    I have a PT-47WX42 RPTV and a panny 62 DVD player. I have the component wires hooked up. When watching a DVD, I can see grainy "dots" on the screen, usually in dark colors and backgrounds. It happens on every DVD I play. The dots move around within the color field that they are in. Is there anyway to get rid off this. Is it the TV or the DVD player that causes this. Will using a set-up disc fix this or maybe even a better DVD player? Thanks for the help.

    When I read this, the first thing that crossed my mind is that you may have the color-saturation levels set too high on the RPTV. You might be seeing a "shimmering" effect.

    Or, everything may be so well-adjusted and calibrated that you are seeing the film grain inherent in almost any film-to-DVD-Video transfer.

    Yes, you should purchase a calibration disc. That's essential to any home theater.
