output, into the Tosh component input .... I get a judder. Looks like a frame is missing and makes the movement quite 'jerky'. Same thing happens on 'MIB II', but not so much on 'The Fast and The Furious'. I borrowed a region 1 'Matrix' from a friend. Now, I take this disc to be NTSC coded, so output Prog Scan, component output, NTSC to the Toshiba should give no judder which is just about right. Theres some slight 'judders' when head movement is very slow, but nothing to worry me about. The S540 manual states some distortion may occur when converting PAL discs to NTSC. Is that right and has anyone found the same with this player? Thanks. J. PS. Watching region 2 discs via PAL, component output, into the Tosh component input is stunning anyway. Star Wars The Phantom Menace and Toy Story II are blinding!
