I just received my DVD of Mishima and I noticed that there is a slight jumping of the image throughout the film. It is not very noticeable but it is annoying and I was wondering if this is a problem with the disc, the transfer or my player(a Sony). I tried it out on my friends player but it also had the same problem (his is a Sony too). I was wondering if anyone else noticed this or had the same problem? I'm very confused and I'm not sure what to do. Thanks in advance.

Yes. I thought maybe I was being too finicky, but after a while, on my 50" Toshiba (with line doubler), the motion drives me batty! I have noticed this on a handful of DVDs. My new copy of Gandhi is rock solid, image-wise. Surely the telecine transfer techs can see the difference between a solid image and one that flits about in the frame when they test drive the finished product, BEFORE sending it to production?

After looking at it again, I definitely think this is a problem with the transfer and not the disc or my player. Thee top of the frame is jumping up & down and disappearing slightly against the black bar which indicates a transfer problem, not a player problem. Another strike against Warner!

I have had no problem with this disc in my set-up whatsoever. I am also quite happy with the film & transfer. Reg
