    OK, I apologize in advance if this has been brought up in another post. I've read a lot of threads discussing which DVD players have the chroma bug, and how some people are more sensitive to it than others. The latest Shootout references it many times, and though I didn't read the entire thing in great detail, I didn't notice an explanation of what it actually is.
    Can someone point me to a link that explains exactly what the chroma bug is and how to spot it? I have the Pioneer Elite DV-37, and while I'm not going to freak out about the fact that it has the bug, for my own HT edification I'd like to learn more about it (so I can at least avoid it in my next player).
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    John,
    Thanks much - that's exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, I have seen evidence of this error on my Elite DV-37 - but I never knew what it was called before.

    That's weird- it says the DVL-909 has it but I've never noticed it on mine, but it's REALLY obvious on my Playstation 2!
