I've had my KD-34XBR2 for about one week now, and I've tried to play several DVDs (Freeway, The Pledge, Terminator 2, Leon: The Professional) on it using my Toshiba SD-3109 (connected via component) since it arrived. However, on two DVDs, Enemy of the Gates and Thirteen Days (TD), I've noticed some picture irregularities. On Enemy at the Gates, there was one scene where for a split second the picture looked like it was having a sort of frame dropout or what could be looked upon as a skip of the image. This happened during the middle of the movie and didn't manifest itself again. However, I just finished watching TD and there was a couple of times where the screen seemed to go to black for a split second (almost barely noticeable) and then return to normal. There was also one occasion where the picture seemed to flicker or skip for a brief part of a second. I am using the Cinemotion DRC mode for all of my DVDs, btw, and once again I have only noticed this phenomenon on those two discs. FYI, I did back up to the trouble spot on both discs and the problem did NOT manifest itself again. It should be noted that both discs were rentals, and did have a smudge or two on them. Nevertheless, this problem did not seem to be a typical dirty disc issue. Then again, this is the best TV I've ever owned, and perhaps if it receives faulty data from a bad part on the disc, it will magnify the issue moreso than a regular TV would. Oh, and last but not least, I have not noticed any problems watching DirecTV or regular antenna-based TV in the Cinemotion mode. Does anyone have any ideas on this? For now, I'm just going to hope it was a dirty disc or two, but I would love to hear from other 34XBR2 owners if they've seen this same dilemma.
