I recently replaced my broken Harman/Kardon DVD 50 with a RP-82 after hearing SO many great things about it on this forum. The first thing I did was watch movies I was well aquainted with so I could see how it stacked up against my H/K video-wise. While the picture looks great for the most part, I'm seeing weird things I haven't before and was wondering if any of you are getting the same thing. Before I continue, here is my hookup: Prog. Out with Acoustic Research component cables into a Mitsubishi 46" 16X9 HDTV. Calibrated with AVIA. The first thing I put in was The Phantom Menace. I was never bothered by the EE on this film as many others were. On my H/K, it was barely noticeable. Now, it's like everyone has some sort of force-field around them. Also, during the landing on Tatooine, the sky has grain that does not look film related, but like it's the player doing it. It a strange opaque grain that stays stationary as the picture moves. I get this pretty bad on Brotherhood of the Wolf and Panic Room also. I also get some aliased edges along peoples arms and such. Everything just looks more digital and less film-like. Lastly, I get wavy lines like on blinds, pin stripe suits, etc. Most recently I saw this with Shawshank Redemption, with the inmated striped clothes which, in the four times I watched this movie on my H/K, I don't recall ever noticing (at least not this bad). I have messed with the player settings a ton, but I still am not satisfied with it. Like I said, for the most part, it has a good picture (very vivid), there are just too many little things I am noticing that are very distracting. I think I may have become completely spoiled by my H/K's picture quality. Is this a normal thing with this player?
