I popped in "The Abyss" today, and noticed that the picture looked extremely fake and "plastic" looking. Kind of like when you have VSM (or is it SVM?) turned all the way up. When I turned off Progressive scan, I got a smooth film-like image. The DVD player I'm using is a Sony NS-700P with the dreaded chroma bug. TV is a 65" RP Widescreen HD (Mits). Also, when watching Moulin Rouge, I absolutely HAVE TO turn off progressive, because the movie is covered in "red" colors, and that's when the chroma bug rears it's ugly head. Everything that's red has scanlines through it. As soon as progressive is turned off, the picture looks all smooth and natural. The Abyss & Moulin Rouge are the only titles that I've had to turn off Progressive Scan for, (but for different reasons). I was wondering if maybe my DVD player had trouble with the flagging on the "Abyss" disc, or if anyone else had experienced this as well. Do any of you turn off Progressive scan for certain individual titles?
