Hi, I have noticed that on some DVDs there is a subtle, yet easily noticeable brightness flicker during some scenes. I was wondering if this is normal or if there is something wrong with my display or DVD player. When I pause the DVD, it does not exhibit the flicker during the scene in question, so it appears to be in the source. However, I do not know much about how TVs and DVD players interact with one another, so I don't know what to think. If it is in the source, why do they choose to do that? To save space or something? Anyways, I put in the recently released Hustler DVD and noticed it quite a bit. It is a very quickly oscillating brightness flicker, subtle, yet annoying in spots. I also noticed it in Artifical Intelligence. As a matter of fact, there are some scence in A.I where faces look very odd because of it. Faces seem to "blink" These are just a couple examples. Most DVDs I have seen seem to exhibit this flicker in one way or another.
