A bit of a story first: I am in the middle of upgrading all my viewing/audio equipment and have started with my tv. Now have a 28" Panasonic flat widescreen Love it. Anyhow, on my old Panasonic square telly I never noticed dot crawl at all. I am pretty sure it was there, the picture was just never big enough or clear enough for me to see it. I am using a PlayStation 2 for my DVD player at the moment and assumed it was the fault of that. I replaced my rubbish scart that the PS2 came with to an S-video and that has improved it slightly. Anyhow, after swatting up about dot crawl and shimmering beign quite common on one of the other forums, I came to wondering if it was worse on Region 2 than say, Region 1, because of all the languages and subtitle tracks etc that are shoved on movies. Incidentally, the movie that it is worst on is my R2 version of the Matrix. The Matrix of all things?? Wasn't that mostly shot on digital film anyway? Or am I talking rubbish. Thoughts? Ta!
